OmniDiskSweeper for Mac
Delete with an Iron Fist
OmniDiskSweeper is really great at what it does: showing you the files on your drive, in descending order by size, and letting you delete them easily! It scans your disks as quickly as possible and shows you the facts — if a file doesn't make the cut to stay, just click the big Delete button and be done with it. It's a fast, easy way to find those large files cluttering up your drive and clearing them out for new, better things. Make sure you want them gone, though. There's no going back.
View your files
When you start OmniDiskSweeper, it presents you with a list of disks attached to your machine. Double-click on one, and a new window opens with a column view listing every folder and file you can access, which it sorts by size as you watch.
The free space on the disk and the ordering of the folders are automatically recalculated as you delete the old, space-hogging stuff you don't need anymore.
Smarter than Finder
Sure, you could do this with the Finder, but OmniDiskSweeper makes it easier. Since the directories and files are sorted by size, you get to quickly zoom in on the big files that are taking up all the space—and not worry about the thousands of tiny ones that aren't hurting anyone.
Latest release: July 23 2012
OmniDiskSweeper now requires 10.6.8 or later to run.
- OmniDiskSweeper is now a 64-bit app, which means it can handle much larger sets of files.
- File sizes are now reported using standard metric prefixes (1 kB = 10^3 bytes = 1,000 bytes; 1 MB = 10^6 bytes = 1,000,000 bytes) rather than using binary-based prefixes (1 kB = 2^10 bytes = 1,024 bytes; 1 MB = 2^20 bytes = 1,048,576 bytes).
- Lion’s automount folders are no longer displayed in the network drive list.
- OmniDiskSweeper has a new app icon!
- The app is now signed with Developer ID so it works well with Gatekeeper on Mountain Lion.
- Fixed the crash on launch when running on Snow Leopard.
