What's New in Version 4.2

- Fixed a bug that caused timeouts on network disks.
This app has made cleaning up files so much easier. In a matter of weeks my computer had a TON of space gone. Other programs only clear cache files, but this shows you the breakdown of what is taking up so much space. That made it so much faster and simple to clear off 27GB off of my laptop. I only have 256GB total on my SSD, and this allows the SSD to run faster and longer. Clearing un-needed files is always a good thing for the longevity of a computer :) The interface is easy to use, and I am really satisfied with the program. The cost is way worth it. It looks like they have spent considerable effort making it user friendly.
Excellent way to find and manage data
I really love the interface used to break down all your data and how you can drill down into the different sections. For example, on my Mac I can click on the section for iTunes and then drill down into the different media categories, such as music, TV shows, and movies. Then it can list all the movies by size and I can see which are taking up the most space. I basically have my 512GB hard drive filled most of the time so this app allows me to see what I have and then see where I can clear up space. Awesome app!
Beautiful, Useful, Intuitive
If you have a Macbook with a limited hard drive, you need this program. Daisy Disk radically simplifies finding space hogs and eliminating them. It’s been a staple on every Macbook I’ve had in the last six years, and it’s so good that I get mad that there’s no decent Windows alternative every time I fill up an SSD on a Windows computer.
Using Daisy Disk is incredibly better than manually poking around with Finder or piping du -hs * to a file and trying to do some Excel juju to figure out what to delete to get my disk back.
