  • What does CleanMyDrive 2 do? CleanMyDrive 2 is a lightweight disk manager for external and internal drives. It provides quick access to any drive with detailed information on space usage, and cleans hidden junk from external disks. It’s lightning fast and easy to use, with a convenient interface that opens right from the OS X menu bar. CleanMyDrive 2 is the new, improved version of CleanMyDrive, with a beautiful makeover and a whole set of new features. “...A cute little companion to ease up your workflow.” – MacStories "...A nifty utility for people who want an easier way to manage drives." – MacWorld "...Just let it run in the background and keep your drives from accumulating junk." – LifeHacker “I can’t see any reason for you to not install it.” – AppShopper “The app is super simplistic.” – Cult of Windows “It makes storage-related chores a breeze.” – Softpedia With CleanMyDrive 2, you’ll be able to: Prevent issues with external drives after using them on other operating systems. Keep your external drives safe, even when you close your Pc and unplug them without ejecting in advance. Easily manage storage by knowing the types of files on your drives and how much space they take up. Quickly copy files to any drive by dragging them right into the app. Save time by ejecting all drives with one click or using a global shortcut. Choose a hand-crafted icon for each drive to make it look amazing. What kind of junk does CleanMyDrive 2 get rid of? 1. OS X Service files: .DS_Store, .Spotlight-V100, .TemporaryItems, .fseventsd 2. Windows Service files: Thumbs.db, RECYCLED, RECYCLER, $RECYCLE.BIN 3. Resource forks: files like ._MyPhoto.jpeg 4. Trash, such as files in trash bins that haven’t been emptied. Why should these files be removed? Service files created by OS X and Windows could corrupt your external drive’s compatibility with other devices. For instance, your camera slows down if the SD card has hidden system files. And, they spoil your experience by cluttering the main folder of your disks. You see resource forks when you’ve stored files on your USB stick and want to use them on other devices, such as your TV or car audio system. These devices can’t actually read them, but display them in the folder all the same. You have to scroll through them before you get to the files you actually need. Finally, trash from the bins simply takes space on your drives. And who doesn’t need a little extra disk space?

    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Was good...

      I really want to give this a 5 star review. When I first downloaded it, it was great. It gave information about my connected drives, cleaned them, and ejected them. I enjoyed it on my new PC. However, now, it stopped showing any information and no longer gives me the option to clean the drives. I reached out to support weeks ago, and the response I received was "We are busy with our new app, please bare with us." I was never answered, nor was there ever a fix sent out. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, restarting, everything I can think of, and still, no information nor option to clean. My app does not look like what's being advertised, it shows the hard drives and aline graphic for how full they are, but no information like "1.8 GB Free" or "No Junk" or how much storage total the drives have. I would liove to give this 5 stars, but, it stopped working and costumer service has apparently ignored my emails and screenshots of how my app is not working. I may have to find another app for my needs unless the developer can address this issue.

      Fantastic utility app

      I've used CleanMyDrive 2 for some months now, and it has become an indespesible part of my daily routine and computer use, particulary since I have to use a good number of flash drives / SD cards / etc for my work. Much of what I work on involves various media files, which then need to play on media players that are often sensitive to the "junk" files from PC. While I've had another very effective "cleaner" app for a long time, having the drive status messages, eject functions, menu bar access, etc all built in together really works well. It's one of those little things that takes away at least one or two daily distractions - that are really annoying - when using my Windows. Thank you and well done!

      One of my daily tools

      I have three external drives and an internal SSD. I'm not a "power user." I'm a novelist with things to do and I don't like playing with the tech more than needed to get my work done. This is one of my core tools. I can immediately get an overview of space usage on all drives; clean the junk out with a press of a button to free GBs of space; and get a overview of my extire storage situation. This was especially helpful while I was transfering (massive) photo libraries where I had to play with backups while repairing libraries, etc. Well worth the money. I no longer think about this stuff, which is what makes it good software.

      Useful beyond cleaning out the junk.

      I got this to remove the PC specific files from thumb drives that I share with other systems of course. But it is useful beyond that. When the drive is mounted, this app uses the native Notifications service to confirm that the drive has been mounted. If you click on the notice before it disappears, a finder window for that device is opened. I also like being able to use the menu drop down to dismount the drive rather than having to find the drive icon on the desktop to do a shift-click on it to dismount it.

      Microsoft should buy these guys!

      Finally an eject button that doesn't ask “”"do you really wish to eject what you are attempting to eject? Maybe your hand just shakes? you aren’t trying to do something are you? I like kites but what do you do if your kite winds around a power line?””” Nope, with this gem you click eject and drive(s) eject :D. I like my external drives just fine, but they aren’t people so we dont have to dialog every time we part ways! Seamless integration of single click eject, single click eject all, and a nice graphical view of free space on each attached and internal volume! Bravo!!! Oh and yeah its “Ad-Ware”, TBE it’s free, DOH
