And you really can’t see them unless you kinda dig down deep into a whole bunch of folders so I’m gonna show you little tips on how to find those log files those cache and also how to simply keep your computers random access memory or virtual memory as clean and as available as possible so that your applications will run faster and is not sluggish while you working so the first thing we’re gonna talk about is how to clean your memory.
So when I’m speaking about memory I’m talking about random access memory and one of the applications that I recommend for this which I’ve been using and I use actually throughout the day as I’m working is something called memory clean II will put a link to this in the comments area of this tutorial but you can download it for free here or you can get it in the Apple Store which it’s also free and when you download it just install it.
From the Mac App Store like any of the other apps install into your Applications folder look for the application called memory clean but eventually after it installs will put a little item up here this little clock item that will show you that you can clean I your memory from this little area so it makes it very available it also shows you how much memory you have available and if your memory goes in the red over here it usually means you probably need.
To clean it a call for this program is you actually do not have to restart your computer you can clean your memory or throughout the day so when is there a big memory hog that happens while you working you might ask one of the ways is when you’re in photoshop and you have done a lot of retouching in Photoshop and now that you’ve done with it you’re not really going to use Photoshop for lets say the next 2 hours but meanwhile there’s a whole bunch of cache that is.
Space that is kinda being taken up by that program so a nice way to clean it would be using a program such as this and it’s free so all you do is come up here click on it and then you hit this little blue button called clean memory as you can see it’s going through the process so we were at shoot gigabytes let’s see if we get any more available I actually cleaned up before the tutorial so we won’t get too much more by Albert see what if we get a little bit more than 2.3.
And here we go almost and its 88 percent nineb_ and so done and the in and look at that I doubt if you could buy as memory back your ex you now met 3.4 now people working now with interesting about this is really fall is when I get it earlier I only have one 165 available so imagine I went from 1.65.
