DaisyDisk

Recover disk space

VIEW

DaisyDisk is an easy, efficient way to do a little spring cleaning on your Mac. No matter the season, the app makes quick work of clearing away documents, photos, downloads and other files that have accumulated over time.

With your permission, DaisyDisk scans your Mac’s storage drive and makes deleting whatever you don’t need effortless, and even a little fun! DaisyDisk displays a colourful, interactive graph (known as a sunburst map) of your system and personal folders, ranked by how much disk space each is taking up. There’s also a text-only list, if that’s more your style.

A sunburst map helps you visualise what’s monopolising your hard drive.

Simply click around the graph to drill down to the folder or file level, then drag clutter to the Collector area at the bottom of the window. (Or type Command-Delete.) This unassuming space tracks everything you plan to delete and tallies the total space you’ll recover once you zap all of it away.

DaisyDisk excels at quickly scanning your hard drives.

Rest assured that files aren’t erased until you click the red Delete button (you can’t miss it). And you can easily remove only a specific file or folder; or start over entirely using the Action> Remove all items from Collector option in the menu bar.

DaisyDisk works with external hard drives and USB sticks too. Plug one into your Mac, and DaisyDisk will offer to scan it. Whether you’re looking to eradicate gigabytes of forgotten .dmg files or just want to keep your Documents folder tidy, DaisyDisk is one of the more polished utilities for the job.
