Simple and powerful
I’ve used this to calculate sizes of folders on external storage which stalled in finder and said “calculating size” forever. As well is this, super useful for finding the junk that’s taking up space on your startup disk. Super intuitive and simple to use.
Really polished application, presents information in a really clear way.
Simple. Beautiful. Functional.
The title sums it up. I’ve been using DaisyDisk for years to find and clear out my junk. It’s easy to spot big space hogs and then drag the ones you no longer need to the collection point and when you’re done a single click gets rid of them all. It even makes errors look pretty. I just did a cleanup and DaisyDisk didn’t have sufficient permission to delete some files but it gave me a bright warning and a nice list of what it had troubles with.
I also find DaisyDisk the clearest way to identfiy the numerous hard drives I have hanging off my Mac as it lists all of them along with the type and capacity. A while back I asked the vendor to make Thunderbolt-attached disks report as such and they got it sorted pretty quickly.
I highly recommend DaisyDisk if you want to keep reclaiming your drive space. It’s almost fun when using DaisyDisk.
