Editors' Review

+
Mac OS X's Unix subsystem comes with a maintenance regimen that is scheduled to start in the middle of the night or when your computer is fast asleep. But what if you always turn your computer off, preventing a scheduled tune-up? Meet MacJanitor, an app that makes it handy to run these tasks anytime you like.

The interface is simple and clearly laid out. You can view and run daily, weekly, and monthly cleanups by clicking a button and then checking the results in the console window. The program usually runs quickly, but can take significantly longer if your system is in disarray.

Although MacJanitor is a one-trick pony, it performs its sole task with ease. A more extensive feature set would be a welcome addition, though. We highly recommend this program for laptop owners or energy-conscious users who shut down their computers frequently.

"Unfortunately, I could not get it to work for me."

July 14, 2009  |  By Ramiahsubramanian

 |  Version: MacJanitor 1.2.1

Pros

No comment

Cons

Since I could not get it to work, I should not rate it.

Summary

The star rating is incorrect but I am not able to submit my comment without the stars! My only intention for rating is to make the product designer aware of the problem I am having. It is probably my lack of technical knowledge rather than MacJanitor that is the problem.

"Corrupted OS X"

June 23, 2007  |  By huntertop

 |  Version: MacJanitor 1.2.1

Pros

Nothing. Install at your own risk.

Cons

While you can never really be 100% certain why an OS became corrupt, the timing is just too much for me to discount. This corrupted/killed a 10 week old version of OSX.

"Does everything it's supposed to, and it's free."

January 11, 2004  |  By winword10

 |  Version: MacJanitor 1.2.1

Summary

Running the scripts in this program really sped up my iMac and its laggy ways. It also put an end to the lockups that i was experiencing nightly. If you don't run your Mac 24/7, get this ASAP ;-)

"Very useful FREE utility"

September 24, 2003

 |  Version: MacJanitor 1.2.1

Summary

While I use Cocktail for most of my system backend maintenance, MacJanitor does a good job of consolidating much of the "Pilot" features of Cocktail into one uncluttered interface.
