Sponge system cleaner

Dare to be Creative on Tuesday released a new system cleaning utility, Sponge 1.0, that can be used to help trim away unwanted data from hard drives. The software allows users to view the location and size of every application on their system, and provides the option to safely remove any unnecessary programs. Sponge also scans the disk for duplicate items that can be deleted, and presents a list of the files and directories that use the most disk space.

Sponge requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and can be purchased for $20, or downloaded for a free 15-day trial.

    It also crashes a lot. Is that a feature? Stops users from getting to interested....

    I get it

    So Sponge is essentially a re-branded Spring Cleaning. I wonder if it is as good at trashing files and systems.

    don't let it...

    Don't strip x86 code from binaries you might want to migrate to a new machine at some stage in the future!
