CleanMyDrive Editor's Review

PC experts unanimously agree that using Macs tend to be a smoother and faster experience than running Windows based PCs but the Apple laptops and desktops also need maintenance and performance tweaking, occasionally. Regular web browsing, transfer of large chunks of data, temp file piling up - all these take a toll on performance of your Mac. While the Apple utilities offered in OS X can be adequate for some users, other may prefer using third party utilities for more control over the OS and computer. If you are looking for one such utility, try CleanMyDrive. Made by Ukrainian developer MacPaw, this is comprehensive software that offers much more than just junk cleanup.

Along with serving as a capable Mac Cleanup tool, CleanMyDrive works as a monitoring tool to clean disks automatically on unmount. It also lets you eject all connected drives with one click. It far exceeds capabilities of Finder for drive management. Installation gets over quickly and after that you will see a small icon in screen top at menu bar. It can be used on Macs with OS X 10.7 and later versions.

The app UI is sleek and easy to manage. It shows all mounted volumes including external disks, internal drives, network shares and optical discs. Owing to its big icons you can easily identify FireWire drives and internal drives separately. It also shows remaining free space in each mounted drive. After cleaning is done, you need to click a volume icon to access it in Finder. For the non-internal volumes, you will find an eject button. CleanMyDrive empties trash of a volume before ejecting it, which is a handy feature.

In the Preferences section, you will find an option to set the app to overlook volumes exceeding a size. When you use the app’s "Eject All" function, it unmounts all drives instantly and also sends your Mac to sleep mode. This is really handy when you need to put the lid of Macbook down and leave house in an emergency. You may set the app to start when the Mac is switched on. CleanMyDrive works really fast and you are unlikely to come across any hardware conflict issues.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, user friendly UI.
•    Excellent mounted disk management.
•    Decent junk cleanup feature.

Negative Points:
•    No support for Macs beyond OS X 10.7.

Conclusion:
CleanMyDrive is a useful and superb utility for Mac owners who need to multitask and need an app for efficient disk management. It sits quietly on menu bar and one click gives you access to mounted drives. The name can be somewhat misleading as it is not much of a disk cleanup centric utility. However, it performs near flawlessly and makes disk management simpler and faster. The app lets you view free space on each mounted drive quickly. Its few but useful drive customization features are suited for busy users as well. Apart from lack of support for older versions of OS X there is nothing that goes against this nifty app.

Rating: 3/5
