Disk Inventory X is a disk usage utility for Mac OS X. It shows the sizes of files and folders in a special graphical way called "treemaps".

If you've ever wondered were all your disk space has gone, Disk Inventory X will help you to answer this question.
What's New
Version 1.0:
  • Finder context menu plugin with a "Open in Disk Inventory X" command for folders and volumes (must be installed manually in the preference window!)
  • a new selection list which can show all files of a specific kind or all all files (to show the selection list, use the new context menu in the kind statistic or select menu "Window->Selection List").
  • an option whether the assignment between colors and file kinds are shared between open windows or not (so every kind has in all windows the same color - like before - or the assignment is done for each window separately)
  • performance improvements when dealing with a large number of files
  • sortable columns in the kind statistic drawer (and in the new selection list, of course)
  • a warning is shown prior deleting a file or folder on a network volume (items on a network volume can only be deleted, not moved to trash)

bug fixes:

  • DIX crashed when refreshing a file or files if DIX has zoomed into a folder
  • the "select parent" shortcut did not work if the file view had the focus: the shortcut is now changed to Apple-U (previously Command-P).
Version 1.0:
  • Finder context menu plugin with a "Open in Disk Inventory X" command for folders and volumes (must be installed manually in the preference window!)
  • a new selection list which can show all files of a specific kind or all all files (to show the selection list, use the new context menu in the kind statistic or select menu "Window->Selection List").
  • an option more...
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

Highly reccommended to check your drive for files taking up space. This software made it easy for me to localize a lot of huge files that I did not need any more.

Disk Inventory X is the best of both worlds, giving you both text listings of files and folders as well as graphical representations. The only feature I can recommend would be the ability to select multiple files within a folder for deletion.

Written too much today to be too erudite.

Lots of great easy-to-use features here though the treemap and icon ARE ugly. Customizeable colors would be a start.

An update with Quick-Look integration would be brilliant!

This was an invaluable tool for me to find a hidden volume of old video crap (75 gigs!) and delete it. Thanks for freeing up my hard drive to process everything!

For anyone who comes from OS 9 and has used disk surveyor in the past, this app is a bit confusing graphically (only files are displayed graphically, and not folders sadly). I have also used an app called Disk Sweeper which I thought was more intuitive, and Grand Perspective which I thought was faster to load and used less CPU.

You're wrong. Folders are indicated graphically with a yellow borderline around the files contained inside that specific folder.

Both correct, in a way.

When you click a folder in the left pane you get the outline of the folder, but if you click a file in the treemap, you don't get any indicator showing the size of the folder, as in some other apps.

doesn't get much easier than this...seriously. I used it, and 20 minutes later have cleared 20GB away of *stuff*.

This app is superb! It's amazing how something so simple can be so jaw-droppingly useful... I freed up 6GB on my 40GB iBook the first time I ran it, on superfluous spuff that I didn't have any idea was eating up that much room.

This app is a "must have".

Ever felt the need to know where your disk space is going? Having been a faithful user of SpaceMonger for Windows, I've been on a lookout for similar tools on other platforms and this is a stiled-up version for OSX: It lets you uncover how iLife and GarageBand is filling up your hard drive and how old iPhoto-catalogs are claiming gigabytes.

I can but recommend this program. If you make it a part of your Mac life, consider donating.
