Disk Doctor scans your Mac, then removes unwanted files to reclaim much-needed space on your hard drive. With a straightforward interface and a nice set of features, Disk Doctor makes cleaning up your Mac's memory as simple as possible.

Pros

Clear interface: Disk Doctor's intuitive interface clearly shows all available options. Once you've run a scan, you'll see the results sorted into categories that you can select or deselect as you advance to the cleaning stage.

Full preview: Some categories you may be comfortable deleting sight unseen, but others you may want to peek at first. This app lets you preview a list of all items in each category before you decide whether or not to include that category in the cleaning process.

Cons

No individual selection: While it is nice to be able to view the contents of categories, it would be nicer if you could deselect individual items within these categories. Unfortunately, that option is not offered in the current version of Disk Doctor. The only thing you can do is manually move an item to another file or folder and then run the program again, which is a significant number of extra steps.

Bottom Line

Disk Doctor is a convenient tool to have on hand when you need to increase the amount of free space on your hard drive. It presents your options clearly, making it useful for users of all experience levels, and it's only $2.99 in the App Store.

Developer's Description

Free up tons of disk space with Disk Doctor by removing gigabytes of cached and unneeded files from your hard drive.

With one press of a button, Disk Doctor can empty the following:

- Applications Caches:
Caches speed up your apps. However, some apps don't delete their caches, leading to many unused files building up on your disk.

- Application Logs:
Some of your applications automatically create log files that can end up becoming quite large.

- Language Packs:
Some applications come with resources for other languages (eg. Spanish, French, German). These resources take up space on your disk. Choose what languages you want to remove.

- Mail Downloads Folder:
Mail attachments get saved to your hard drive when they are opened. Please take a look in this folder before deciding whether you want to empty it.

- Downloads Folder:
The downloads folder can become very large as all your downloads build up here. Please view the folder before deciding to empty it.

- Trash Can:
Empty your trash can to prevent unneeded files taking up space.
