Overview of Clean Junk

When you are using your Mac, Mac OS will automatically create and store certain temporary information on your system drive. As a result, your system drive will fill up with data that it doesn't need and slow your Mac down over time.

The Clean Junk feature of iBoysoft DiskGeeker is designed to scan the system drive usually labelled as Macintosh HD, Macintosh HD - Data, macOS, or macOS - Data for redundant data. It can find information and files no longer needed in system cache, user logs, application cache, downloads, etc.

Files and folders will be listed with file name, modified date and size for users to select which files should be cleaned to free up the space of the system drive, improve Mac performance, and reduce the system crash risk.
