Ratings and Reviews
Daisy Disk Clears Purgeable Space
I’ve been using DaisyDisk for a couple of years now and have always been impressed with the slick interface, which makes me just want to open it to take a look. DaisyDIsk also has the ability to drill down into the detail, and then explain those details through very helpful web support. However, now there’s an additional reason to like DaisyDisk. I recently updated to High Sierra and even more recently developed issues with Purgeable Space occupying so much of my main drive that I became worried that I was going to have to either upgrade to a larger disk, or make some major changes to my workflow to accommodate. But, after doing a bit of digging around on the internet I found out that DaisyDIsk can remove Purgeable Space and make it available as free space once more. Just right click on the Purgeable Space displayed by DaisyDisk after doing an Administrator Scan. On my MacBook Pro with a 500GB drive I had 113 GB available prior to sorting out Purgeable Space and around 262GB after. A major improvement.
Spot space hogging files easily
My MacBook was warning me that I was running out of space. I used the built in System Information storage management to clear out quite a lot and thought that was as much as I could do. I then saw DaisyDisk advertised on the app store so gave it a go. I wondered whether it would be a stupid move - adding more software to an already full Mac but it wasn't. I managed to delete an additional 40Gb of stuff (the DaisyDisk app is only 6Mb). I really like the way that it presents it in a visual style - a sort of pie chart of files - so you can see what takes up the most space. I had huge applications installed that I'd used once and then forgotten about and this highlighted them where I hadn't spotted them in Mac storage management. It's very quick and easy to use. I'd definitely recommend it.
Well worth the money
I hesitated buying this for a long time as it seemed over-priced at £10. It’s not quite impulse buy. However, Mac drives are getting smaller and smaller and I was running out of space fast. This immediately identifed a lot of things I could delete in a very painless way. Well worth that £10. Use it every week or so to trim space here and there. If you are running out of space and always struggling to find things to delete, and want quick answers, this is what you want. Don’t wait, get it. My first review, that’s how good and useful it is.
