Koingo Software releases Amnesia 1.0 - Easily Uninstall Mac Apps
April 2, 2009 in Utility
[prMac.com] Kamloops, British Columbia - Koingo Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Amnesia! Easily uninstall applications, preference panes, screen savers, and Dashboard widgets from Mac OS X as well as all their related files. Selling for shareware US$9.95, Amnesia is available for a free 15 day trial and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
Many software titles on Mac OS come with the uninstall directions of simply "Drag the application to the Trash and empty it". In reality, this often leaves many related files on the computer taking up valuable hard drive space. Amnesia performs a smart scan to determine all related files to be removed.
Amnesia will remove logs, caches, application support files, preferences, crash reports, and other application specific files. In addition, turn on a secure deletion option to prevent recovery of the removed files.
If there are concerns about removing potentially wanted files, Amnesia comes with a built-in backup function which creates an archive of related files in case you wish to restore them at a later time. It will reinstall the pieces of the product exactly where they came from - even if you choose to restore to a different machine!
Another powerful feature Amnesia has to offer is the ability to create a list of untouchable software sets (in addition to the ones built-in). They are software products which Amnesia will warn you about incase a remove is attempted. This is handy incase a particular software product should be removed using a manufacturer-provided uninstaller instead.
