Cleaning/Recovering Disk space on a Mac with El Capitan

My husband downloaded CleanMyMac. I'm not sure about it and reviews are mixed. Anyone here who has better insight on this, I'd appreciate it. Of course, if free, always all the better.

Not so much insight but

Not a title I'd let near any Apple I own. I think it's better to keep my home folder clean and backup what I can't lose rather than use this title.

Step away from the CleanMyMac software

fully agree with Bob on this one.

re:Cleaning/Recovering Disk space on a Mac with El Capitan

Well my first suggestion would be to run Onyx. It is a free utility that will clean out your caches and other trash. Another tool is CleanGenius , it cleans potentially unneeded files, removes the unwanted applications and related files. If you are still lacking on the free space, you could purchase an external hard-drive.

Be careful with any software that claims to

remove unwanted software.

Unless you are in complete control of it, stay away
