In today’s world we are familiar with a number of operating systems including Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, and others but one of the basic thing that remains common with all of them is of unwanted files. This would include unwanted applications, caches, log files etc that not only occupy an appreciable amount of space on your computer but also make it way too slow.
Talking about the Mac in specific, which is said to be a much better performing OS than Windows, there are many programs available for cleaning it up and getting added into the list is the latest CleanGenius Pro. As the name suggests it is the pro version of the CleanGenius Free utility with added features and most interestingly this $2.99 app is available for free on Mac Store for a limited period.
As you can see the interface is quite nice and clean and would not find any difficulty while getting used to it. On the left you have a number of sections like My Mac, System Caches, User Caches, System Logs, User Logs, User Trash and User Download. Then there is a separate section as Utilities where you have Uninstall Applications and Free Space Monitor sections.
Firstly under the My Mac section you can have a brief yet useful information about your system’s specifications like the processor, memory, hostname, model, vendor, total space available and free etc.
Under system caches you have a log of system caches along with additional details like the location and size. Similarly you have user caches as well as system and user logs just below the same. So you can keep an eye on the generate caches and logs that are occupying space on your computer. To clean these logs and caches you can check on the corresponding boxes and then press Clean at the bottom. If you want to clean the downloads and trash folders as well, check the boxes against them and then hit clean.
Under uninstall applications you have a list of all the installed applications along with the date on which they were installed and version. To uninstall an app just select the same using the corresponding box and hit uninstall at the bottom.
Under the Free Space Monitor section you can track the available free space on your hard drives, flash drives and even the shared documents.
If you want a quick look at the available space or open the main window for CleanGenius Pro, you can do it from the finder as shown in the image below. The app also has a feature of settings alarms when your disk space exceeds a particular limit set by you.
