My MacBook Pro is five years old and has an SSD and you probably immediately know the problem: space. I love being able to take video of my adorable kids in 4k (hopefully future-proofing those images), but a 1 minute takes half a gigabyte of space (yikes!) and last year my Mac’s SSD was rapidly running out of space. What I needed was a way to easily clean up gigabytes of space–not just 1-3 gigs, but 10-30, and hopefully in a way that wouldn’t make me want to poke my eyeballs out in drudgery.
Enter CleanMyMac X, a fantastic app that has helped me reclaim over 40 gigabytes with dead-simple ease. What I love most about CleanMyMac X–and why I asked MacPaw to sponsor MDM Deals–is that its Smart Scan turns hours-consuming drudgery of finding and deleting files into a simple process that takes a couple clicks. Click once and Smart Scan goes through your computer and identifies space-hogging files that you don’t need: system language & localizations you’ll never use, hidden caches, app-specific trash bins you’ve forgotten to empty, mail attachments you can download again, and much much more. Click once more, and *poof*, CleanMyMac X removes the space hogs, giving you gigabytes back, just like this:
One of the additions in the X version is that it now also scans for malware and perform system maintenance & optimization tasks. All that, with one simple click. Of course, you can manually choose what files it finds to clean up, but I’ve found its analysis is so good that I just trust the automatic settings. CleanMyMac X even helps you identify the largest unused files on your computer so that you can decide what to do with them–nice.
CleanMyMac X is a dead-simple, safe, and easy way to reclaim your space and get your life back. I’ve been a very happy user and highly recommend it to anyone who has a Mac–you’ll be amazed at not only how much space it can save you but how much time as well. Best yet? It’s a 100% free download.
