Uninstall Diablo 3 Open Beta and Reclaim 5GB+ Disk Space
The Diablo 3 Open Beta was a lot of fun and certainly got everyone excited for the May 15 public release, but now that the Diablo III Beta client can’t be used any more it’s time to uninstall the app from your Mac. This will free up at least 5GB of disk space. Follow the manual uninstall instructions below, or use something like AppCleaner to automate the deletion process:
- Navigate to /Applications/ and move the “Diablo III Beta” folder to the Trash
- Navigate to ~/Library/Preferences/ and delete “com.blizzard.diablo3.plist”
- Go to ~/Library/Caches/ and remove the entire “com.blizzard.diablo3″ folder
- Open the ~/Downloads/ folder and remove the original installer “Diablo III Beta Setup.app” and the accompanying archive “Diablo-III-Beta-enUS-Setup.zip”
Now empty the Trash to remove Diablo 3 Beta from your Mac completely, freeing up quite a bit of disk space. If you want to find more wasted space on a Mac, check out our guide to using OmniDiskSweeper.
These instructions are the same for the original Diablo 3 Beta client as well if you were lucky enough to be a part of that.
