Clean Up Your Mac’s Hard Drive With DriveSlim

Driveslim2DriveSlim is another key tool in Prosoft’s award-winning Drive Genius 3 software that helps you easily clean up your Mac hard drive and regain valuable hard drive space with various slimming plans. This is especially useful for SSD owners!

How does DriveSlim work? 

DriveSlim offers the following options to clean up your hard drive and reclaim space:

Duplicate File Search and Delete

Ever wonder how many duplicate files you have on your hard drive? DriveSlim can search for all duplicates, show you their location and let you delete the unnecessary duplicates. This can save you tons of space on your hard drive.

Large File Search and Delete

Your Macintosh is loaded with hundreds of thousands of files on the hard drive and most likely you have some very large files clogging up your hard drive? Whether it’s a video of the Dramatic Chipmunk or some funny email attachment someone sent you, chances are you have large files taking up space on your hard drive that you don’t know about. But you can easily find them and delete them from you hard drive. You set the file size you want to search for, and DriveSlim scans your hard drive and shows you all the files larger than that size. The scan results are finder-enabled so that you can click on found files to see what they are. You can then select the files you want to have deleted. It’s that simple. This feature can free up gigabytes of space!



Multi-language Slimming

Do you know that your Mac can speak multiple languages? Unfortunately, unless you speak another language, that feature (and all the files to support it) are just wasting space on your hard drive. With DriveSlim, you can select which languages you want your Mac to support, and delete the others (that you don’t speak).

Universal Binary support removal

When Apple made the transition to Intel-based Macs, applications had to be made in a way that supported the new Intel-based Macs as well as the older PowerPC-based Macs from years back. If you’re on an Intel-based Mac you are probably never going to revert back to an older machine that needs Universal support, so why not free up the hard drive space of those support files? DriveSlim makes it easy to trim all those down to only support the new Intel-based Macs.


One of the greatest things about DriveSlim is the built-in backup. This feature allows you to backup any and all files that you have marked for deletion in DriveSlim. That way, you can save/archive the files off to a CD, DVD or second hard drive in case you ever want those files back.
