Cleans hidden files from MP3 players, USB sticks, and local folders.

Overview

HiM (Hidden Cleaner iMproved) is a simple drag-and-drop utility that cleans and ejects USB devices like MP3 players, USB sticks... (and also local folders). Simply drag folders or removable devices into the main window or the application icon, and HiM will perform all the cleaning operations and (eventually) ejects the device.. It deletes the hidden files OS X creates like .DS_Store, etc. HiM is an improvement of Hidden Cleaner, on which is inspired, and comes also with a simple GUI. You can even customize the file list that you want to delete.

What's new in HiM

Fixed:
  • Not-ejecting-on-drag bug

Hi all I have been using this app for years on macOS High Sierra and found it didn't work with macOS Mojave BUT I found out why with info from another app. To allow HiM to work in Mojave (must have something to do with Mojave's Security) grant HiM "Full Disk Access" under  System Preferences> Security and Privacy> Privacy> +Full Disk Access. If you apply this in Mojave it should work as normal without any problem, I have done it and tested it and it works like it does in High Sierra. Hope this helps, it did with mine.

The website doesn't feature HiM any more, luckily it's still available here! :-) Thanks MU! (for those who still don't have it ;-) )

I've tried a bunch of apps like this one and this is the easiest to use amongst the free ones.
I keep it in the Dock and drag the USB key on its icon. Done.
And of course: why pay for another app when this one does it perfectly and for free?

Fantastic app! I'm not one who feels all that comfortable/confident knoodling around under the OS X hood, but I do remember buying and keeping Tinker Tool System primarily for removing all the junk-detrius OS X files on thumb drives I'd also use with Windows machines. This app, for me, has been super simple, easy-peasey to install and use. One minor disappointment was in visiting the Macupdate-supplied vendor link I was unable to find a 'donate' link.

Sorry, doesn't work for me: if I drag the USB Key on the app icon nothing happens. It seems to work only if I launch Him clicking' on it, wait 'till the app is full open and then drag the USB key on the main window... Too many steps. With good-old-Hidden-Cleaner I directly drag the USB Key on the app icon and it cleans and ejects the drive with no hassle (also on Yosemite!).

Why can't it clean from a local folder as well? Seems like it'd be easy enough to add :( I look forward to an update that includes that ability!

Nothing happens.
The log has this in it, but it only appears once, not for each time I've tried a folder drop.
"ARGV error. dir-path missing. Try 'dcl --help' ."

Happy to debug this via email, there was no contact information on the website though :(
