Documents

Movie

On your Mac, you may store movies downloaded from iTunes, created with video editing apps or transferred from your iPhone. Whatever the reason you keep video files on your Mac, you should keep in mind that these files take up huge disk space. Manually locating them may be tricky. Go to the Movie category in MacCleaner Pro, review your video files, and remove all large and unneeded ones.

Music

As well as movies, downloading music from iTunes causes the Mac disk space to be filled. Go to the Music category to review a list of all music files stored on your Mac. Select unwanted songs and click to remove them.
