TrimTheFat 0.7

TrimTheFat is a small application that helps you regain some of your disk space.

The suggestively named TrimTheFat is a lightweight application that can help you regain disk space on your Mac system by removing unnecessary executable code from binary files that support multiple architectures. You can use this tool if you are running out of disk space and you don't want to remove any of your installed programs.

There are two modes in which you can use the TrimTheFat. You can either drag-and-drop the desired applications directly to the icon of this utility and it will automatically remove the excess code, notify you of the outcome and silently close or you can launch this program and drag the items you want to trim to the drop box. No matter which mode you choose, the entire process is performed very fast and, due to the friendly and intuitive interface that TrimTheFat comes with, it is very simple.

Other than that, after the trimming process is completed, this tool will create a newly trimmed application, by default, but you can easily change that and choose to trim the program in place by entering the "Preferences" menu.

Overall, if you are looking for an easy-to-use Mac application that can help you regain some of your disk space without having to uninstall any program you might have installed on your system, then you might want to give the lightweight TrimTheFat a chance.
