CleanMyDrive

2.1.1327 October 2018

Clean and eject external drives.

Overview

CleanMyDrive lets you maintain your removable drives as easy as never before with CleanMyDrive! It cleans up needless service junk generated by Windows or Mac OS (DS_Store, Thumbs.db, Spotlight, hidden trashes and so on). It also helps you to manage your external drives.

Main Features
  • Clean up drives from junk manually or automatically
  • Eject all external drives with one click
  • Access and eject your drives right from the main menu
  • Monitor free space on your drives
  • Works with external HDD, flash drives, DMG files and network volumes

How CleanMyDrive helps you in real life:

  • Cleans those annoying service files that your media player fails to play
  • Erases files from your drives, not just moves them to Trash like Finder
  • Removes thumbs.db and other Windows files that bring no value
  • Ejects all drives at once correctly when you hurry your Mac into sleep mode

What's new in CleanMyDrive

Version 2.1.13:
  • Enhanced compatibility with Mojave.
  • All known bugs and crashes fixed.

Requirements for CleanMyDrive

  • OS X 10.10.0 or later

Its not 100% clear exactly what this software does - I can understand why Resource Forks might not be needed anymore, but .DS_Store files are not what I would call "junk". Before I install this, I would be curious to hear from any users if it is possible to select the categories of "junk" so that I might delete Resource Forks but not the DS_Store files? Or does the software do a complete delete with no selection possible? Any experiences from others to clarify/expand on the software's activities would be welcomed.

It’s a decent app, but it needs to stop recommending me the rest of their products (that I already own and have installed mind you) after buying the in-app purchases.

When CleanMyDrive 2 is allowed to "Launch on system startup," which is its default setting, it somehow causes ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist to be mostly obliterated.

Ma se non l'hai capito perché metti una stella? Astieniti dal dare giudizi negativi.
Comunque: pulisce una chiavetta USB (o altro supporto formattato per Windows) da file che si vedono in un PC mentre in Mac sono invisibili.

I simply love this app. It's very unobtrusive, allows one to eject a drive without having to open finder, and cleans drives of files that are seen as "junk" by windows. Unfortunately, after a couple of months (and only by accident, when solving a problem using gfxCardStatus), I found out that this alone is responsible for a decrease in 20%+ of my Macbook Pro runtime. Why? Because once you click on it, it switches the discrete graphics card on, and never again switches it off. From then on, every app uses the discrete graphics card, consuming a LOT more power than needed. If you use it in a desktop computer (iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro), consider this review a FIVE STAR review. Otherwise, consider it a TWO star review. I can't imagine why would you use the discrete graphics card for such a simple app, much less when only the icon is on the menu bar. I'm currently not using it.

This is more a question for the Developer, but does anyone know if this was fixed in the recency-released CleanMyDrive 2 (2015 December 8)? I generally like the app and its setup, but remember this being an issue way back when I first started using it.

I've love to have all ignored drives (e.g. larger than x GB) not appear in the drop down menu on the menubar.

Nice and unobtrusive (other than the upsell to CleanMyMac). When I eject a drive I see some animation (?) moving from upper-left to the upper-right of my screen. It's too fast to see what it is but it looks like crap. This is as it's cleaning the .ds_store files from my drive. Other than that, it's perfect.
