DaisyDisk for Mac4.21.3

19 October 2021

Free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting big, useless files.

What is DaisyDisk for Mac

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.

DaisyDisk > Prefs tell me that it's got full disk access, but it invariably asks for my Admin password. (I've questioned this numerous times and have been ignored.)

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?
