To get the most out of your Mac, you should occasionally purge all the unwanted files that can negatively affect your system’s speed and efficiency. It’s crucial maintenance, but manually deleting all the unnecessary files can be a drag — especially if you waste a lot of time searching for instructions or reading out-of-date tips.

Forget that. Free Mac app Tweak and Tuneup is a suite of speedy tools that scan your Apple computer, quickly locating and deleting junk files to free up loads of disk space and restore your machine’s full speed and power.

Tweak and Tuneup’s easy-to-use tools

Tweak and Tuneup’s powerful tools will enhance the performance of any Mac. They are easy to use: Simply click on any of these tools and let Tweak and Tuneup do all the work.

Cleaning: Tweak and Tuneup’s One-Click cleaning feature gets rid of system and user cache files, log files, trash files and partially downloaded files (which can pop up if you lose your internet connection during a download or some bug interferes with the process). You could recover gigabytes of invaluable disk space on your Mac in seconds, with just a single click.

Optimization: In addition to showing all your duplicate files (with an option to remove whatever you don’t need), the app automatically detects files and folders that waste space. You won’t have to spend valuable time locating those junk files on your own, and Tweak and Tuneup helps safeguard against collecting such useless data in the future. You can also safely uninstall any apps you don’t need, along with all their associated files, with a simple drag and drop.

Manual cleaning: You don’t have to clean your Mac by hand, but you can. Tweak and Tuneup includes three useful manual-cleaning tools that can help you preserve your internet privacy, scrub miscellaneous data and get rid of large files that occupy excessive amounts of disk space.

Security: Tweak and Tuneup lets you “shred” your private data securely. The built-in shredder deletes files and folders permanently and makes them unrecoverable.

Tweak and Tuneup cleans up your Mac

Tweak and Tuneup works with OS X 10.6 or later and it’s totally free for anyone who wants to boost their Mac’s performance by clearing out the cruft. With its user-friendly interface and dead-simple cleaning tools, the app will get your Mac back in top shape quickly. No manual effort is required to free up precious disk space on your computer’s drive.

Download Tweak and Tuneup for free from the Mac App Store.
