Baseline for Mac1.5.3

06 August 2009

Tells you what files are taking up your disk space.

What is Baseline for Mac

Baseline tells you what files on your Mac are taking up the most hard drive space.

Unlike other Disk sizing apps, Baseline can also tell you what has changed since you last scanned your disk, and show you only those items that have changed.

You can view your files in a Finder like list or browser view, or graphically, as a TreeMap.

Baseline can also search for duplicate files on your hard disk, to save even more space.

You can delete, compress and archive files directly from Baseline, making tidying up your disk a snap.

What's new in Baseline

Version 1.5.3:
  • much improved AppleScript support
  • new shortcuts
  • improved Tiger compatibility

Baseline's 'tree map' view is terrible. However, its the option to identify duplicate files, delete or compress same and identify files that have been added to your HD since Baseline's last scan (all of which is done through it's 'Finder') that demonstrates this application's power and differentiates it from the free alternatives out there. Generally speaking, if your HD is small by today's standards and at least 70% full, saving disk space wherever possible is a necessary chore. In that regard, this application is a necessary and justified purchase.

The Developer seems to have either died or just collects money for registration and nothing else. I posted a question in the Baseline Forum on Apr 1, i.e. 3 wks ago, concerning a problem I was having. There was a message to say that my post would have to be checked before being displayed. It has not yet appeared. While in the forum I saw -- to my astonishment -- that there had been a reply to a previous post I had made in June ‘09. The gap between that post and the Developer's reply, in December '09, had been SIX MONTHS. If you find that unbelievable see http://forums.mildmanneredindustries.com/showthread.php?t=1665 I was one of the first to pay for this app when it first appeared, and I praised it repeatedly in several forums. I have myself resolved the problem I reported on Apr 1 (and, no, it wasn't a joke!). I am DISGUSTED. Note that I am not complaining about the app. I am warning folk not to expect any service from the "Developer" in exchange for registering. Andreas

Haven't tried it enough for a full review, but i'm really liking the baseline idea and the duplicate finder. On the downside, most treemaps are ugly and this one is just horrible despite the highlighter and info box. The lack of coloration and orderly horizontal and vertical divisions reduces it to visual clutter. I certainly wouldn't recommend the modes of other apps, either. $20 is a bit steep when you can get *most* of the functionality for free.

Incredibly fast scan. I'm not a fan of tree maps, though, and this one is much more difficult to read -- at least for me -- than those produced by GrandPerspective and DIsk Inventory X. I prefer the charts used by WhatSize and DaisyDisk. The list view fortunately can show items sorted by size, because the column view doesn't. No, excuse me: there's a bug -- or at least a poor UI decision. Column view sorts by the sort setting for list view. There are no sort controls in column view, so it's not immediately apparent how to change the sort for column view. The UI otherwise beats the two free apps I mentioned; that, along with its additional features (baselines, duplicate finding) may justify its price.

I know it's taken a long time in coming, but Baseline 1.5 now supports selecting and deleting multiple files or folders. Undo support is present as well (until you empty the wastebasket or rescan the volume), in case you accidentially delete the wrong stuff.

Hi Xplicit A new version of Baseline that addresses the issues with deletion and useability is coming soon. We've already got most of the requested changes in place, but are still polishing and debugging. cheers, Martin

The app runs stable and scans disks quite fast. On the contrary working with it in a fast and productive manner is not possible: -> No shortcut for deleting files -> Command-Backspace empties the trash (not like the finder) -> multiple selection of files is not possible -> every deletion (of a single file) must be confirmed, this behaviour cannot be changed -> no live updating of changes by external apps (by the finder for example) 20 bucks is too much for such a tool, especially if it's limited in its usability like this one.

Certainly there has to be done some work on the usability of this app. Instead of moving files to the trash "Command-Backspace" empties the trash. A shortcut for deleting files is missing completely. Dear developer, why would you do that?
