Search Big Files

By Dirk Einecke

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Ran out of space on your hard drive? Not sure which big files consume most of your valuable disc space? No problem: "Search Big Files" will help you to rid your hard drive of unnecessary data garbage.

The usage is extremely simple:

1. Launch "Search Big Files".
2. Select the entire drive or a specific folder.
3. Specify the minimum size of the files to be searched.
4. Click “Search”.

The selected drive or folder are immediately scanned – fast and efficient. The result list shows you all the files that match your specifications. Use the context menu to display a marked file in the Finder, pass it to Spotlight or – of course – delete the file.

"Search Big Files" does not create an index for the searched drives or folders. Thus, no additional drive space is consumed. You may scan internal and external drives as well as network drives. No files are deleted automatically. You have full control!

Please note: Issues posted to the reviews cannot be addressed. If a problem should arise with the application, please use the support link to the right.
