Unlike previous versions of the MacOS, MacOS 9 does not delete temporary files from your computer's hard drive when the computer is shut down or restarted.

Many applications will put temporary files that they use while in operation into an invisible folder on your hard drive named, appropriately enough, "Temporary Items Folder". Applications are supposed to delete these temporary files when they are done with them, but many do not.

Eradicator allows you to peek inside this invisible "Temporary Items Folder", see what files are in there, and delete those files, if you wish. Even though I wrote this utility because of the MacOS 9 problem, it will work with MacOS 8.x and higher. Some users have reported saving up to 2 GB of hard drive space!

So, if your hard drive appears to be getting smaller and smaller each day and you're not sure why, try Eradicator. You just might Discover More Space.

Please Note: Non-English versions of Mac OS may not be able to utilize the "Cleanup at Startup" feature of Eradicator 1.6, but you will still be able to take advantage of the "Temporary Items" features.

Eradicator is licensed as freeware and is therefore free to download, use and keep.
