AppCleaner Tip

AppCleaner

AppCleaner is a great tool on the Mac. It helps you remove and clean up app files. As great as it is you have to keep an eye on what it’s going to delete.

In the image above you can see its trying to nuke my Cookies folder when I was trying to delete the Kies app.

My advice is delete 1 app at a time and carefully have a look at that list before you press that delete button.

Cleanup Old Time Machine Backups

Time Machine filled up my external drive after about 10 months of use. Its nice to know you can go all that way back but I needed some space for my other files.

I found a way to delete old backups but I had to do it one at a time. Not very magical is it?

My solution was to just start dumping my other files on the drive. So when Time Machine started backing up since it didn’t have enough space it just starting deleting old backups automatically!
