What is Spring Cleaning 2.0?

Although the vernal equinox is still a few months away, it’s never too early to tidy up your Mac with Spring Cleaning, a utility designed to clear hard drive clutter by removing unnecessary files, folders, and fonts. Improvements in version 2.0 include a revised interface, StuffIt integration for archiving files, plus several new search types and actions.

The revised interface remains a bit confiising, but for the most part, Spring Cleaning 2.0 works like the previous version. Just specify what you’re searching for (such as broken aliases, duplicate files, “fat” applications, fonts, lost documents, or preference files), then designate which drives to search. Files matching the criteria appear in a scrolling list in which you assign actions to them individually or in batches.

Several steps have been taken to make Spring Cleaning 2.0 safer than the previous version. The user’s guide is greatly improved with helpful tutorials and detailed explanations, and the search results windownow displays more information for making intelligent file management decisions. Finally, the new actions that move selected files to StuffIt archives, the Trash, or Storage folders offer much-needed safeguards against accidentally deleting files. Still, you need to be cautious when working with some searches, such as Orphaned Prefs Remover, which sometimes incorrectly identify files as unneeded. Spring Cleaning 2.0 is overkill for casual users, but it’s a great tool for anal-retentive Mac addicts running out of room on their hard drives.
