Are you a file hoarder? You may want to check out Broom. It’s a lightweight, easy-to-use disk cleaning utility for your Mac.
We’ve written about several apps on Splice Vine that show you what is taking up space on your Mac. CleanMyMac, DaisyDisk, OmniDiskSweeper and GrandPerspective all give you unique ways clean up your Mac.
- Alerts you when your disk space is running low
- Helps you to quickly pick and choose what needs to be cleaned up
Broom works in either standalone or menubar mode. In the the latter mode, all it takes is a click on the Broom icon to show you how much space you’ve got left on your hard drive.
You always want to make sure have at least 15% of free space on your boot drive to make sure your Mac runs smoothly.
By having an app that alerts you when you get to that threshold, you’ll never again find yourself in a situation where you have to scramble to delete or move video files offline just to keep working.
Free your drive and your mind will follow.
