OS X App Review – Tweak and Tuneup

I came across Tweak and Tuneup by Systweak Software earlier today the thought I would give it a try. It is currently available for free download from the Mac App Store and has high review scores.

It installed fine, but I immediately ran into problems with the software. The first thing that it does is attempt to identify the user’s home directory, which fails on my system. Unfortunately the software is not smart enough to understand my system configuration. When I installed an SSD as the boot drive, I configured the system to use the original 500GB drive for user space through a symbolic link. I am guessing that the App is unable to identify my home directory because of this.

If you are willing to give the App a try (it has a 4.5/5 user rating in the App store) now is a good time. As I have mentioned in other articles, freeing your boot drive of clutter is key to keeping your Mac in good working order.
