What is Megabackup?

Megabackup is a cloud-based software tool that allows you to make backups of your files and store them in a cloud-storage in order to access them from anywhere. Also, Megabackup provides options for folder synchronization and screenshot editing. The App runs on both Windows and Mac operating systems. Megabackup is free to download, but you need to purchase it to be able to use it. Thus, if you downloaded it but decided not to use it, follow the article. We will explain how to delete Megabackup from Mac completely and safely.


How to Remove Megabackup from Mac Manually

The most important thing you should remember about app removal on a Mac is that just deleting them to Trash folder is not enough. In this case, apps leave tons of service files on your Mac that eat up a precious disk space. To uninstall Megabackup completely, follow the steps below:

  1. Quit the Megabackup application.

  1. Close all the Megabackup processes that may work in the background. For this, open Activity Monitor → select MegaBackupAgent → click to kill it.

  1. Now you can go to the Applications folder and remove Megabackup to Trash.

  1. Then you need to find and remove the leftovers from the app. The apps’ service files usually are stored in the Library folder. Open Finder → in the Menu click on Go → select Go to Folder… → in the search field type ~/Library → click on Go.

  1. Here in the Library folder, you need to find and delete all files and subfolders related to Megabackup. In our case, we found the following files:
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.megabackup.MegaBackup.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.megabackup.MegaBackupAgent.plist
  • ~/Library/Caches/io.fabric.sdk.mac.data/com.megabackup.MegaBackup
  • ~/Library/Caches/io.fabric.sdk.mac.data/com.megabackup.MegaBackupAgent

Please note that you may have more service files, depending on actions you made using the app. Thus we recommend that you use a free application, Funter, which allows you to find all hidden system files on a Mac.

The last step is just to empty the Trash to remove Megabackup permanently.


How to Get Rid of Megabackup with 2 Clicks

App Cleaner & Uninstaller is free to download from the App Store.
