WhatSize

7.3.2
02 December 2019

Find out what files are taking up all your HD space.

Overview

WhatSize allows you to quickly measure the size in bytes of a given folder and all subfolders and files within it. You would be surprised at how many useless files might be laying around on your hard disks. The files and folders are automatically sorted by size, with the biggest sizes first. WhatSize helps find out what files are taking up all of that space. Then it makes it really easy to remove or move those files. You'd be surprised how many useless files are lying around on your Mac's hard disk.

While the app is measuring a folder the user can browse the files within that folder and immediately see the size in bytes. Hidden files, cache files, directories will all show up with their corresponding size. This application is similar to the ancient NeXTSTEP, DarkForest.

Once the measuring of a folder has ended the user can also view the information by filtering for particular file sizes or types. The user can also move unwanted files and folder in the corresponding Trash bin similar to the Finder's Delete button.

I've been using WhatSize since version 5. It's great software to keep up with the usability, performance, and hence the life of your storage devices. I absolutely recommend it !!

It's my go-to app for finding out what is using up disk space. Glad it's been updated to work with Mohave!

$30 is, IMO, overpriced for a file/disk size utility. I used to use WhatSize, but then DaisyDisk appeared, which is only $9.99. The graphical display of Daisy Disk, IMO, superior, allows very quick understanding of what is taking up large space, and allows for very fast drill down. Granted Daisy Disk will not find duplicates, and if you prefer the Finder List View presentation of WhatSize, then fine, but is that worth $30.

No upgrade-path from WhatSize 4/5 (though it was in a bundle, its a full license), so no deal for me.

The upgrade offer on their site worked for my email address: £14.99 for the latest v7.

I have to agree. I originally purchased Whatsize 5 as part of an 18-app bundle for $11 total. I really liked it and it was a great value at <$1. (At the time, it was frequently on sale for $6.49.) When version 6 came out, the developer wanted $15 just for the upgrade (while the competition was selling outright for $4.99). The developer did occasionally offer a 50% discount to NEW customers, but never discounted the upgrade price for EXISTING customers. $15 was far too much for just an upgrade (which didn't work all that well for me when I trialed it). The competition was still readily available for $4.99 – and I got it for far less. Again, I'd HAPPILY upgrade to WhatSize 7, if the price were more inline with the competition (say $5-$10), but the developer doesn't even offer upgrade pricing from V5, and there's no way I'm going to pay $30 for it, let alone $15. Sorry.

Useful utility - have used it extensively in the past, but I can't justify USD$30 (about $48 Australian) for a one-trick pony, no matter how useful. I don't use it near enough to justify that when I use Pixelmator (same price) daily.

Clever and useful utility. I occasionally use it, but when I do, it's always fun. The graphic imaging is so cool. It visualizes storage beautifully. No issues to report. It's just fun to use.

Since when? They put out as huge upgrade in Jan 2017, so how do you know that they have stopped updating since the? One of the developers answered a comment here in Feb '17 . I am seroously asking this question as I need to upgrade but won't if What Size really isn't being developed anymore....

Bluelemon9, I purchased this app about two years and half ago, and I haven't seen much improvement and bud fixes until the last big upgrade you mentioned. It is still slow and at times buggy, but I like it and I would probably upgrade in spite of its somehow sluggish performance.
