PrefsOverload for Mac5.3.1

Remove damaged/old/unused preference files.

What is PrefsOverload for Mac

PrefsOverload is a full-featured tool for managing the Preferences Folder, which contains your various "Preference Files". Preference Files are those files in which applications store their settings and other information. After System 7, all these files have been enclosed in the "Preferences Folder". Preferences are important files, but sometimes they can turn out to be completely unnecessary. This can occur, for example, when their mother application doesn't exist--or no longer exists--on your computer. Over time the Preferences Folder will slowly grow and may become filled with files created by trashed demo applications, or applications used for a short time only or not used at all. The trouble is that all these unused or unusable files still continue to take up valuable disk space.

What's new in PrefsOverload

Version 5.3.1 adds the following:
  • Fixed a bug that prevented folder exclusion from working correctly
  • Minor interface changes and improvements

I tried it and it is a useless piece of software. It flagged useful preferences that my computer needed. In short, it is better for you to just open your preferences folder and delete the stuff yourself

This product grew up during years and now is simply great. Of course it is not for newbies...

This beta finally works out just fine on my Mac. I do like the product for its speediness (although it appears to be slower than than version 2.0) and easiness of use. The new features are really great such as determining what preferences may be considered damaged.
