Tidy Up 5
Clean up your Mac’s files. FROM US$28.99 HYPERBOLICSOFTWARE.COM
Tidy Up 5 aims to keep your Mac clear of duplicate and unnecessary files by finding such files and making them easier to delete. It does so from a gorgeous interface, with smoothly animated transitions, and honest information about why a search is taking time. There are two modes: Simple image search finds pictures that are identical; in Advanced mode you can hone in on date, location, even camera used. Searches are quite quick. When done, Tidy Up provides detailed suggestions for removal, showing the path to each file with previews.
The problem isn’t what it does, but the damage you could do with it. It doesn’t remove duplicate images in Photos, but marks them for later removal. It will happily remove files from Time Machine backups, which can make them permanently unusable, and it can wreak havoc on apps too. It’s a great housekeeping tool, but use with caution!
