The best storage analyzer for Mac.

Running out of disk space? Need to know what is taking the most space in your storage? Analyze your storage usage with Disk Space Analyzer.

Disk Space Analyzer finds the biggest files and folders that eat up precious hard drive space. You can scan your disk file structure, analyze the remaining disk space and view your files and folders with an intuitive sunburst-like diagram.

Unused files might be taking up a significant amount of your HD space. The application displays each folder size. Bigger folders are visualized larger in the diagram, making it fast and simple to find the bulkiest data and do a disk cleanup.

When your disk is full and you have low memory space, use the drive space visualizer to view your Mac disk usage and then remove unused stuff from your computer.

Use Disk Space Analyzer to:
• Analyze disk space usage on Mac
• Get disk usage visualization
• Find out what is taking up space on your Mac
• See the list of the largest files and folders
• Easily navigate through folder directories
• Keep your Mac startup disk clean from old unused files
• See purgeable storage size

Disk Space Analyzer can scan all types of volumes:
▹ Hard Disk Volumes
▹ SSDs, CD and DVD disks
▹ Flash drives
▹ External storage disks
▹ Mounted DMG volumes
▹ and even folders with FileVault protection

The Mac disk analyzer provides a visual scanning mode with the scan results shown in real-time. You can view a small progress bar on the dock icon which displays the scanning progress. For every disk item, the utility provides a QuickLook Preview, a possibility to get additional detailed information and view the item in the Finder.

Best features:
◇ Progress bar during the scanning process
◇ Navigating folders during the real-time scan
◇ Quick Look for the scanned items
◇ The Show in Finder option
◇ The list of 8 biggest items
◇ Outline view for navigating files

I love it

Excellent apps for a quick assessment of your Mac and things that you need to clean up. I have seen many videos with multiple steps on how to clean your Mac. And you know. most of them have multiple steps. check here for that and check there for this. Sometimes. they suggest complex steps to just clean the mess. I don't have time to become an Apple expert app utility monitor engineer cleaner in 1hr or 2 hrs. many of us have a home to clean. cut the grass, do homework. study for an exam. work on our honey do list, etc. I want something that help detects the extra stuff not needed and then "poof'. get rid of it.
That is what I want simplicity in the mist of chaos. Thanks for developing such simple app.

Incredibly Easy to Use and Effective!

I don't usually write reviews but I felt compelled with this little gem of an app. If you want a fast, comprehensive breakdown of where exactly your disk storage is coming from, look no further! The interface is very user friendly, one click to scan. The color breakdown makes it quite easy and straightfoward to nail down where your problems in storage hogging media / applications may lie, and it allows you to easily navigate through the folder heirarchies with seperate color, pinwheel diagrams.

What this does, it does extremely well. It's a steal at $2.99 on the app store right now. Already paid for itself. Personally I nailed down 50 GB of unndeeded disk hogging right after my first scan. Doesn't explicitly say in the description, but it does work with SSDs no problem.

If you want to know exactly what is taking up space on your harddrive in a streamlined, easy to use and asthetically pleasing manner, look no further. Recommended!

no hidden files

This app would be perfect if it showed hidden files. The explanation in the help docs is that it "Does not show you hidden files and folders for stability reason. It's possible to delete system files and folders if user is new to Mac OS X, better just not to display them.” is annoying. If you’re actually worried about that then provide an option to show them. Somewhere burried in the hidden files in my home directory is 12gb of wasted space, too bad I can’t find it.

Other than that one very big issue this app is great. Its fast, has a great interface that lets me drill down quickly and find problems.

I’m a web developer so I often deal with big databases, applications that cache data and I forget to clear it, or big virtual machines I forget that I have created. This app finds all that and finds it fast. Thanks. Please just display the data for my hidden files too. At least the ones in my home directory.
