Macaroni

Why should you have to remember to clean up your Mac every day, every week, and every month? Shouldn't a computer be able to remember for you?

Macaroni is a tool which handles regular maintenance for Mac OS X, including the Mac OS X repair privileges process as well as Unix-style maintenance. Without Macaroni, some of these tasks normally run in the middle of the night, and don't get run unless you leave your Mac on all night. Others don't run automatically at all, and won't happen unless you remember when they're due.

Macaroni remembers the schedule for you!

LOve it. Set it - forget it. It works so well, so unobtrusively, I forgot I even HAD it.

It works. It does what it says it does. Simple and easy to use. Cheap. What more could one want?

Great ap. Does what it says reliably. Highly reccomended

Another comment...Macaroni($8.00) and Onyx (free), as far as I can tell, do some of the same things but Macaroni is completely automated and works 100% in the background. Macaroni performs all the maintenance tasks to keep things running quick and smooth when the computer is idle and you can also schedule it to regularly delete localized files (foreign language files) that you'll likely never need. Over the last 18 months of using it I've saved several GB of space from the localized removal stuff. There are tools out there to do what Macaroni does but none of them automate it and are so "under the hood" as Macaroni. I actually don't know why Macaroni isn't integrated directly into Mac OS X by default, it's that good.

I just love this little app. I bought one license for each of my 3 Macs. It just puts the exclamation point on being able to say that Macs are maintenance-free and 100% stable. You'd be surprised at how much hard disk space it saves when it runs the "Remove Localized Files" job once a week.
