Disk Expert also lets you gather files and folders into collection, enabling you to rapidly move them to another place, or even delete them.

So there is this new app - Disk Expert - which is fine. I won't comment on the fact, that it looks quite similar to DaisyDisk (from what I can see on the screenshots - I didn't d/l DE). What is beyond my belief though is the pretty dim-witted way of trying to get a high rating by having four friends (or might this actually be just one person?) sign up on MU and have them post 4.5-/5-star reviews the very same day version 1.0 gets released. All of them (except one) have only rated DE, the exception being one member who has rated four apps - and guess what: three of those apps being from the same developer (of DE, that is). And best of all they then all exchange smilies among themselves. C'mon...

The app provides a great visualization of the disk usage, so it's easy to find the biggest or the oldest unused files.

More copycat software. Doesn't do anything which DaisyDisk doesn't do better. Support original developers and not the clone and burners. What's worse at Jo* points out below, apparently Nektony are better at seeding fake five star reviews than writing original software. When will MacUpdate crack down on dishonest developers?

I had problems with a full Disk. With Disk Expert, is was easy to find the biggest files. Suddenly it happens, that with each deleted big file, the free disk space becomes less, not more. It was caused by MobileBackups. It is mounted at /Volumes/MobileBackups but not shown? The hidden dir is located on the root disk, also not shown? It would be nice to show the /.MobileBackups directory too as the /.Trashes is shown and counted. see too: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204015 http://classicyuppie.com/what-crap-is-this-os-xs-mobilebackups/ http://www.cnet.com/news/disk-utility-showing-less-available-space-than-the-finder-in-os-x/

I'm not sure why you'd pay $15 for something that does little more than the free - and much more attractive looking - GrandPerspective

I guess Disk Expert may offer more, but I find OmniDiskSweeper quite useful when I really need to get rid of big files fast.

It does just what I was looking for and does this perfectly - is it not all that I need?
