After putting in place any problems found on the boot drive of your Mac, you canclean cache files. The cache files are temporary data that applications and OS X itselfused to quickly retrieve specific information and keep in its memory some user preferences. Can be erased without problems almost always in order to free up disk space and unlock” some app that may present small malfunctions due to cache filecorrupted.
Proceed therefore in section Deletes of OnyX, put the check mark on data types to be removed (eg. Startup, browser Cache etc.) and click on the run button to start clearingthe cache. The cache files are divided by the application in different tabs: System, user, Internet, Font, and Various Reports. To delete all you’ll need to repeat the cleaningcard tab. I recommend though, helped with the help files included with OnyX figuring out which items you will need to delete and which ones are not (just click on the help button located in the bottom left corner).
Another very useful function of OnyX is performing some maintenance scripts for OS Xthat help keep fit the system. Activating the latter Options Maintenance tab Script >are automatically applied with daily, weekly and monthly without the user having tomove a finger.
In conclusion, I recommend a program that might be useful in removing all those app that have the bad habit of leaving a trace on your system even after their uninstalling.It’s called AppCleaner and use it is easy: just drag the inside of its main window icons for the applications to be removed, instead of in the trash. This will make it possible toidentify all AppCleaner traces left by software around for the hard disk and delete them with one click (together with the software itself).
