Hey all,

I have this issue that is rather frustrating. Every time I use Clean My Mac, It delete's the PlugIn Prefs and VEP needs to do a Re-Scan of them all.. Any ideas?

 

Mac, 10.15.7

VEP 7.0.926

Yes, use something else. That's rather dodgy practice to be a default. Clean My Mac is not very reputable.

OnyX for instance; I use it to clear out junk, log files which build up and so forth. It's free, too and easy to use on the basic level.

MacBook Pro 16,1: 2.3 GHz 8-core i9
64GB 2667MHz DDR4
OSX 10.15.7
VE Pro 7.1056, Cubase Pro 11.0.0

After Clean My Mac scans for "junk", you can deselect folders/files you want to keep from the detailed list of what it found, before having it remove everything else.  I'm pretty sure you can also add files/folders to an ignore list in preferences so it never acts on them again. It works fine, but in my experience, it's initially a little aggressive on what it wants to remove.
