Editors' Review

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac helps you reclaim space on your computer by deleting duplicate and unused files. Through the app's intuitive interface, you can quickly access all features and have your computer running more smoothly in no time.

Pros

Three functions: To help you free up as much memory as possible and stay organized, this app completes three separate but complementary functions. It scans for unused or obsolete files that can be deleted, it identifies duplicate files, and it lets you manage your desktop, so you can be sure all files are in the proper place.

Clear interface: The first time you use it, the app walks you through the scanning process and identifies key items on the interface that will be helpful as you work through the program. And because the interface is so well laid out, users of all experience levels will have no trouble finding their way around.

Duplicate analysis: In order to find duplicate files, this app uses a bit-by-bit analysis process. This method produces much more accurate results than the method used by many other programs of using date and time stamp analysis, and file description.

Cons

Limited trial function: The trial version of this app can only complete the preliminary steps of each function. You get to see what each phase of the scanning process looks like, but to get any real functionality out of the program, you'll have to pay $29.99 for an unrestricted license.

Bottom Line

Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac is a smooth and powerful program that effectively streamlines the process of identifying and removing unnecessary files from your computer. It's definitely worth checking out even if you think your machine is pretty well organized. You may be surprised by what the scans turn up.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac 10.8.3

"Slow Down Computer!"

May 02, 2014  |  By hansolo09

 |  Version: Intego Washing Machine 2014 10.8.3

Pros

Nice Interface!

Cons

Resource Hog
Too expensive

Summary

I bought their bundle and most the products are crap. It makes you install a completely different software just to receive updates. When it is scanning it takes up all my resources and crashes all the time. For the money I would not buy this. I didn't know about AVG until after I purchased it and it is free. So far no issue with AVG. The firewall is horrible, and Family Protector is 100% useless.

"New release WAY faster"

December 03, 2013  |  By aframpkin

 |  Version: Intego Washing Machine 2014 10.8.1

Pros

They just released a new version that finds dups way faster and allows me to target the system at specific directories. Also seemed to add a shredder for deletions. Using it slows down the deletion process, price you pay for more secure deletes.

Cons

Still no cookie management. Maybe next release?

Summary

Very slick product made even better. Keep adding stuff!

"Slick product"

October 19, 2013  |  By aframpkin

 |  Version: Intego Washing Machine 2014 10.8

Pros

Very easy to use, slick interface. First time I used it it cleaned up about 4 gig of junk. I am still working through all my duplicates.

Love the dock organizer.

Cons

Find dups is a little slow.

Summary

Worth the 29 bucks.

Updated on Oct 19, 2013

Ran Washingmachine against two other duplicate file finders. Washingmachine seems to be finding duplicate files the other two aren't. Not sure what the difference is but the additional dups are actually duplicates. Could explain why it takes longer.
