HELP: MX Cleanup

This application offers several easy actions to check and increase hard drive space.

  • Folders
  • Apt (Installation)
    • Old files are ones that can no longer be downloaded
  • Logs
    • Old logs end in .gz, .old, and .1
  • Trash

Baobab (Disk Usage Analyzer) gives a very nice graphical display of your used space

Note that there are other cleanup applications available in the repos such as Bleachbit, but these have a significant potential to destroy an OS and should only be used by advanced users.
