Not that I am aware of. One man's rubbish is another man's gold. That would be a hard app to write. It comes down to managing your own data I'm afraid. There are a few apps to help you understand where your disk space is going however, Disk Inventory X and WhatSize. Get them at:

Disk Inventory X: http://www.derlien.com

WhatSize: http://www.id-design.com/software/whatsize

Both do a great job at letting you zero in on your largest disk space consumers, and both are freeware, which is good.

Sounds like the same thing as MainMenu and Onyx.

MainMenu has options to delete old log files and temp files. Sort of considered as cleaning the hard drive of unwanted files.

For disk formatting and other disk related issues, such as repairing your permissions, use Disk Utility, found in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder.
