GrandPerspective

Version 2.5.4

Graphically shows disk usage within a file system.

GrandPerspective overview

GrandPerspective finds those giant files that suck up your disk space.

GrandPerspective is a small utility application for Mac OS X that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system. It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space. It uses a so-called treemap for visualization. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size. Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary.

Great app! The best in its category. The visual representation is very well thought. The downside of all these tools is that once you've identified the biggest files in rather static drives and you've deleted the unwanted ones, they become quite useless... But for your main drive it's still useful to check from time to time.

Very good product... but when I start the new version, the messages are in Dutch. I expected to have them either in English or in French (language of my version of Mac OS). And I don't see how to change that.

An absolutely wonderful program that gives you a "birds-eye-view" of everything on your hard drive. The interface can be very intimidating at first, but after some time working with it, I find it extremely easy and intuitive. It's also just fun to scan someone's hard drive, and wow that at my ability to immediately see what is taking up what space :)

Good storage visualization app for years, but the latest update (2.1.0) causes it to crash during scanning. A second attempt caused an immediate crash. Running on latest Mac OS 10.14.2; previous version of GP (2.0.0) still works correctly. Fix this bug and you have a 5-star review.

When I try to scan a single partition of my APFS container, GP shows the entire container, and my preferred partition winds up squashed into a relatively useless small box because it's small in relation to the entire container - 20 GB of 500 GB.

Love this product, been using it for years. It's easy to use and reliable. Ever wondered why you only have 5GB free space left on your SSD? Scan your Mac with GrandPerspective and find out in minutes.

An extremely useful app that gives you a birds eye view of everything on your hard drive, organized and color coded. It takes a little bit of getting used to how to read the "map" that GrandPerspective creates, but once you get the hang of it, it is an invaluable tool.

Good app. Oddly a free download from developer (via SourceForge) or a $1.99 purchase in the Mac App Store.

I'm impressed with this. It has a lot of features, such as the ability to color files according to multiple indicators like creation age, age of last access, file type, etc. It also has some kind of filtering, which I have not tried yet. It apparently lets you look inside packages. And so forth. The Macupdate "download" box does not work, but the download file is on the author's web site . I will spend more time fooling with the options and the interface. I have not tried DaisyDisk, but I can't imagine it does much more than this free program.
