Disk Diet Helper Tool

Automatically clean up unused app translations and system logs.
Downloading and installing this optional tool allows Disk Diet to remove system logs and extra languages from applications. This is especially important for the App Store version since it does not come bundled with it. Just click the download button below to get started.
Version: 1.1.2
Published: January 31, 2020

What do I do with this?
Unzip the "Disk Diet Helper Installer.zip" file after it's downloaded (it may already be depending on the browser settings), then double click the "Disk Diet Helper Installer" app. It will prompt you for your user password to install the helper tool. After it's successfully installed the helper tool, it's safe to move the two files to the trash.

Where is the Disk Diet helper tool being installed?
The Disk Diet helper tool will be installed to /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.tunabellysoftware.DiskDietHelper and /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.tunabellysoftware.DiskDietHelper.plist

Why do I need to download this?
This is only required for the Mac App Store version of Disk Diet, to give it the ability to clean out system logs, as well as unsued lanaguages from applicaitons.

Why can't Disk Diet just do this to begin with?
The website version will prompt to install the tool since it's built in. However, the Mac App Store version does require this since the approval guidelines do not allow asking for administrator privileges (for cleaning system logs) or modifying other applications, which includes removing unused language translations.
