Disk Map - Visualize Hard Drive Usage and Free Up Space
By FIPLAB Ltd
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Disk Map makes it easy to visualize the files and folders that are cluttering up all your internal and external storage drives. It enables you to quickly locate, delete or compress large files and folders and reclaim valuable space.
The app quickly scans your drives to build a stunning visual treemap display of files and folders on your computer, allowing you to easily navigate through your file system and find out what is taking up the most space. You'll be surprised how easy you can find large files and folders that you never knew existed or had forgotten about!
• A gorgeous retina-optimised UI design
• Support for scanning both internal and external hard drives (including selected folders within these drives)
• Zoom in/out of folders
• Open files/folders in Finder
• Quick Look support
• Five beautiful and pleasing treemap colour schemes to choose from
• Ignore specified file formats and folders
• Specify a minimum file size to scan for
• Compress files at the click of a button
• Delete items to Trash Can or permanently according to your requirements
• Hide/Show system and hidden files via the app's preferences
• Hit the Reload button to refresh folders without the need to perform a new scan
We've worked hard to make Disk Map as simple and efficient as possible for you to use. We would love to hear your thoughts via email and make any improvements to future versions of this app. We intend to have an active development cycle powered by your feedback, love and support!

Poor User Experience
The main reason I bought this is that I thought it would be faster than the free alternatives, it’s actually marginally slower. It should be instant using the B-tree catalog file and/or spotlight index. But the really annoying part is that it constantly nags me to purchase other apps. Also, why do I have to click Next after it’s finished scanning? Trivial, but unnecessary. It also doesn’t have a full screen option. Once you finally get to the main window, it’s slightly better looking than the free options. UPDATE for version 2.0: It’s even slower now (10 minutes to scan 5% of a very fast 256 gig SSD). And the nagging advertisements are even worse, they added one more ad dialog box. UPDATE for version 2.1: I think they’re just releasing new versions to hide the bad reviews of their nagging ads. I can’t even tell what is different anymore.
It’s nice and quick and does a good job of showing where there’s a mess of stuff taking up space.
Sadly, the developer is following the trend of shoving a startup ad in your face now and again for their other offerings. No one wants that. Ever. Stuff like that makes me trash apps, even ones I’ve paid for.
