What an amazing app. The interface is incredibly simple, yet intuitive. Helped me free up a ton of space taken up by "system" category on my mac which was incredibly annoying. Would buy again.

Had Problems at First But Great Developer Response

I was running low on disk space and a friend recommended I purchase DaisyDisk. He's a trusted friend so I did. After running the app it showed "440GB Hidden Space". This didn't help me figure out how to clean up my Mac.

I contacted the developer and in less than 12 hours (a weekend at that!) they got back to me. They were very helpful explaining how Mavericks may have added a few complexities and helped walk me through various steps to see what the issue was. Now that I'm done with that I can start playing around with the rest of this...great support!

Developer Response ,

It looks like you have inadvertently denied DaisyDisk access to your documents, when macOS asked. Please go to System Preferences, Security & Privacy, Privacy tab and add DaisyDisk to the “Full Disk Access” list, then rescan in DaisyDisk. You see, macOS Mojave additionally protects privacy-sensitive areas of your disk, such as Photos, Calendar, Contacts etc. Even though DaisyDisk does not read the content of your files, but only their sizes, Mojave still needs your explicit permission. Otherwise all those data will be counted as “hidden space”. Unlike the system tools, DaisyDisk gives you detailed visual breakdown of your disk space, allowing to highlight and delete the biggest files and free up space at once. Please contact our support if you need additional help!
