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

This is not a review per se, it is a discussion of the class of software
to which this program belongs. As a public service to the MacUpdate
community, I've found as many of these "cleaner" apps on this website as
I could and listed them them below. (I did a search for 'cleaner'.) If
MacUpdate will let me, I intend to post this every time a new or updated
version of one of these things shows up on this site. There are 38 in
the list, and it seems like new entries in the 'Mac cleaner' market
space pop up every day, metastasizing like a cancer. Unfortunately, more
is not better. They are all of dubious value. Many have no reviews at
all. Many have what look to be essentially fake 5-star reviews with no
useful commentary. Many -- probably the most accurate and honest -- have
negative reviews, by users who have been burned by them. Most of the
developers' descriptions boast about what a great job they do, but the
truth is, there are no good, comprehensive, head-to-head reviews of
these programs by impartial 3rd parties. True experts in macOS
maintenance advise against using any of them, because in general they
serve little useful purpose and they can easily do more harm than good.
Macs simply do not need "cleaning." (See for example:
https://www.thesafemac.com/the-myth-of-the-dirty-mac/) Some of these
programs are notorious for being little more than malware. The user is
well-advised to read any program documentation and make a RELIABLE
BACKUP before attempting any changes. If I have missed any programs that
should be on the list, please leave a comment and let me know. I will
rate all these programs with one star, probably one more than they
deserve. And I would appreciate comments. If you disagree, please speak
up. But if all you can come up with is 5 stars and a sentence or two
saying that program X is great and I don't know what I'm talking about,
please save your breath. No one here will take you seriously. And I
apologize for the almost unreadable formatting, a severe limitation of
MacUpdate itself, which compresses maximum text into minimum space,
leaving no whitespace for readability. :: BEGIN LIST: : Aooro : App

are 1) TinkerTool System, a true bargain priced at only $14 for a single
license. TinkerTool System is a an exceptional piece of quality
engineering, safe when used properly, and superbly documented, with
in-depth tutorials for every option. 2) OnyX, from Titanium
Software, another excellent developer. 3) I have used Northern Softworks' "Cache Cleaners" in the past (the latest being "Catalina Cache Cleaner," which I have not used) and their products are first rate. As for the rest, listed above, it is safe
to say that nobody who really knows what they're doing with Macs and
macOS will touch them. Don't get sucked in by a pretty interface. You
may very well regret it. -SB

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

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...
