Ratings and Reviews
Useful, but avaialable space issue is annoying
This is a great program and I use it on all of my macs. One annoying issue is the fact that the available space in freespace is different that what the Mac is showing is available. I understand that the developer is showing the "true" free space on the disk, but it would be nice to have the option to view either value... what Apple says is free space or what this developer says is free space.
The eject feature is awesome and makes it so much easier to find and eject disks from the desktop, but it is a bit of a bummer that despite many cusotmers brining up the issue of the discrepancy in free space values, I wish the developer would be willing to just give everyone what they're asking for.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your support for FreeSpace. Your Mac is in APFS and contains hidden snapshot. The latest FreeSpace version 1.4.0 should solve your concern.
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.
Developer Response ,
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.
