Intego is thrilled to announce the release of Washing Machine 2014 – we’ve been working hard, and it’s finally ready for you. Intego has completely rewritten Washing Machine from the ground up, transforming it from an Internet security tool to a powerful Mac utility. It safely seeks out and removes large, unneeded files, freeing up valuable hard disk space and speeding up the operating system. Washing Machine also features tools to organize the dock and desktop, and lets you create Smart Folders for quick access to frequently used files. The result is a Mac optimized for greater efficiency.

Washing Machine performs the following tasks:

  • Reclaims Space: Seeks out files you no longer use or need and quickly cleans them from your machine, freeing up gigabytes of space and increasing Mac performance. These files include downloads, caches, logs and trash.
  • Finds Duplicates: Identifies duplicate files by analyzing the bits, and lets you select which versions to remove. Other Mac cleaners find duplicates by using basic techniques that fail to identify all duplicates.
  • Creates Smart Folders: A powerful OS tool, Smart Folders offer quick access to frequently used files and applications. Smart Folders can be added to finder favorites.
  • Organizes the Dock: Shows what apps are used the most (or least) and allows you to quickly drag the apps to or from the dock.
  • Cleans up Desktop Files: Moves files on the desktop to the appropriate finder folders or the trash.

Washing Machine’s streamlined user experience provides helpful instructions and tips. Its redesigned, easy-to-use interface lets you explore which files, caches and downloads are safe for removal before you remove them. With complete control over what stays and what goes, you can individually select files to delete or allow Washing Machine to do it for you.

Washing Machine 2014 is now available in English online at and will be available in other languages in early November. You can visit the site and sign up to be notified when Washing Machine launches in other languages.

A risk-free, limited trial version available on the site allows you to scan your Mac to see how much space can be reclaimed and how many duplicate files are on your computer. You must buy the full version to clean items off your Mac.
