Has anyone tried this on Mavericks? Any issues? This is so effective on all my operating systems...SL, Lion and ML.

In as much testing as I've done (which isn't really all that thorough), Yasu has performed well with Mavericks. I've also not had any issues reported by Mavericks users. It should be safe -- along with standard disclaimer...

I downloaded and ran YASU 2.8.0 for my iBook G4 Power PC OSX 10.5.8 and it deleted all of my pictures and videos. The recommendator said that that was not supposed to happen, l but it did!

Im not sure if this was Yasu's fault or a coincidence, but after running Yasu in 10.8 I had a very rough time restarting.
Mac mini was rebooting but screen was dark.
Had to reset PRAM and hit option key and select my HD to restart.
As I said it may not be Yasu's fault but then again...

Please update to version 2.8.1. That solves this issue.

Re Yasu 2.8: This macupdate page claims that the sytem requirements are PPC/Intel 10.4 or later, but when I downloaded 2.8 it is an Intel-only binary.

I hope this gets fixed, because Yasu is a great little tool.

(Didn't mean to give this 4.5 stars on "Ease of Use", but MacUpdate's star-giving interface locked up and I couldn't change it.)

Still the best all-around utility. Use it to shut down, then run Applejack at startup. Problems gone, baby! 10.8 is in beta, pal -- your poor review is not relevant.

The main download link seems to be okay (tried it myself), but yes, the link for version 1.0.3 for Jaguar/Panther is wrong. Since there's no way to change that via the app listing page, here's the correct link for Yasu 1.0.3:

Yasu was originally created with System Administrators who service large groups of workstations in mind, Yasu (Yet Another System Utility) was made to do a specific group of maintenance tasks quickly within a few clicks, rather than needing to endlessly type shell script commands in the Terminal application.

Yasu allows system administrators, as well as the average user, to conveniently run various system level Unix shell scripts in order to perform maintenance routines and clear the many cache files used by OS X. Yasu was designed to be a simple, first line of attack for a workstation that has started "acting up." More often than not, a thorough purge of the cache files of a Mac will bring its behavior back into line.
