iTunes & Photos: Keep the media, shred the junk

iTunes and Photos store gigabytes of files other than your media, like outdated device backups, broken downloads, photo cache. Massive packs of these files are created each time you play music or open images. Photo cache alone may waste a few gigabytes. Cleaning these items manually is tough and takes time but they are easy to clean up with CleanMyMac X.

Leave old documents versions in the past

Some apps like Sketch or Photoshop keep cached copies of intermediate project revisions. Think of hundreds small iterations cloned many times over. CleanMyMac X can delete them so you only keep the original document and its final version stored on drive. This may additionally free up several gigabytes of space. Don’t worry, you can always review what you are deleting beforehand.

Mail is a lot heavier than it looks

Each and every attachment you receive in Mail, from PDFs to signatures, get saved to your Mac. Know what that amounts to? A lot. Plus, if you want to manually clean out those gigabytes of attachments, you’d have to crawl through your entire mailbox searching for every single paper clip. Save yourself the trouble — CleanMyMac X is happy to take care of it for you.
