    "Does what is says if you read the directions first"

    August 19, 2012  |   By arahaim


    FREE!! IF you read the directions first, and take the 5 minutes to get familiar with the control screens, it does what is says it will do -- on both Mac OS X and Windows 7. I cleaned out more than 450MB worth of junk (each) on three separate machines; the oldest a 4.75 yr old Mac Book Pro. Even my three week old Mac Book Pro was faster after I did all the initial set up and data transfers.

    Now I run the program every day on my laptop before shutting down for the night; and on my wife's at least once a week.


    The directions are not the best, and I almost deleted some items that were program required. BEFORE you delete anything the first time, scroll through all the file names.

    Better to have to do it a few times than have to re-install a needed program.


    Worth the time and did I mention, it's FREE!!!
