Frequently Asked Questions

What are Remains?

Remains are files that are left on the hard drive even though the applications that used them are no longer in the system (this occurs when apps are removed into Trash by dragging).

What are service files and why are they needed?

Service files are created during an app’s operating process; they save information about app preferences, logs, error reports and supporting data.

Why do I need a special app for uninstallation?

Applications on macOS can be deleted simply by putting them into Trash. Nevertheless, some service and temporary files from the deleted apps may still remain. Little by little these files can take up a huge amount of hard drive space.

Are there any usage restrictions on applications?

This app uninstaller does not allow you to delete apps from Apple. This is done to prevent any violations of system integrity or performance as many apps are required by the system and their removal is not desirable, e.g. Terminal app.
