Disk Doctor Pro is our all-new and ultra-powerful disk cleaning app that is capable of removing gigabytes of unneeded files from your Mac within just a few minutes.
The app automatically scans your Mac’s hard drive and quickly displays a huge range of files that can be safely removed to free up valuable disk space and improve system performance.
Disk Doctor Pro scans the following areas:
Caches are used to speed up your apps. However, some apps do not delete their caches after they are no longer needed. This can lead to wasted disk space.
Some applications automatically create log files that may become quite large. Removing these is an easy way to free up disk space when you are running low.
Uninstalled applications sometimes do not fully remove all their associated files. You can free up disk space by removing these unnecessary files.
Your web browser stores content from web pages on your hard drive. These caches can make websites faster, but often caches become filled with outdated files.
iTunes Temporary Files
Using iTunes to manage and update your iOS devices can often generate lots of temporary caches and files. These can be removed to free up disk space.
Unused applications provides a list of apps that have not been used in over 90 days. Use this section to identify and remove apps that you no longer need.
iOS Software Updates
You can safely delete old iOS software updates that you no longer need to reduce your disk space usage.
Removing old iPhone and iPad backups is often a quick way to free up a huge amount of disk space.
Partial downloads can be identified and removed as they are files that have not been successfully downloaded due to either being paused or cancelled.
Your downloads folder can become very large as it is the default location where files are saved to. Our app can help you to identify files that you no longer need.
Attachments received via email are often temporarily saved to disk if viewed within your Mail app. Deleting these files will free up disk space without impacting the original email attachments.
Message attachments are files you have sent and received via the Messages app. Deleting these files can help free up valuable disk space.
Files on your Mac that are larger than 100 MB are identified. You can browse through this list of files and select any that you no longer need.
When developing using Xcode, your projects will generate intermediate build files, indexes and archives. Deleting these can save disk space and also help fix performance issues and build errors.
These are corrupted or damaged preferences for apps installed on your Mac. Deleting these can help solve problems and free up disk space.
Broken Login Items
Sometimes when an app is deleted, a broken link to it can remain in your Login Items. This is unnecessary and can be safely removed.
Screenshots that you capture on your Mac can accumulate over time, cluttering up your desktop and taking up valuable disk space.
DMG and PKG files are typically used for macOS software installers. After installation of an app, you can save disk space by removing these files.
Emptying your trash regularly can prevent unneeded files using up your disk space.
Disk Doctor Pro has a beautiful light and dark theme and comes with full Retina support.
With over 8 years of experience, we have created Disk Doctor Pro to set a new gold standard for disk cleaning on the Mac.

Ratings and Reviews
Disk Doctor Pro
Overall, it’s a pretty good application. Thank you to the developer for addressing notification sound. I don’t mind paying for upgrades, developers have to make money. It’s odd how some users firmly believe that once they pay for an application, they are entitled support forever. What an interesting bubble to live in. Keep up the good work.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. We have addressed this issue in version 1.0.3, which will be released today on the Mac App Store.
Freed up over 60GB!
I had the older verison of Disk Doctor, and I didn't mind at all paying for this newer version. This is why…
I have had the same basic image that I have transitioned through all of my Macs, spanning back to the first Leopard release of the OS many years ago.
I’m fairly tech-savvy and good at managing space, but as you can imagine…I’d allotted a lot of ‘hidden’ files and applications over time that I have no need for — but weren’ta ble to track down.
Some I had forgotten about, some I wouldn’t have bena ble to know about.
I first did a TIME MACHINE BACKUP, like the Disk Doctor Pro people recommend — and then I safely went from ~4GB fo space earlier in the day to now having 100GB!
Disk Doctor Pro saved me more space than even its clean, as it gave me a ‘hint’ on where to look for other bulky files, based on the ones it recommended for deletion.
Long story short — this app paid for itself many times over within minutes.
Even if you are a good ‘space manager’, this is an app really worth having and will pay for itself…if not today, then a bit down the road.
I like it ...but.
The problem with apps like these is that unless you are well versed on what everything that can safely be deleted you will have problems. Deleting caches can cause real problems...can cause various apps to lose prefs, not launch at startup, some apps simply have to be reinstalled after a major cleanup. Apps like these should have automatic safeties built in to provent the deletion of certain critical caches. The list of things you can choose to delet is great but there must be care built in so that idiots like me do not cripple apps because our lack of knowlege and our desire to save space.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
