Final Take – Clean My Mac 3 performed the cleaning tasks efficiently and it did recover a good amount of Disk Space for us, besides that it even contains a Disk file Shredder which really permanently deletes a file instead of temporary removal (file-deleted by shredder cannot be recovered by file recovery software) and thus is a good security practice.

The version we used for review was paid and was sponsored by MacPaw and you can get Clean My Mac 3 by purchasing from here.,
