Disk Inventory X

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Last week, I ran out of space on Mac. I had less than a gig left and the system started complaining that my boot disk needs cleanup. I did not know where to start the cleanup from and was looking for something similar to the Disk Usage Analyzer for Ubuntu. My search led me to Disk Inventory X and this has made my life easier.

Some of the significant points of the tool

  • Displays disk usage based on directory and kind.
  • Displays the size as a treemap.
  • Ability to filter files based on kinds. This feature came in really handy when I sorted by name per kind, resulting in easily identifying duplicates.

The only gripe I have is that, when I delete a file from the window, it takes a while. This is probably because, the tool apart from deleting the file, also recompiles the size, location, etc.

Give it a spin, if you run out of disk space.
