Preference Files are those in which applications store their settings and other information.
Preferences are important files, but sometimes they are completely unnecessary. This can occur, for example, when a mother application no longer exists on your computer. Over time, the Preferences Folder will become filled with files created by trashed demo applications, or applications used for a short time. Preference files can also be damaged or corrupted, interferring with program start up.
These files continue to take up valuable disk space! PrefsOverload was designed to resolve both problems. It can browse the Preferences Folder, and detect damaged or unnecessary Preferences files.
