Remove unwanted files when uninstalling apps.

Overview

iTrash is an uninstall utility that uses a special search algorithm (Levenshtein Distance algorithm) to find all related files and deletes them when asked.

Applications distribute several files throughout your system storage devices. Deleting an application itself is mostly not enough and will leave several files untouched.

Features:
  • Simple drag-and-drop
  • Enabled 'Put Back' feature in trash (OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard only)
  • QuickLook support (OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard only)
  • Ghost Mode: Background mode. Drop something into the trash and iTrash pops up. Works on all available volumes.
  • Expert mode: To find even more possible related files.
  • Application lister: shows all installed applications on all volumes (not just the Applications Folder)
  • Finds visible and hidden files.
  • Also removes Widgets and PrefPanes.
  • Scans inside folders for applications.
  • Protect default applications.
  • Protect custom applications and folders.
  • Protect related applications files (.plist, application support, ...)
  • Sparkplug to keep up-to-date.
  • Does not need Spotlight to be enabled.
  • Localized: English, Dutch, Polish, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Slovak, Turkish, Persian, and French.

Very good uninstaller, in fact it's by far the best. Sadly it doesn't work in macOS Catalina. It does find the files but when you ask to delete them, some files aren't deleted at all without any warning. Hope the devs does fix this in the near future.

This is a review of the Developer's Service, and a note to Macupdate. 5.0.2 had Ghost mode break this morning, and the dev gave me a beta to try which fixed the problem. Checking the site, while the info still says 5.0.2, the download, downloads the 5.0.3 version that fixes the problem. So, it appears it has been publicly released. thanks for the excellent service and response time.

I have been using this successfully for many many years and it always serves me well. Very useful app to delete unnecessary files when you delete an app.

Has always been a faithful software for deleting all those bits and pieces left by deleted applications and now with the advent of Catalina it still remains the most trusted software for this purpose. I eagerly paid the small fee to upgrade to version 4 and have never been more pleased to do so. Thanks. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Version 5.0 is out now that says it is compatible with Catalina. It was a 4 Euro upgrade to the old version. After upgrading it is still not 100% compatible with Catalina. Ghost mode will not stay enabled after closing the program. And it took a complete uninstall and reinstall before the registration would stick. Hopefully they can put out a true Catalina compatible update quick.

We are aware of the problem when running macOS 10.15 and are working on a solution. The problem is that macOS 10.15 has built in more safeguards to protect some files. As a result, we need to implement a different way of effectively erasing files on user request. We try to have a new major version ready when macOS 10.15 is available.

In my expirience Itrash always finds more files compared to Appcleaner. I ran them both for some time but now only use Itrash in favor of Appcleaner.

I just noticed this developer's website doesn't support https. I'm sorry, but I am not purchasing an app from someone who doesn't have a secure website in an age where 99.9% of the sites are secure.
