I love it when colleagues share their technical tips and resources! This is the beauty of the Geek List and the NextSpace List in action.
If your Mac has begun to slow…
I began to get frustrated … my 2 1/2 -year-old beloved MacBook Pro began to get slower and slower … Of course, since everything’s supposed to be so automatic on the Mac, it was a bit hard to get data on what was going on.
- First, I found this product Clean My Mac, which cleans out lots of log files and junk … it seemed to make a marked improvement in the performance again. (http://macpaw.com/cleanmymac)
- Then, I found this post the other day on StumbleUpon – http://simplestation.com/locomotion/speed-up-mac-os-x-leopard/ . Lots of good little tips …
- Foremost of which, and by far the best tip yet, was to get iDefrag (http://www.coriolis-systems.com/iDefrag.php), which defragged my 180GB hard drive over a period of several hours …
My Mac is back to normal! This definitely improves my professional life substantially. Makes a huge difference.
I had to share this.
Thanks for sharing, Chris!
