You are here:

System Cleanup

After you start a Scan, CleanMyMac uses a sophisticated algorithm to determine what files may be safely removed automatically, so you shouldn’t worry about system stability.
What you get after the scan is a visual representation of items that can be instantly removed with no harm:

In order to review the particular stuff you are about to remove, just click ‘Detailed Results’ to see the items found among these groups:

User Cache Files
Originally intended to improve launch times; cache files of your applications ultimately accumulate and result in improper functioning or overall performance drop.

System Cache Files
System applications generate and keep a lot of cache files, which ultimately result in larger startup times, overall performance drop and sometimes improper functioning.

User Log Files
The activity of your applications is constantly being captured into numerous log files, which start using quite a lot of space after some time, but are rather useless, especially if they are old.

System Log Files
The activity of your system applications and services is being captured into numerous logs, which may be helpful for debugging purposes only and can be removed without a second thought.

Broken Preferences
Application preference files can get corrupted for several reasons and this leads to improper behavior or inability to launch related apps later. Luckily, such problems can be easily avoided.

Broken Login Items
In some cases, after an application or a service gets removed, a broken link to it remains among your Login Items. This problem can be easily resolved with CleanMyMac.

iOS Software Updates
After your iOS devices update using ordinary cable sync, nearly all the update supporting data remains on your Mac and becomes entirely useless after the update is completed.

iOS Photo Cache
After you sync photos with any of your iOS devices; this operation leaves a certain amount of photo cache on your Mac. This data only wastes space after the sync is done.

Universal Binaries
Developers usually compile their apps to support several Mac architectures, which means putting in twice and sometimes four times the code. However, your particular Mac only needs one copy.

Development Junk
Applications usually create some supporting files on your system while they are being installed or configured and these files become useless afterwards. Remove them harmlessly.

Language Files
You can easily remove application localization that are of no use for you, thus saving a significant amount of disk space.

Clicking the main Clean button will remove all the unneeded items and free up a significant amount of space.
