Out of sight, out of mind, so out with it!
I tend to go with the out of sight out of mind approach when it comes to files on my computer. If I haven’t touched it or thought about it for long enough that I’ve forgotten it’s there, chances are it’s not important enough to keep, and those are exactly the files that Disck Diag digs out of the netherworld. Mind you, it’s best to double check exactly what the app has signed up for the chopping block, but for the most part, the biggest things weighing down my Macbook Pro mid-2012 were useless email files and caches. Before using Disk Diag, I had a measly 28 G left of my 750 G hard drive. One click and maybe 5 minutes of waiting later, 4 years worth of useless junk was wiped away, and my free storage jumped up to around 260 G. A simple and efficient way to do a little (or a lot) of spring cleaning. Very happy that I bought this app.

Thank you so much for your praise and detailed feedback! It feels great to us and thanks for sharing your experiences with others.
SIMPLE, NO MUSS, NO FUSS, WORKS GREAT
Using any tool like Disk Diag involves a certain level of trust in what the program does and how it does it. You have turned your computer over to an unknown enitty, and then must hope/pray it does what it is supposed to do, does it well, without any 'funny business'. I've used Disk Diag on and off for a long time, it seems to be simple to use and effective in getting rid of 'stuff'.
At this point, I trust it to work as advertised, and it seems to do that very well. As I say, no muss, fuss or bother. It is simply another tool to help keep my computers happy and healthy. And these days, that is no mean feat.
Secret updates in the background
The only reason I rate the app two star is because it does 'secret' updates in the background. You have no way of specifying whether you want to check for updates or not. The app does whatever it does in the background, whenever it wants. Despite the fact that the release date on the app store (and in the app's about dialog) is v1.4, which was released in 2015, the app regularly does updates. One day you open the app and you get a splash screen saying "Thank you for updating to the latest version..." What kind of sarcastic marketing gimmick is this!? You know that the customer did not chose to update the software. You did that secretly. Based on this kind of shady tactics, who knows what other information the app collects and sends. Unless you use apps like Little Snitch, you will never know.
Other than this, the app would seem decent enough to use although you can pretty much do anything manually yourself.

Thanks for the feedback and really sorry for the issue! The app is sandboxed and reviewed by Apple, to assure Mac users the app does not have hidden features.
Welcome window is only supposed to show up at updates to inform you about changes. If the window comes up more often it is caused by a rare OS bug. Please contact us for a workaround at http://rockysandstudio.com/contact Thanks for your understanding!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
