Duplicate File Finder *

Duplicate File Finder helps you regain disk space and reduce clutter by searching for files with identical content, irrespective of location or filename. Please review scan results carefully before selecting files for removal, but rest assured that in case of inadvertent deletion your files are recoverable from Mac OS's Trash.

App Shrinker *

Mac OS Applications often include space consuming resources such as a variety of unneeded language files. iBoostUp's App Shrinker trims applications into shape and saves disk space by removing these components.

System Caches

System caches can be useful in speeding up access to commonly launched applications or webpages. Over time caches can grow to consume considerable amounts of disk space so occasional purging is recommended.

Disk Optimization

Regularly performing a Disk Health 'Scan and Fix' will keep your startup times fast and your Mac responsive.

Memory Booster *

Mac OS X is quite competent at managing your system's memory, but in certain instances manually freeing memory can be beneficial to performance. Memory Booster frees up your Mac's RAM and is recommended for use prior to launching memory intensive applications such as graphic design packages, games and emulators.

iBoostUp is able to measure access to your most commonly visited websites and suggest more optimal settings if required.

File Shredder

ARP poisoning is a network attack technique whereby a connected user sends fake Address Resolution Protocol messages onto a local network. Attackers may then be able to intercept, modify and otherwise disrupt your network traffic. iBoostUp's ARP Cache Poisoning Detector scans for and alerts you with recommendations when ARP Cache Poisoning attacks are detected on the network.
