Which is the disk cleaner for Mac?
For Windows, the utility or tool used to clean the hard drive is Disk Cleanup. For Mac OS X, the equivalent of Disk Cleanup is the Disk Utility application. It is normally used to repair the hard drive but it can also be used to clean the drive for unwanted files and junk files.
To open Disk Utility, on your Mac double-click your main drive or the drive where the operating system is installed. Next, go to Applications, Utilities, and then select Disk Utility. See image.
In Disk Utility, select First Aid tab and then click Repair Disk. It will perform proper disk maintenance and will delete junk files on your hard drive. See image.
Aside from Disk Utility, you can also use OnyX to cleanup your hard drive. It can improve the performance of your Finder, clean the system, enable hidden functions, and more. Visit OnyX Download Section to download the utility. There are different versions of OnyX for different versions of Mac OS X so make sure to download the correct version for your operating system.
