Well, hello. I decided to write a review on a utility that I did not quite often start using. Not easy, I fell in love with her. I’ll tell you how it was.
Once upon a time ... I decided to walk past an open Wi-Fi point to drop by to see today's news. And my “beautiful” Fly IQ256, as usual, started to slow down, but somehow it’s somehow not for children already. Even after clicking the cherished Clean Master
widget to clean the RAM, nothing happened ... And then I decided to closely search for a program for first of all cleaning the RAM, so I only had a miserable 512 MB. I don’t know why, but I didn’t get into Google Play as usual, and because I was in a hurry I just typed “RAM”. First of all, I saw the Smart Booster
program, but soon even bought the Pro version and abandoned it. And here, on a "very good" site, I found the coveted SD Maid
Let me remind you that for the full functioning of the application you need ROOT rights. Well, let's get started with an overview of the functions themselves. When opening, we see all the tabs with all kinds of functions:
The first section "Overview" is information about the program itself (version, key availability), the model of your device (Android version, processor architecture, its frequency and the amount of available RAM), ROOT status, information about the installed Busy Box (version, assembly, location), the version of the SQLite database (also location), the location of the data store (how much is available), and information about the memory card (everything is also described in percentage terms).
Also, when you click on each section (section icon more precisely), more detailed information opens. For example, when you click on the first icon, the type of program build and PostgreSQL build opens, or when you click on the second icon, information about the virtual environment, if any, and various factory codes of your device will open.
Next comes the Explorer tool. Pretty simple file manager without any bias. He sees system folders, can go to the root of the phone’s memory naturally, hidden files are visible.
You can carry out standard operations with the object like “Cut”, “Delete”, “Rename”, “Add an exception” (if you want other tools to not scan this file), “Change resolution” (change permissions "-r-" "- w- "and" -m- ")," Send "," Force media scan "(if you change something in the file, the data about it is updated without the need to update the entire library) and" Total size ".
Next is the "Search" function. It is naturally obvious, just have a search function in the root folders.
Next are the basic tools that I use more often than the above, so they are actual informational. Further "Manager".
It shows all the applications you have installed, and allows you to launch, terminate, pull out the APK, delete the application along with the data, freeze and reset to the initial installation, as well as autostart management.
Naturally, the ability to view details about the application (name, name “com.”, Version, date and time of installation and updates, User ID, process name, APK location, cache location, if there are permissions, permissions to services and User ID in Kernel, opportunity to send it all).
Also in the settings you can specify to scan system applications, which will give freedom to your dirty little hands.
The next section is “Garbage”. It seems to me that this utility is not looking for as much as we would like, but looking for something that others are not capable of, even give them ROOT.
It searches for the remains of application data, the remains of ASEC (encrypted applications), the remains of the cache, APKs from folders in the root of / data or / system / apps. Unused libraries from / data / app-lib, DEX and ODEX leftovers from Dalvik.
Further, a rather curious tool "System".
In it, you can clean your device of system log files (in short logs), logs of crashed applications (incorrectly completed), the cache naturally from failed downloads, for example, TMP cache, .log logs by itself, Windows junk (db, ini), MacOS junkies (spotlight, ds store, etc.), and the same thing from Linux (thrash), gallery thumbnails, thumbnail folders from other sources, garbage from LOST.DIR, error reports, statistics about running applications, logs non-responsive applications, ad trash, empty directories, GP search history, and much more that you are unlikely to want Do not clean unnecessarily.
He is looking for all sorts of leftovers from applications. For example, I have a cache and other garbage from Opera Classic
, cache and search history from Google Play, and every little thing from everyone else.
In the settings, it is also indicated to scan the system, or not.
Further the obvious point is “Duplicates”.
Searches for identical files not by name, but by the component of the files themselves. Also searches in root folders.
You choose what to remove, the newest, oldest, or to distribute by path, investment. Well, or just do it manually.
There is also the possibility of a preview.
The next section is to search for large files "Large".
After scanning, the scale is simply lined up for folders from the most populated. The weight and name are indicated.
When deleted, it sends it to Explorer.
In principle, that's all. Next is the "Databases" section.
It uses commands from SQL Vacuum to speed up the operation of an application.
When using this command, the size of these commands is reduced by small sizes.
And finally, the section "Recent Changes".
The last “purges” and the like are simply indicated, that is, history, for example, even renaming. The time and path to the file are indicated. The list is awesome.
It is possible to schedule cleaning. Any section is activated at any time.
In conclusion, I can say that the program has quite a few interesting features. That is, SD Maid is suitable for everyday use, as well as for individual cases.
Wrote his first article. Just read. Try the program.
