Aladdin Releases Spring Cleaning 2.0 -- Aladdin Systems today started shipped the long-awaited upgrade to Spring Cleaning 2.0, the popular uninstaller utility for the Macintosh. Spring Cleaning helps you clean up your hard disks by removing redundant and unnecessary files in ten different ways. Changes and additions from Spring Cleaning 1.0 include a new, easier interface; a Duplicates Remover module that finds and removes duplicate files; Storage Folders that can act as temporary holding spots until you feel confident in deleting files; and archiving with StuffIt compression, if you want to save space without deleting files. Features remaining from 1.0 include the capability to uninstall applications and their related files, remove unnecessary PowerPC or 68K code within fat binary applications, remove orphaned preferences, fix broken aliases, remove empty folders, and more. Spring Cleaning 2.0 requires System 7.0 or later, and it lists for $120; free upgrades from 1.0 will be available on Aladdin's Web site through 31-Dec-97. [ACE]
