Then disk drives became cheap and we saved every file and never deleted anything. Then along came more expensive and much smaller SSD storage for our MacBooks and Macs, and we’re back to pruning files again. If that’s a problem for you, put your Mac on a disk diet with Disk Diet.
Bytes, Not Calories
Apple’s most popular Macs come with SSD storage these days, and that means storage has gone from cheap to expensive, from massive to limited.
Disk Diet is a Mac app for SSD storage (but it works with all Macs with disk drive devices, of course) that squeezes more free storage with just a click.
Think of Disk Diet as a cleanup app which knows where to find space that’s being used by doesn’t need to be used.
Our Macs are loaded with cache files, temporary files, log files, trash files, and leftover files that are not really needed but take up space anyway.
The longer you’ve been running your Mac the more of those files exist, and Disk Diet finds them, deletes them. A quick scan of your Mac’s disk dishes the details, ready for delete.
Those built-in logs and cache files can take up lots of space, but OS X also harbors files which most Mac users don’t need.
For example, OS X has a large number of language files. If you don’t need Dutch or German or Klingon, Disk Diet can delete them, which gives you additional space.
Some Mac apps have developer folders which contain un-needed information. Disk Diet can find those, too. If your Mac is running low on storage space, Disk Diet is a quick, reliable, and simple way to find a few extra gigabytes of space with little more than a few clicks. This is an that deserves the hundreds of four and five star reviews.
