Not really a problem, just want to keep the system clean,Unless you have some kind of problem there is nothing to "clean up".
That doesn’t mean anything. There is nothing you need to do. The computer runs its own housekeeping chores daily, weekly, and monthly. You don’t have to do anything, nor is there any reason to believe the operating system needs third party help taking care of itself.Not really a problem, just want to keep the system clean
Pretty much what I'm doing nowIf you're worried about storage limits, why not just get an external drive? I'd keep all files on the external and apps on the internal. Unless it's a large file that you need to work on, in which case I'd keep it on the internal or just move it, when needed.
Thank you,Onyx is the only tool I find to be of any use, and I only use it once a year at most.
Tks Mate,Forget all this and enjoy your iMac Gary.
To sum up, when I started on Macs in 1990, as my IT guru said at that time "Get a Mac. They are more idiot proof'!!
thank youOnyX, is free and has weekly or monthly scripts to clean temporary files or rebuild indexes.
If you store files on an external hard drive get a second drive to clone it as a backup in case one fails (for example a thunderstorm occurs and the power goes off). Better to spend some money and not losing your precious work
Tks for the heads-upFrom personal experience....no!
I had the program on my OLD OLD Snow Leopard OS, it seemed to work ok (who knows though) Once I upgraded to Yosemite and used the program, this program deleted essential files that made the Mac operate! Yeah...it "cleaned" it alright, not in a good way
I had to do a complete restore from backup to get the Mac running again. So never again with that program.
Hell no!Seconded. A HARD NO
This is a better suggestion:
