Have you ever wondered where your disk space has gone to? That massive hard drive on your laptop; you know the one that you thought would never be too small. After a truck-load of RAW images have been downloaded, you can find that your down to the free space “danger level”.
Typical the space-hog culprits are media files, temporary files or cached content. More to the point – they can be anywhere! Here’s a blurred-out image from the UI; you can see where all my space is!
OmniDiskSweeper helps by performing a complete sort of all files on your disk drive; largest to smallest. Pick the drive and hit “Sweep”. OmniDiskSweeper is a good CPU citizen, too. It can run happily in the background while you continue working.
In my case I find that my personal folder is often where the unwanted files reside; so I navigate to that folder first, speeding-up the process. As of version 1.7 the application is free and you can also delete unwanted files directly from the interface.
Download this little application and give it a go- you’ll be surprised what it shows-up!
A must for any Apple Mac user.
