DaisyDisk overview

DaisyDisk allows you to visualize your disk usage and free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting big unused files.

The program scans your disk and displays its content as a sector diagram where the biggest files and folders at once become obvious. To drill down to a folder, just click on a segment. To bubble up, click in the center. Move the mouse over the diagram and see the name and path of each file, and enclosed files (if any). Hit Space to quickly preview file content, without launching another application. In this way, walk around your disk and drag-and-drop all unneeded files into the "collector".

FALSELY listed as 'malware': For those concerned: Version v4.21 of DaisyDisk was the victim of a FALSE POSITIVE by some of the less scrupulous anti-malware programs. It was listed as "Agent.G" or "PuAgent-CD" or similar Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP or similar category). All versions of DaisyDisk, except v4.21 have NOT been so identified. - - I wrote to the developer about the false positive of version 4.21. Here is his response: - - "It has recently come to my attention that some AVs are relying on a self-proclaimed third-party service called Appesteem which chose to include DaisyDisk in their list of so-called “deceptor” apps. By the “deception”, as it follows from their website, they mean that DaisyDisk locks some of its functions in the free trial mode. As ridiculous as it sounds, Appesteem refused to remove DaisyDisk from the said list, even after my detailed explanation, and proceeded to feed this list to the AVs, which seems to have caused the problem. The “pup” simply means potentially unwanted programs. For the moment the best solution would be to unblock DaisyDisk manually in your antivirus. I will think about what else can be done in this regard." - - NOTE: At this time, the false positive was only triggered version 4.21. Any other versions of DaisyDisk will NOT set off lame anti-malware apps. - - BTW: If you have an anti-malware app that was set off by DaisyDisk v4.12, I personally suggest you get a better, more discerning brand.

Not crazy how it handles APFS partitioning. I want to quickly know how much space each partition uses. About this mac is far more clever doing that.

It's NOT a sector map. It's just a pie chart. Not that they claim that it is, but it's funny how people will pay for something because subconsciously they think it's something that it's not. This app will not help with fragmentation, or anything else. It just shows file sizes in a way that tricks your brain into thinking it's your disk. You could dump your file list into any charting program and get the same thing.

v 4.10 still can't scan the data partition of my boot volume. Grand Perspective CAN! Wha't keeping DD? DD also returns incomplete results for a clone I maintain in the same container as my boot volume. Newly improved, though, DD gives me complete results for my clone in another container. (Is there a way to get paragraph breaks in my posts?)

This is an excellent app, with a bonzo interface. I've used it for years. It has kept up with changes in the macOS, which is remarkable in itself, when so many of the apps I use have been abandoned. In particular I used it to find the large sleep image files that were eating up space on my small startup partitions. I finally learned how to prevent the creation of those files, but it took a while for the solution to turn up. Not only does DD show you your files, but it enables you to locate them (until APSF started hiding stuff more securely). There are other apps that show your files, like GrandPerspective, but I think DD is superior.

v 4.9 still cannot see the data portion of a System/Data pair. Grand Perspective has no such problems, so what's wrong with DD?

I won't give DD a star review, because although I'm pretty sure that what I'm about to complain about is its fault, it may be an inherent problem with Catalina...or it may be a combo of the two. DD is unable to see Catalina's system & data volumes as a complete unit, even my boot volume, so it doesn't find, at the least, /Library. GrandPerspective doesn't find everything in my clones, but it does find everything in my boot volume. Happily, I got DD on sale for only $5.

This 5 star rating is to help offset the 1 star rating posted on Mar 17, 2019. I donl't believe that the user who posted that review understood that one can 'drill down' through the folder structure until each individual file is as large a section of the pie as you want. As for whether a pie display is the most efficient...well given that the average macOS disk has literally MILLIONS of files, I think the graphical display is the only way to go. Navigating a traditional Finder List View doesn't give you the instant feedback that pie section gives you regards relative size of a file compared to files around it and above it in the hierarchy. To each his own. I've tried all the 'file and disk size comparision' apps; this one is the best and very quick response when navigating.

DaisyDisk Has been the Gold Standard for visual drive exploration. Please note that you can now do this with CleanMyMac X and other applications, but Daisy Disk has a certain "Aroma and Grace" that you just can't beat.

I don't know why this app is so famous? Because the FIRST one app is using a Pie Chart? I won't buy it again, if someday an upgrade needs to pay. Reasons: 1. A pie chart is so beautiful, but it's not a good solution. Especially there are a few small pieces, because your cursor is very hard to touch this small pieces to show the information. 2. Now, there are a lot of apps about Disk, and they are also using a Pie Chart, and their price are cheaper or free. Thanks.

This is one of those apps that might make you think to yourself as you use it, "Why don't all apps work like this?" I really don't have a serious criticism to offer. Very intuitive, fast, even helps you take the garbage out to the curb. My only caution would be to second the advice from an earlier reviewer to get the non-MAS version as it is more complete (It has safeguards against deleting critical system etc files so no worries.) That version also gives you a trial option. If you try it you'll buy it IMO. Top notch utility

J'ai testé l'application DaisyDisk sur mon ancien Macbook pro (mi-d-2012) dont le système High Seirra 10.13.1 est installé. DaisyDisk démarre rapidement avec le système et il ne ralentit si pas le CPU ni le RAM de mon Macbook. Le design ainsi l'interface de l'application DaisyDisk permettant d'avoir une décomposition visuelle de votre espace disque sous la forme d'une carte interactive, de révéler les plus gros gaspilleurs d'espace, et de les retirer avec un simple glisser-déposer. Les options de l'application sont multiples mais ce que j'ai aime beaucoup le plus : c'est l'option dans le menu qui te permettre se découvrez ce qui se cache dans la catégorie "Autre" et de l'effacer. Aussi il te permet de récupérer de l'espace disque en trouvant et en supprimant de gros fichiers inutiles. À la fin de mon test-je donne 5 étoiles et je recommande vivement l'achat de cette application
