Disk analysis tool that automatically detects all volumes connected to your Mac
At launch, DaisyDisk scans your system and then provides a list of locations that can be analyzed. You can easily start a scan for an entire volume, but DaisyDisk also offers you the possibility to scan specific folders.
When the analysis is over, the application automatically generates a graphic representation to help you understand which files take up the most space. DaisyDisk assigns various colors to large items or folders, and offers you the possibility to browse the directories in an hierarchical manner.
Effortlessly identify large junk files and clean up your disk
For your convenience, DaisyDisk includes support for the Quick Look plug-in so you can easily preview files, but also offers you the option to see them in a Finder window. This way, you get to easily decide if you actually need the file, or it has been simply forgotten on your disk.
To streamline the cleanup process, DaisyDisk allows you to send certain items to the “Collector” panel and then quickly delete the files from within the app, with a simple mouse click. The good news that you get to review the file list before launching the removal process, so you cannot accidentally delete files you need.
Beautifully designed disk analyzer featuring hierarchical graphical representations and intuitive clean up tools
DaisyDisk is a very useful tool that can show you in an user friendly manner what files are taking up large chunks of storage space, and then helps you decide if you still need them or not. The app also includes simple tools for previewing and deleting the unwanted items, so you can easily clean up your volume without going through the Finder.
