Technical Description

When the program is installed, it creates the following folders:

  • /Applications/JustCloud.app/Contents/MacOS
  • /Applications/JustCloud.app/Contents/Framework
  • /Applications/JustCloud.app/Contents/Resources

The program then creates the following files:
  • /Applications/JustCloud.app/Contents/Info.plist
  • /Applications/JustCloud.app/Contents/PkgInfo
  • ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.JustCloud.notify.plist
  • ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.JustCloud.autostart.plist
  • ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.JustCloud.backupstart.plist

The program is a cloud storage platform that lets users back up their files. When it's uninstalled, it does not remove ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.JustCloud.autostart.plist, which is responsible for loading the application when the user logs into their computer.
