Advanced Disk Clearer 1.0

Free
An application for cleaning your computer of useless files.
 
1.0.2 (See all)

Advanced Disk Clearer is an application that allows you to clean your computer of useless files. It is intended to help you regain wasted disk space so you can enjoy a healthier operating system that hopefully will perform better and finish the running tasks in a reasonable amount of time.

The program installs in the menu bar of your Mac. This way, you can launch it with ease whenever the situation requires it. The first time you open the application, you need to determine the Home directory. This folder will be scanned automatically every time you launch the utility. However, you will have the unpleasant surprise to learn that you won't get much help in your attempt to clean your computer because of the severe limitations the free version has. Namely, the program lets you remove only the app logs, since the other modules are locked unless you buy them in order to benefit from the tool's entire capabilities.

However, it is a matter of chance if the locked cleaning modes will actually work after the purchase. I dare to say that this app is just a trap planned by a crafty developer eager to make money on behalf of ignorant users. I came to this conclusion because the official description of the program doesn't warn you by any means about the drastic limitations of the program's free version. And what is more, the basic functionalities like moving to Trash and cleaning, aren't available at all, at least not with the only unlocked module, which is removing app logs.
