Macs are known as efficient devices, which can perform any task and solve any problem. The basic structure of Mac follows the latest technologies helping to enhance user experience. However, even Macs face certain difficulties, which are caused by the lack of storage space. The device becomes cluttered with trash and various data over time that may slow down its work. To clean space on Mac you can choose manual cleaning, system tools (Activity Monitor etc.) or automatic cleaning. Each of them is useful, but which one is less time-consuming?
Tips for Quick Cleaning
So how to clean your Mac space? Let’s consider the simplest things you can do yourself.
1. Empty the trash can. When you delete files, they go directly to the trash bin but it does not mean that they go away until you empty it. Over time, the system accumulates all this trash and it occupies a lot of space on your disk. You can free up some space getting rid of trash and different app folders. Compared to Windows, Mac has a number of trash cans for different folders and apps. If you want to delete all of them, that is how to make that happen: press Ctrl + Click and choose the option Empty Trash.
2. Uninstall the apps. Not all of them, but those ones, which you never use. Nevertheless, all of them keep running in the background occupying your storage space. To find them, open Finder and choose Applications folder. Then click the icon Show items in a list and press Size Tab to sort all the apps installed by size. Once you have decided which apps you do not need, choose it in the sidebar and move it to Trash. You can also block websites on Mac as the source of unnecessary files.
3. Get rid of duplicates. Such duplicate files as pictures, music, audio, documents, videos and other files accumulate in your system and can take lots of space. They can appear due to the file transfer, downloading, data back up etc. and need to be removed. Make sure you checked your downloads and files for the presence of duplicates and delete them.
Automatic tools and their work
How to clean my Mac space? The least time-consuming way of doing it is one of a number of automatic cleaning apps such as MacFly Pro or others. They generate unnecessary files (cache, cookies, temporary files and duplicates, log files and other junk) and then remove them automatically. For example, MacFly Pro works 24/7, so you can be sure that your Mac is always safe and sound.
Installing one of these apps will not only make your life easier but also let you concentrate on your work instead of cleaning. Good luck!
