I wouldn't be so quick to clean out foreign languages from System files anymore. Certainly not since Mavericks. Long-time Mac user and cleaner of anything, but ....Just saying.

further investigating - seems the newly-added option to clean out the iPhoto Trash is the problem, at least for me.

(a) I don't use iPhoto so there is no iPhoto Trash

(b) the option to delete the iPhoto Trash appears locked - I can't uncheck the option

(c) DD searches in vain for my non-existent iPhoto Trash, opens iPhoto while searching, and hangs while searching but then eventually crashes big time (uncaught exceptionn invalid argument etc)

have removed it and won't be using it again unless someone else tests it and finds that it works (and that you can uncheck the option re iTunes Trash).

Hi Eric,

I'm sorry that the iPhoto trash cleanup is causing an issue. I have resolved it and submitted the fix to Apple for review. I've requested an expedited review so you (and the other customers having this issue) can get the update ASAP.

Thanks,

- Matt

Good news, Disk Diet 4.2 has been approved and it resolves the issues related to cleaning the iPhoto trash. It's available now as a free update in the Mac App Store.

Please feel free to email me anytime if you have any issues or questions about the new version.

I have a query re Adobe software and this app. If you have used other language-stripping apps, you know that if you strip Adobe apps of un-used languages, they cease to work (esp Acrobat) and require a re-install. Does this app deal correctly with Adobe CS software?

If you have Adobe CS 5.5 or CS 6 on your Mac and have run this app, do the CS apps still work?

This would be a strong point in its favour.

Bought it this morning after discussions with dev. Additional features coming in next version.

I have used other apps (Monolingual and Xslimmer) but DD found anouther 400MB on my MB Air to remove in the form of languages I don't use.

App delivers for great price, can recommend based on my own usage/experience.

I did not test this because there is no trial version. But looking into this it doesn't offer any additional features not found in free alternatives.

Really? You spent more in time writing that complaint than it would have cost to purchase it.

Can't argue with the price. Most of this can be done for free, but $2 is about as close to free as one can get...

What baffles me is that: I now have four pieces of software that include the ability to eradicate non-English software. I run these applications regularly, as I am using an SSD main drive and it is too small and must be kept lean until I can afford a larger one. These applications, including this one, keep telling me I have loads of non-English software. This is simple not possible, at least logically it makes no sense to me.

Does this non-English software regenerate itself? Can someone suggest how this unwanted software can be kept off my computer?

FYI, I download iCleanLanguage after seeing it posted above. It claimed (immediately after I ran Disk Diet) that my computer had 1,666 foreign language files.

I now have 5 utilities to clean-up language files and none seem to work.

@Dthdunn: Every time you update an application, framework, or the system, those extra language resources get put right back, so this kind of utility is something you have to use routinely.

I am impressed. I've been able to delete 11.9GB from my Mac. The application is simple, but effective. Worth the $0.99 the developer charges for it.
