Spring is coming, and the urge to tidy up follows close behind. Of course, our computers can get just as cluttered as our homes. We use all kinds of cleaning supplies for tidying up our homes easily and effectively. It’s also a good idea to get the right tools for cleaning your Mac.
Archives are a great way to compress and bundle all sorts of files. Whether massive applications or complex media projects, to get at the contents of an archive you typically must unarchive the whole thing. Depending on the type of archive, you might need special software. And depending on who sent it, you might not trust the files in the archive. Like a vampire, some malware requires you invite it into your machine.

Your Mac is a complex machine. That means there are a lot of ways it can get clogged up. Whether it’s junk files or overused application memory, keeping a clean Mac is a lot like keeping a clean house. A little bit of regular tidying goes a long way.
That’s what Dr. Cleaner is. A little cleaning kit stored away for when you need it.

There’s nothing good about a hard drive going bad. Or any drive, for that matter. It’s just as inconvenient to the photographer or videographer to have a corrupted SD card or cartridge as it is for a writer or graphic designer to lose their local drive. At least with computers, many people are in some habit of regularly backing up. But if your bad drive also happens to host your operating system, this headache becomes a migraine.
Sometimes there’s no way around it: Without help, your important data could be lost. A utility like Data Rescue, though, gives you a number of ways to recover.
Despite the clean lines and sleek exteriors of our Macs, the insides often look like a real mess. Cluttered photo libraries; old web caches; broken extensions; unused configuration files — the list of data that can gum up our Macs is long. That makes staying on top of it all nearly impossible, unless you’ve got time and energy to spare.
