Five Questions to Ask Before Using Detox My Mac
Is your Mac no longer running the way it used to?
Have you found that it has slowed down a lot when you are using programs, or even using the internet? Would you rather salvage the Mac you have instead of spending money on a new one? If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions, it may be time to consider looking into a Mac ‘cleaning’ product – such as Detox My Mac. Rated five ‘cows’ from tucows and four and a half stars from cnet.com, as well as featured in iCreate Magazine, Detox My Mac may be what you are looking for to get your machine running optimally again. Before loading it onto your Mac, however, take a few minutes to really consider these five questions.
What does this software do?
Basically Detox My Mac does exactly what the title implies – it ‘detoxes’ your system. It goes into the areas where application leftovers, unused languages, old trash and download files, cache files, and history files are taking up space, and it clears them out. This can help your Mac return to the speed, disk space, accuracy, response time, and lifespan it had when you first bought it.
Do you need this software?
It is possible to manually go into each area of your system and delete out old files and other things that are causing issues. But that can take a lot of time and effort, not to mention needing to know exactly where to look for those files. Detox My Mac takes a lot of the time and guessing out of the process by finding all of those files and issues for you.
What versions of the software exist?
There are two versions you can download of Detox My Mac. The basic system detoxes logs and trash. As it is free, it is a great way to try out the software, see how it works, and see how much it helps your Mac. The Pro version (which costs around $25), detoxes logs and trashes plus caches, downloads, languages, application leftovers, backups, and history, and also comes with 24/7 tech support.
What are some issues that using this software can cause?
It is very important before running a program such as Detox My Mac that you do a full backup of everything in your system. Detox means delete in the case of this program, and that means it will delete things such as preferences, logins, and authorizations if you aren’t careful. You can choose not to scan these areas, or not detox them if you do scan them, or even manually select items from the scan that you do and do not want to detox. But it is best to be aware and be prepared that this issue may arise.
Where do you purchase this software once you’ve decided to use it?
Detox My Mac is easy to purchase straight through the company website (detox.my.mac.com). You can also find links to the website through articles online, such as the cnet.com article about the software.
