    AppCleaner thoroughness

    by yashi43 ·


    I have been using AppCleaner for a couple of years and it has served me very well. While it is obviously much better than not using it at all, I recently noticed that it still ends up leaving a lot of junk behind. For simple/small apps it works perfectly but for more complex ones (webex) it still leaves a bunch of files and folders clearly connected to the app. Any ideas how I could solve this ‘shortcoming’? I’ve tried using terminal to search for filenames but it ends up showing me a bunch of unrelated stuff (webex → webextensions).

      That works for them here. Report your findings to the app maker so they know what you found.

      Appears to find everything, including those files hidden deeply and are invisible.

      As for you AppCleaner problem, follow Mr. Proffitt’s advice
