Clean Mac Lion memory | How to Free Up Memory in Mac OS X

Mac memory cleaner tool is a good option to free up memory and gain some space. Although the Mac OS X is smart enough to manage the memory resources on drive but sometimes its lacks in doing this. There may be a situation when RAM is held unnecessarily and slowing down the speed.

Just go to terminal and type “purge”. It will free up your RAM and get your resources back. This command cleans your cache at both disk and memory. 

It is important to note that its not just your busy RAM which is responsible for a slow Mac but a low amount of free space in boot volume is equally accountable. Talking technically, when we run a large application or several applications altogether, the requirement of memory increases goes beyond the limit of RAM. In this situation, the OS also uses the free space available in boot volume.

So, a user should take care of maintaining adequate free space in drive else, it may crash your application and can also cause a data loss situation.

If slow speed is a continuous problem in your Mac then we recommend to use a Mac memory cleaner for drive. Stellar Speed Up Mac will be best selection for this task. It removes all sort of useless items like cache, duplicate files, universal binaries, unwanted language files, system logs etc.

  1. There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.

    But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?

    I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
