USBMate is an app which optimizes and accelerates the operation of USB Flash drives, external hard disks and Flash memory cards.
---Now Ready for Yosemite!---
-MacTech rating 8 out of 10-

Use USBMate every time before ejecting your USB Flash drive and:
- its contents will be clean and optimized, without useless junk. All temporary files left by Snow Leopard / Lion / Mountain Lion or Windows (.DS_Store, .Trashes, .Spotlight-V100, Thumbs.db, etc.) will be erased.
- it will be made secure thanks to the built in anti-virus!

Every time USBMate is launched, the anti-virus automatically checks and purges the USB Flash drive’s contents of all AutoRun viruses!

All you have to do is launch the app before ejecting the USB Flash drive: A few seconds later, it will be optimized, clean and secure!

Remember: Snow Leopard / Lion / Mountain Lion / Windows put temporary files and other junk in your USB Flash drive every time you use it. Launch USBMate each time before ejecting a USB Flash drive, and it will stay clean and secure! That’s because only USBMate has a full-featured anti-virus program!

When you erase files from a USB Flash drive, they’re only moved to the trash. The data itself isn’t erased. Use USBMate and see how much free space is really left in your USB Flash drive.
It’s one of the most practical utility apps to use every day with Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion.

Error When Cleaning in Catalina

When I was still on Mojave, it worked well. No longer cleans camera cards in Catalina. No longer a help.

Great app if you use aboatload of USB Drives (freelancer friendly)

Instead of running my security apps every bloody time I insert a drive, it goes off automatically. letting continue working.

(FYI: You must give it persmission to access the drive).

Only prob (minor) is this is the third menu bar app to use the same icon as Apple's "Ejector" menu bar app (the heck?).

Not helpful

There is no preferences menu. When you chose a drive, it unmounts and when it is finished sometimes it re-mounts and sometimes it doesn’t. And it does not optimize in the true sense. I’m not sure exactly what it does, but files are still fragmented in larger drives. Definitely not worth my $5.
