Not working on my Mac SL 10.6.4 with my USB-Memorycard of my BlackBerry.
It did nothing. So i fixed this bug "((i as string) & ":")" and then at least after running it says: "Disk xy has been cleaned and ejected".

But when i look with the Filemanager of my phone into the file system there are still ".Spotlight-V100" and ".Trashes" folders.

So this program needs a bugfix for Snow Leopard i guess, and then it would be a nice useful application.

Thanks for reporting the bug. I have reviewed the code and the issue should have been fixed in version 1.3.
Furthermore, some lion specific folders are removed as well.

Fails to clean my USB Drives:
USB drives were loaded on my 12" G4 PowerBook (OSX 10.5.8), processed, and then checked on my wifes HP Pavillion (OS Win Vista) laptop

I tried this because my Hidden Cleaner 1.2.1 leaves a ". " file behind on my USB drives.

CUMND left behind trashes and more --- no difference between a "cleaned" stick and one that was not cleaned.

This one announces completion by voice and ejects when it is done ---to bad it doesn't clean. It has a very nice/impressive UI.

I'll stick with Hidden Cleaner for now, and watch for updates to this.

Pros:

It can run on 10.2+


Cons:

Non-existant GUI
No ability to select folders instead of entire drives.
No customization at all.


There are other programs out there that do a much better job, with more than just a box with an OK/cancel button on it.

To get ejection and notification to work in version 1.2, I had to change "if (i as string) is in diskPaths then" to "if ((i as string) & ":") is in diskPaths then".
