OmniDiskSweeper is really great at what it does: showing you the files on your drive, in descending order by size, and letting you delete them easily! It scans your disks as quickly as possible and shows you the facts - if a file doesn't make the cut to stay, just click the big Delete button and be done with it. It's a fast, easy way to find those large files cluttering up your drive and clearing them out for new, better things. Make sure you want them gone, though. There's no going back.

What's New

Version 1.9:
  • Fixed a common crash on OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
  • More Responsive: OmniDiskSweeper is much more responsive when scanning a slow disk. (The interface used to block while scanning the list of files contained in a folder, which could cause very long pauses when scanning slow disks.)
  • Faster Scans of Remote Disks: Switched to scanning directory contents using API that only more...

Requirements

  • OS X 10.8 or later

I use this app since its very debut and can't lived without it. I'm a graphic designer and my HDD is full of very large modified images and countless variations of the projects, so about twice a year, I do a major cleaning of my Mac to saves lot of space.

What I like is that with a simple scan, its fast and easy to know where some cleanup is needed. Version 1.9 is noticeably faster than 1.8, which was already fast for scaning my 1 TB HDD.

I mostly trash files via the Finder though, because I examine every one of them to be sure they are all unneeded. When its done, I rescan the disk to see how much space I just save.

WARNING VERY BAD BUG!!!. It sometimes destroys the parent folder of the selected item NOT just the selected item. NOT good!.

I attempted to delete selected .svn folder and rather than doing that it destroyed the parent folder and ALL contents.

Bad design: It needs to display the name of the selected item it is going to destroy!

-Jean

I would far prefer an option to just move the selected items to the trash rather than for it to do non undoable damage.

I just want to claify, did this happen with the latest 1.9 version and did you have the same problem with previous versions? It would be helpful to know whether this is a new problem or not.

I just started using OmniDiskSweeper, and I think this interface is perfect for drive clean-up. Nice app.

Good work! If it could set different colors to separate the system files and users files or caches would be more perfect!

App is awesome and price is right -- use it regularly to find space savings easily and quickly. Omnigroup is great -- I have used their apps since the NEXTSTEP days!

Been using this app for a long time and loved it. However ever since my company forced me to use file vault on my macbook pro, it stopped working. Will it ever be updated again?

Well, Omnidisk apparently hasn't been updated on Lion and keeps freezing/ not responding when I try to delete some cache files under the new operating system. So it looks like this is on the way out. Shame, as this was a simple, effective piece of Mac software.

@Bigboysdad According to http://roaringapps.com/apps:table/tags/_o/index_tags/_o, OmniDiskSweeper works well with 10.7.

Thanks, M.Luther, I did give it another go and it works ok most of the time, but before reading your post I looked around for alternatives and settled on Diskwave and DaisyDisk which may be overkill for some, but provides everything you need if you have to keep emptying out your HD.

I love this ap! Quickly helps me find what is hogging my disk space, and for free, it can't be beat! Just be careful when you hit the "destroy" button in the ap, make sure you want it gone...
