If the uninstallation file wasn’t saved, don’t worry. We have a solution for such a situation. We have two alternative methods of uninstalling this app: a manual step-by-step process, and an automatic, immediate process using a removal tool.

How to manually uninstall Daemon Tools Lite

You can completely uninstall any application manually. The only disadvantage is that this method requires more time and may be difficult for inexperienced users. Just follow the steps outlined in this guide to understand how.

  1. First, go to the Applications folder and remove DAEMON Tools from there. uninstall daemon tools mac
  2. Then you should find and remove the app’s remaining files.
  3. Remains are the service files of previously-deleted applications. When you launch and use apps, they create a large number of service files, such as cache, logs, preferences, scripts, and so on. These files are stored in the system’s Library folder, which is hidden by default.

    After the removal of apps, their support files remain in Library – that’s why they are called remains. If you wish to keep your disk space free of excess clutter and to avoid errors or viruses that may affect your Mac’s performance, these files need to be removed.

    To get to the Library folder, open Finder → in the menu bar, select Go → Go to Folder… → in the search field type ~/Library → click GOhow to uninstall daemon tools

    Here in the Library, you should check the following subfolder for the remains of DAEMON Tools:

    • ~Library/Containers/
    • daemon tools without adware

    • ~Library/Caches/
    • ~Library/Preferences/
    • demon tools from mac

    • ~Library/Cookies/
    • ~Library/Logs/
    • ~Library/LaunchAgents/
    • daemon tools for mac

  4. After the removal of files associated with DAEMON Tools, empty the Trash and restart your Mac.

This manual method can be used to uninstall any program on a Mac. But you should note that some apps may scatter their files throughout the disk. Finding the service files may be difficult, and it may take a huge time to find all of them, especially those that are hidden. You can use the free application, Funter from Nektony, to find hidden files. Or you can use App Cleaner & Uninstaller, which automatically finds the apps’ service files and allows you to uninstall an app completely with just one click.
