Advanced SystemCleaner is a system optimization utility that offers to enhance your computer performance by removing junk files. The application provides multiple system maintenance tools, which are designed to help you scan your Mac for viruses, uninstall obsolete apps, delete duplicate files, and remove local copies of e-mail downloads and attachments. Except for the junk cleaning function, all the other features can be enabled only after purchasing a license.
Once you open the application, you are provided with general information about some of the most important system issues, such as the processor, the total memory, the free space in relation to the total storage capacity, and the OS version installed on your Mac. In addition, you have the chance to see the date and the time of the former cleaning process. Scanning for junk files requires a manual selection of the type of files you want the program to retrieve in order to remove them permanently. This way, you can ask the app to search for caches, logs, Trash files, broken login items, iOS photo caches, and iOS software updates. To narrow the scan operation, you can select a particular drive or a specific folder, as well as the categories of files you wish the program to identify. When the search for junk files is complete, you can inspect each category of files for a detailed view of the contents.
The tool also comes with a system monitoring function, located in the menu bar of your Mac. It allows you to check the CPU usage, the memory consumption, and the network connection at any moment. If necessary, you can free up the RAM with only one click of a button.
To conclude, the free version of Advanced SystemCleaner is limited to identifying and removing junk files. However, the cleaning operation is simple and intuitive, so that anyone can enable it with ease.
