OmniDiskSweeper for Mac
March 10, 2018
Requires macOS 10.12
OmniDiskSweeper 1.10 introduces “Trash” as the new default behavior, addresses macOS High Sierra compatibility issues, and fixes several bugs.
OmniDiskSweeper 1.10 requires macOS 10.12.
- Trash — Replaced OmniDiskSweeper’s Delete button with a Trash button, which will move files to your Trash—which is where you can go looking to recover any files you might realize you need back. If the selected files are already in your trash, it becomes a Destroy button with a big warning sign. (You can also get to the Destroy button and menu item directly by holding the Option key, if you’re really sure that’s what you want to be doing.)
- Errors — OmniDiskSweeper will now report any errors it encounters while attempting to trash (or destroy) files. If it realizes up front it can’t delete some of your selected files, it will disable the Trash button rather than waiting for you to press the button just to report errors about those files.
- Folder Drop — Dragging a folder from Finder and dropping it onto the OmniDiskSweeper app icon will now calculate that folder’s size.
- App Icon — OmniDiskSweeper v1.10 has an updated app icon.
- Drive List — APFS volumes are now recognized as local volumes rather than being categorized as network disks. (System volumes marked with the “don’t browse” flag are automatically skipped.)
- Sandboxing — Updated to enable sandboxing and declare the system access OmniDiskSweeper needs.
- macOS Compatibility — OmniDiskSweeper has been updated to support macOS 10.13 (High Sierra).
- Package Listing — The list of packages a file belongs to has been broken since Sierra (possibly earlier) due to changes in the location of package receipts. This list is once again fixed, and a new
ReceiptFolders hidden preference can be used to control which folders are scanned (or to disable scanning altogether on systems where receipt scanning takes too long).
