Disk Inventory X

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

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.

Wow, is 2010 over already? Time flies fast and 2010 is no exception. There were lots of ups and downs both personally and professionally. But nevertheless, it was a fun year and a lot of positives to take from it.

  • Completed 5 years at Yahoo!
  • Did my first full marathon. And in general was very active with running.
  • Read a lot and I hope I can put things that I learnt to use in my life.
  • Have definitely improved my Carnatic music listening skills
  • Travelled a lot.

I hope 2011 is even better.

Here is wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous new year 2011. Hope 2011 brings a lot of joy, happiness, health and peace to each one of you.

Keep your frown upside down and enjoy life.
