Like other reviewers here, I am wary of recommending this application because of the ping and curl requests it sends out. I have tried to contact the developer to ask why this is necessary on the basis that if I understood what was happening I would continue to use the app. I have never had a response so I use this app as little as possible, consider it to be seriously flawed and could not recommend it unless one had a pressing need for something of this type. I reckon that there is an opportunity here for a nice little app to clear Mac-specific files from removable media before ejecting. I constantly use media that will be used on Windows or other FAT formatted devices and find it frustrating to see these ‘hidden' files.

Finder Cleaner does exactly what it is supposed to. It is reliable but has to be used with caution - it does execute destructive file manipulations, that's what it is for. To all comments complainig about the app having caused troubles: RTFM! And, btw, you can disallow it to phone home for updates (with Little snitch, for example) and it works well nonetheless.

I used to used 1.8 and think it better than 1.9 because when I open 1.9 it always take sevaral time and not reapond often. So I have to force quick all time. I cannot back to use 1.8 because I didn't backup 1.8.dmg and no more to download ringht now. Very dissatisfy.

This looks like just the app I need, something to delete all those .trashes and .ds files on my USB thumb drive so that when I mount the drive in windows, half the files are not junk. It says that it will scan a folder or volume, delete all those pesky files and then eject the drive. When I launch the app and select my drive it gives me the option to select just a folder (the folder had 5 items, but FC reported deleting 40 .ds files), but it then looks like it deletes all the .ds and trashes file on the drive. When I click on eject nothing happens. The drive remains on my desktop. If I pull it out the system gives me an annoying warning not to do that, and when I mount the drive on my windows machine I see FinderCleaner has done absolutely nothing.

1.8 keeps giving me the error variable not defined so i cant use it either. it would be really useful if i could use it as my SE phone does get crappy .ds files and ._ mp3 files which cause my phone to play erratically. please fix this version. thanks Jan
