"'Erase Free Space' Erased 25 GBs of disc space!"
Version: CCleaner 1.00.093
The cleaner worked just as well on my OS X 6.8 Core 2 Duo Mini as it does on Windows machines, giving me back about 3 GBs of disc space.
Erasing Free Space erased over 25 GBs of disk space. Started with a little over 55 GBs and stopped it from running when it got down to only 29.34 GBs of free space left.
No idea where it went.
Nothing in support about this. No way to contact them without using the wrong form (which I did) or buying the product per their instructions to "click on the icon below" which was a 'Buy' button.
No idea how I'll get this space back.
Pretty scary little utility when erasing free space.This was put in a review of the Mac version. How it got to windows is beyond me just as the missing free space is.
No options in Menu bar.
Takes away free space.
Cleans caches, etcetera just fine but I won't be trying it again until they can explain where the free space went and how to retrieve it.
It made a backup file of some sort but there is no documentation about that that I could find.

Updated on Jan 18, 2012Glitch on cnet is how. Now I'm back on the Mac software page.
Updated on May 12, 2012Thanks eightclicks.
I talked to a Windows user friend that told me to let it run. It does that with disc space until it's done. Then it's freed up.
Nice if they'd have put that notice somewhere. If they did, I missed it.
"Won't install on my Powerbook..."
Version: CCleaner 1.00.077
I love CCleaner on my Windows PCs but I can't get it to install and run on my PowerPC Mac to save my life.
I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on my Powerbook. CNET's info says it's for PowerPC Macs running OSX 10.5 but it won't.
I wrote Piraform about my problems but never got an answer from them. I think their attitude must be, "you ain't runnin' a Mac unless you've got an Intel processor and OSX 10.6 and above." I'll keep waiting and maybe they will kick loose with a version especially for guys like me
"Was easy download directly from their website for Info."
Version: CCleaner 1.00.052
Is good it help me to clean up a lot of stuff i wasn't able before
Is ok, only sometimes there is some error reporting after cleaning up still showing the same files or else that suppose being already remove.
I find the software very useful, just need a little fix on "files cleaned or removed" information, other than that is good I recommend it.
"Been looking for something like this."
Version: CCleaner 1.00.052
Works just fine, I've been wanting a program like this and I love it on windows. Get's the job done.
It's slow to clean-up, but I'm sure Piriform would enhance its performance once it goes above beta.
Cleans my mac so i'm happe.
"Not as good as the Windows version"
Version: CCleaner 1.00.027
Straight forward interface
Missing many features found in Windows Version
Onyx is considerably better
