    Application to delete redundant files
    Hello I am a new Macbook user and finally figured out how to uninstall applications by deleting the application it's self. However numerous other files still linger rather than using spotlight to search and manually remove the files is there a program that will do this for me? I know there are numerous uninstallers that will do it for me, I am looking for an app that will search for files for applications that I have already deleted.

    Not that I know of. I think programs like AppZapper use the information from the app itself to find all the files associated with it. I don't think anything is going to do anything different at this point than spotlight will.

    unless of course you re-insall the app then drag it to appzapper.

    but you know completely ignoring my post was kinda stuck up.

    It wasn't stuck up because Appzapper wont do what I want it to do. I need something that will find files of programs I have already uninstalled. As far as I know appzapp only uninstalls programs I have.
