OmniDiskSweeper for Catalina Available!

by Brent Simmons on October 9, 2019

OmniDiskSweeper 1.12 is our free app for finding disk space on your Mac — and we just updated it for Catalina (macOS 10.15)!

It shows you everything on your hard drive, ranked by size, so you can see which files and folders are taking up a lot of space — which helps you figure out what you can delete, or move somewhere else, so you can free up disk space.

The updates for Catalina include a Dark Mode About Panel, fixed handling of Catalina volumes, and removal of an unneeded notification.

But do note that Catalina will ask for permissions for OmniDiskSweeper to access various things — it might ask, for instance, if it can access your contacts. This is because it’s looking at the sizes of all your files, which includes the files that contain your contacts.

But it’s not actually reading your contacts, files in your Documents folder, and so on — it’s just looking at file sizes.

Read the release notes for the full scoop!

And go reclaim some space on your hard drive. :)
