**** MacWorld Favorite Mac Gems 2012
"FreeSpace’s systemwide menu shows all mounted volumes along with the available free space on each; if you want to monitor a particular volume, you can choose to have that volume’s free space displayed right in the menu bar."

"FreeSpace is a tiny menubar utility that can show you how much space is available on all local, connected, and network drives with a single click."

Two great features

The notifications when a disk/thumbstick is mounted or unmounted are great. MacOS can have a notable lag between when you physically initiate an action (plug something in, or press "eject") and when the device becomes available (to work with, or to physically remove); this app's notifications tells you when something has actually happened so that you can actually proceed. Extremely useful.

On my space-starved laptop, it's very useful to always see the amount of fee disk presented in the menubar.

5 stars for usefulness.

Thanks for writing for FreeSpace. It is an indispensable app written for myself and I use it everyday in every of my Mac. I am so happy that many users like it as much as I do!

Great app, one request

I use this all the time and recommend it to lots of other people.

Recent change made space available number consistent with what the finder shows. Thanks for the change! I noticed however that the second APFS volume on the same disk shows the old number rather than the new finder-consistent value. Please consider making them the same. Thanks for listening. Since there is no support channel, this was the only way to communicate.

Under shared APFS volume, Finder's value is not always consistent with the value in Disk Utility. The current 1.4.0 FreeSpace version reports the value from Disk Utility with unused + purgeable space combined. I find the shared APFS volume value in Finder can be bigger than this combined value after several local snapshots and trash emptying. This bigger value is proven to be wrong since macOS prevents me to copy anything bigger than this space from other volume.

Speedy access to open eject drives. HIghly recommended!

Indispensable. Lists all drives, DMGs or external; eject individual drives with a single click each or all drives with one click. Or, you can easily open the drive from the Freespace list. Gone are the days I needed to move app windows to find a drive on the desktop or to open a folder window to get to the drive list on the sidebar. You can set up Notifications to show each ejection.

Developer Response ,

FreeSpace comes in handy when you have a list of drives. They are all click-away under your menubar!
