DaisyDisk allows you to visualize your disk usage and free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting big unused files.

The program scans your disk and displays its content as a sector diagram where the biggest files and folders at once become obvious. To drill down to a folder, just click on a segment. To bubble up, click in the center. Move the mouse over the diagram and see the name and path of each file, and enclosed files (if any). Hit Space to quickly preview file content, without launching another application. In this way, walk around your disk and drag-and-drop all unneeded files into the "collector". Expand more...

Awesome! Simple app for one thing I need from it - show me where is my disk space lost!
The one more-less issue is scan speed - would be cool to get it faster.

Actually, we've highly optimized the scanning process and according to our tests, DaisyDisk is the fastest among the competition. Typically it takes only about 20-30 seconds to scan a SSD startup disk or a couple of minutes on HDD. It may take much longer on a Time Machine volume, due to the large number of files (20 mins and more). If you are experiencing issues with scan speed try to run Disk Utility's Repair Permissions and Repair Disk commands, you may have issues in the file system.

Thanks for your feedback!

I like this app since Version 1 and it's one of my essential mac apps. It does it's job perfect, it's stupid simple to understand and the user interface is very beautiful. Should be part of OSX IMHO :D.
Also the developer is very responsible = good support.
(On request he/they even gave me a free non-MAS license after i bought the MAS version and sent him/them the receipt. That's very kind of him/them i think. Also check out the app "unclutter" from this developer, it's very useful on my macbook air.

My positive view of this software can be seen in my review below, but it'd be really good and save time if you could select more than just one folder to delete.

Right, and we are working to add multiple selection and improve keyboard navigation in the sidebar list, in future versions of the app. For now you can use Cmd+Backspace keyboard shortcut, to make collecting files a little faster. Thanks for your feedback!

Daisy Disc may cost more but it is well worth the money. I have both Grand Perspective and DaisyDisk and Ireally like the pictorial Graphs of Daisy Disk butI have a lot of trouble figuring out what the pictorial representations of Grand Perspective actually represent.

Nice to see the new design, and disk scanning feels faster. As always this has such a great UI, very easy to quickly drill down to find files to remove and clean. Developers are very communicative and responsive.

Looks like version 3.0 is out.

Currently, it appears that registered users of 2.x are still treated as registered users of 3.0 meaning it looks like a free update. This applies to non-app store versions. I don't know about app store versions.

Yep - can confirm that...DaisyDisk 2.x licences work with v.3 :-)

Yes, this is a free update for all existing users of version 2.x, both stand-alone and Mac App Store editions. The stand-alone keys are the same, no need to update them.

Thank you! Great app too and a very decent price as well :-)

I'm using Daisydisk for some days now and since I installed it, I cleared 40 Gbyte of disk space (which is a lot on a 320 Gbyte hard drive).
Most of the files I found with this app were files I didn't even know of.

10 Gbyte were left by an iMovie project I messed with a year ago and just forgot about it.
Another 10 Gbyte were lying around in an archive in a subfolder of a subfolder of a subfolder as a backup I made and forgot to delete.
The other files were old music files I copied when I migrated from my old PC to my Macbook. I didn't even listen to one of those files in about 2 years so obviously I didn't need them anymore.

The UI speaks for itself. I love the circles and the animations and how the app visualizes the disk space in use.
As some people below pointed out, there are free solutions but in my opinion they don't come anywhere near Daisydisk regarding speed and ease of use.
