Ratings and Reviews
Almost Too Easy
The new interface is excellent. It allows the user to view individual files and check each one off BEFORE deleting them or select whole groups of files for deletion. It even prompts you to make a Time Machine back up prior to making the final deletion so that if you've made an error you can reinstall any mistakes you've made. Great job guys! This was the money well spent for a program! If you follow the directions (fellow men listen) you can’t go wrong! This app gives you almost every option you could ask for and remembers all you’ve selected from the last time you used it. I tink the few the rated it less than great didn’t read before they clicked and hadn’t made a backup using time machine or some other program. I love it.
Get ready for constant ads for other FIPLAB products
If you get this or any other FIPLAB product you’ll also get neat little (GIANT) ad’s for their other products anytime they want to give it to you. I own several of them sadly and I’m not going to install any of them on my new mac for this reason alone. There is no option to opt out of these ads and it comes without warning when the programs open. These products are OK, but nothing magical and not worth this. I also suspect half of these reviews are fake hype since nobody has mentioned this for a while and a year or so ago a review like this was not alone but now they are buried by glowing reviews. It’s gotten worse and I’m done with it. Lastly get ready to buy this over and over again as they make tiny improvements along with a new fancier name in order to re-sell you the same stuff (remember extreme memory clean anyone?)
Limited to startup drive
Disk Doctor is a good application. It finds a lot of stuff and lets you see and select what you want to clean up.
But it is only able to work on the startup drive. I have several external hard drives with lots of junk that I was hoping to use Disk Doctor on, but only the startup drive and folders on that drive can be scanned.
It seems that you are only allowed to select the folder you want to work on the first time you start the app. After that it will only scan that location. If you want to change the location to a different folder on the startup drive, you must use a terminal command to erase the Disk Doctor preferences. This seems to be an unnecessary limitation. None of the other disk cleaning apps I have are so limited.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
