As we all already know, not all applications play nicely with a user’s internal storage. Furthermore, there are tons of additional waste files on most users’ internal storage thanks to bug reports, unneeded log files, and more—and let’s not get started on files and folders such as thumbs.db and .DS_Store left by our desktop operating systems after mounting our mobile devices.
Thankfully, XDA Recognized Developer Dark3n has done something about this problem, after getting some inspiration from a thread in which a user was looking for a solution to this very problem. Developed into much more than a simple internal storage cleaning tool, SD Maid is a fairly general purpose utility that takes care of the mess on your storage, as well as lets you do some nifty tricks such as uninstall applications without removing their application data (handy if you wish to reinstall at a later time). SD Maid also functions as a root-enabled file manager, it can remove Play Store search history, it gives you an overview of your most space-hogging files, it can freeze and unfreeze applications, and it has the ability to remove empty directories.
Needless to say, such a utility is quite useful for those who value order and cleanliness. So what are you waiting for? Head over to the application thread to bask in your OCD._________
