Update 4.2.0 “Bradley Spence”

Released on December 20, 2018

This release is aimed at saving storage space. Thanks to your feedback, and our user Bradley Spence in particular, we’ve picked a few more junk locations previously untouched by CleanMyMac X. But we are far from stopping here, though. And while we are busy coding new features, see the goodies delivered with this update.

Mail Attachments go beyond Mail

Not everyone uses the default Mail app. That’s why, we’ve trained CleanMyMac X to additionally remove Mail Attachments from your Outlook and Spark apps.

Both are highly popular on the Mac platform and could potentially generate gigabytes’ worth of junk.

Junk on external drives eliminated

Many of you have requested this functionality — and here you are. Over time, external drives have a tendency to degrade into our remote trash bins. Now you can filter out all the outdated junk they contain.

You’ll find external drives cleanup as part of Large & Old files module. There you can see how much free space is left on the drive or USB and take actions accordingly.

Update 4.3.0 “Michael Lee”

Released on March 11th, 2019

This release is dedicated to Michael Lee, our user who gave us an idea to create an entirely new CleanMyMac X module. We’ve started designing a new tool for hunting down room wasters on your Mac and called it Space Lens. Even though the new feature is in beta, you can already start using it — it’s extremely helpful and cosmically beautiful. See for yourself.

Update 4.4.0 “Space Lens”

Released on April 11, 2019

The entirely new Space Lens module comes out of beta. We’ve done our best to perfect it, and your feedback helped us a lot. Now it’s easier than ever to reveal space hoggers on your Mac and remove them for good. Can’t wait for you to try it out!

Visualize your disk space

Build your storage map and detect the biggest space wasters. These include unneeded applications, downloads, pictures, podcasts, system files, and whatnot. Review the uncovered files and remove the ones you don’t want to store anymore.

Space Lens can analyze both Mac’s internal and external drives.

Quickly decide what to remove

You don’t have to check the size of what you’re considering to delete. Space Lens will display the size of all your files and folders, so you can detect the big baddies at a glance. Just select the files you no longer need and click Remove.

We have to say that interacting with the storage map is strangely satisfying, no wonder you’ll be glued to the screen!
