    Does anyone know what specifically qualifies as "Old Updates" in the Clean Drive Tool? Specifically, are these MacOS update remnants or Parallels update remnants? How old must the update be to qualify as an "old update"? I'm wary of using the tool if I'm not sure what it's actually identifying for removal.

    Hello FrankI1.
    To assist you better, please take a screenshot of where you see the section named 'Old Updates' and reply with the same.

    Hi @FrankI1, these are updates cache for iOS devices from the following directories:
    ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
    ~/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
    ~/Library/iTunes/iPad Software Updates

    I have forwarded your feedback to Product Management team, I believe we should make it more clear for users ('Old updates' in particular).

    I second that. Actually, for each and every one of the items in the list we should be able to open Finder and see exactly what files would be deleted before we have the peace of mind of clicking on the button "Clean Up". Tks, Raphael.
