Wonderful way to visually represent your MacBook Hard Drive!

Haven’t tried to delete anything yet; however, what an awesome way to see everything on your MacBook—and I mean everything! I did take advantage of offer to download more thorough scanning version of app from their website (free). Love the way I can just hover over each segment to see exact breakdown of what is in that segment and space allotted. Kind of like peeling away layers to get to deeper and more hidden levels. For example, in Dropbox, it lists photo albums, then each photo taking up space on my hard drive. Looking forward to using app to clean out unwanted files. Had to write review right away though—extremely impressed with DaisyDisk!

See Everything on Mac

Especially with the SSD bringing storage capacity down, Daisy Disk rocks! The disk scan take less than 30 seconds, and it charts everything on your Mac, showing what is taking up how much room. I run the scan at least once weekly to make sure I haven’t bogged down the system anywhere. Worth the money!

Indespensible

I have to admit that the UI takes a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it’s much faster to drill into and out of direcotories that eat up your disk space to see what the offending files are than it is to do in other disk audit apps I’ve used. Well worth the purchase.
