Now with Disk Diet, the original disk cleaning app first released in 2011, it only takes about a minute to free up gigabytes of unnecessary files. Let it sort through the 10 different areas to clean out and save your time for better things.

Dark and light mode are both supported, so it looks great with either one.
In addition, on Catalina it is notarized by Apple, and uses the Hardened Runtime to ensure it's the original from Tunabelly Software and hasn't been tampered with.
