2.9.1 (See all)

This application is a system optimization tool that offers to boost memory usage and clean your computer of junk, duplicate, and unused files. With a straightforward approach, the utility is designed for home users who are in need of a simple, yet efficient tool to make their Mac computers perform better.

The program has a clear-cut and intuitive interface, which makes the scanning and cleaning tasks easy to carry out. The application provides all functions as suggestive icons displayed at the bottom of the main window so that you can enable them with ease whenever the situation requires. Freeing up and reclaiming unused memory is done easily. The program checks your system for memory usage and, at the end of the scanning process, it shows information on the total amount of RAM memory that has been freed. You can track the memory status in real time, as the tool monitors CPU and RAM usage on a permanent basis, displaying the updated data as handy and easy-readable graphs.

You can also ask the program to scan for temporary files like logs, caches, downloads, cookies, and other browsing histories. The Trash folder is also the subject of the scanning process, as it usually stores unnecessary files that you forgot to delete permanently. Once the scan is over, the application shows the number of items identified and the amount of storage space that is about to be cleaned.

Searching for duplicate and unused files is another task that the program offers to perform. To narrow the search, you can set scanning filters, like the size and the creation date of your files. The results support previewing, but unfortunately, you can't take any action on the identified files and folders – you cannot neither delete items nor move them to another location.

In conclusion, Optimize Disk helps you save valuable disk space. With a clean computer, your system's health and performance will notably improve and it will run better.
