Editors' Review

BlueHarvest for Mac cleans up the unnecessary OS X files on your computer, freeing up valuable disk space. The app suffers from rigid features and problematic deactivation, making it quite frustrating at times.

BlueHarvest for Mac works by automatically removing stray and useless Mac OS X files from hard drives and other disks connected to your computer, including network drives and non-Mac disks. You can also manually perform clean-ups by right-clicking the drive icons and selecting the appropriate option, but the true power of the app lies in its automation. Before a clean-up, you can choose which disks to leave alone, as well as specify how the app should treat each disk. It's worth keeping in mind that the app attempts to access all the other network computers, as well, in addition to your own, something you might not actually want. The problem with this app, however, is not its functionality, but its deactivation. When we tried to stop it once it was up and running, our test machine locked up and failed to respond for a couple of minutes. You do need to be careful, though, and make sure you use this application with files that don't rely on data stored in AppleDouble files as they might become unusable.

Despite its limited customization and deactivation difficulties, BlueHarvest for Mac does clean disk drives of useless files. We have to give it credit for that, but the ability to cancel the operation without problems would be a welcome addition and make it even more useful.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of BlueHarvest for Mac 5.5.6.
