This is a great program. Very useful for finding huge files. It would be nice if there were some way to go from the file or directory listing to a finder window. Right now, after I find a huge directory to prune, I have to manually navigate to the same directory in the finder. It would be nice if there was a way to do that automagically.

What a mess. Required to install Java. Then still would not run on Mojave.

Using OS X 10.9.2 and JDiskReport version 1.4.1, I get this msg - Unable to load Java Runtime Environment. This does not happen with version 1.4.0

I resolved it by re-installing JRE (jre-7u51-macosx-x64) from java.com Al Maloney

I just checked, and this is up to version 1.4.0 now (since Dec. 2011).

Hopefully the developer will release a Universal build so Rosetta isn't required on Intel systems

Wow. I have a distinct bias towards Java apps because they're usually slow, ugly, non-Mac-like, etc., but this was a pleasant surprise. While there are certain column list behaviors and other bits and bobs that annoyed me, such as the peculiarly basic and vastly unMac file dialog and the very unMac... kinda ugly "toolbar" icons, in most ways that really count it does it's job more than adequately. It scanned one of my larger, more cluttered drives very quickly, and I must admit JDR's simple sorting, graphing and statistic functions and displays are nice. It has a surprisingly rich set of prefs. While the appearance themes technically aren't terribly important, they're a great idea for a cross-platform app, and i'm sure had i been forced to look at icons and heirarchical lists that looked like windoze, i'd have torn into the app on that account. I own DaisyDisk and I suppose i'll be sticking with it's OS X flash, but this unique little FREE app is impressive.

Great ! .. Fast ! ... Easy to understand ... I've tried a few other similar programs but jdisk is far superior in my mind. Great pie chart of your disk .. then you can hit the top 50 button .... and boom! ... you can see exactly what's eating up your hard disk space. I hope this app stays around .. it's worth paying for ...

I just discovered JDiskReport and have to agree that it's the best of its kind, emminently more useful and practical than the others of its type. Grand Perspective and Disk Inventory X, for example, may offer a prettier graphical display of one's hard drive but so what, they're not as functional. This one's extremely intelligently designed.

By far the best app in this category. I tried others like Grand Perspective and Disk Inventory X, but neither offers the features and functionality of JDiskReport. Highly recommended!

Simply my favourite tool when I need to find out where all the space has gone... Scans my MB drive filled with 50GB in a bit more than 3 minutes.

I couldn't agree more that this is an excellent application but it's missing one very important feature --> "Reveal in Finder" or something along those lines. You can find which files are a problem, but if you want to delete or move the, you've got to open a Finder window and navigate to the file the long way and then do something with it. Only limitation with this program that I can see. I love the pie-chart display of file sizes (also the bar charts) - makes the most sense to me over all the other ways these kinds of programs show file sizes. Just needs one small update to make a world of improvement to what is already a great program.

Wow! This is an incredible little gadget you have there. Up until now, I used "Show Volume Fragmentation" which was free too but so many things were hidden from the program. With JDiskReport, I found that Garageband was taking 3 GIGAS of space, and I didn't even use it! In one day, the space on my Mac went from 16G left to 26G left. Thanks! The only problem is, its a bit slow. Took me an hour to scan my Hard Drive.

:) A few more files for sure, but it's been spending hours going through my OS X Mail folders. I cancelled it 11 hours into scanning though as it appeared to be partially frozen (the timer was still going, but the directory/file counter hadn't changed for at least 2 hours). It would seem that it doesn't do well with huge mbox files -- which is a little curious since I would have thought it would have considered the mbox as a whole instead of looking at each e-mail inside it. Oh well.

Hmmm... this appears to be a really handy utility if you're like me and have a hard drive packed with stuff. The software seems very well put together and the interface has a cool twist in that it lets you use the graphs as a mean for navigating around the directory structure (in addition to a standard tree-view method).
