Description:

Find your "space eaters" the biggest folders and files on all of your Mac disks or drives.

Unused files might be taking up significant amounts of space.
Disk Inspector allows you to locate the biggest files and folders that eat up precious space across your Mac disks and drives.

Disk Inspector scans the disk file structure, analyzes the remaining space, and represents your files and folders with intuitive sunburst-like visuals. Bigger items are larger in the diagram, making it simple to find large files.

Disk Inspector scans: Hard Disk Volumes, SSDs, CD and DVD disks, Flash drives, External storage disks, mounted DMG volumes, and even folders with FileVault protection!

Disk Inspector has a visual scanning mode, and results of the scan are shown in real time. A small progress bar on the dock icon displays scanning progress.

You can obtain additional information for every disk: whether or not the disk is writable or bootable, what the file system type is, and the disk’s connect protocol. For every disk item, you can use QuickLook Preview, get additional detailed information, and show the item in Finder before deleting or move unused files.

Note: All hidden files are displayed as a single item in the diagram.
If you need to preview even system hidden files & folders use our advanced clean up scanner - Disk Expert (see a link in “More Developer’s Products").

Features:
• Animated scanning process
• Real-time display of inspected files & folders during scan
• Progress bar during scanning process
• Detailed information about disk
• Information about files 
• QuickLook for files
• Copy path for the item
• Displaying the folders structure, skipping free space
• And even rotate the resulting diagram!

OS X 10.11 El Capitan compatible.

Excellent (And Extremely Fast) - This amazing tool found 100GB which I thought were required but were installed by Apple's Server application which didn't need to be there. It helped me locate exactly where they were and helped me save precious SSD space. Thanks Nektony! (The gorgeous UI is intuitive and simple to understand as well.)

Useless - This app is completely useless to me because it doesn’t show hidden files. I knew exactly how much music I had before purchasing this utility, thanks. It’s the 120GB of hidden files that I’d like to analyze.

Review by jonj99

no hidden files - This app would be perfect if it showed hidden files. The explanation in the help docs is that it "Does not show you hidden files and folders for stability reason. It's possible to delete system files and folders if user is new to Mac OS X, better just not to display them.” is annoying. If you’re actually worried about that then provide an option to show them. Somewhere burried in the hidden files in my home directory is 12gb of wasted space, too bad I can’t find it. Other than that one very big issue this app is great. Its fast, has a great interface that lets me drill down quickly and find problems. I’m a web developer so I often deal with big databases, applications that cache data and I forget to clear it, or big virtual machines I forget that I have created. This app finds all that and finds it fast. Thanks. Please just display the data for my hidden files too. At least the ones in my home directory.

Review by arctickid68

New to Mac….I appreciate this app. - I recently purchased a MBP retina with a 500Gig SSD. It’s my first venture into the fray of the world of Apple (which I have wanted to do for years). I have had a bit of a time switching over and it seems that file navigation is my number one issue. This app really lays it out in an easy to understand (and find) format. Because my Mac is less than 2 months old, the app really didn’t find any hidden ‘hogs’ that I didn’t know about, but I can see the true value in this app and appreciate the intuitive ‘wheel’ it uses so you can really home in on what’s using up your storage space. I recommend this app to anyone who wants a very fast and accurate breakdown of what and where is on their storage device. Well done!

Exactly what I needed - I'm using this app right now and it's amazing! I have so much used space on my mac and I had no clue how to find it, 200gb of movies didn't make sense, but this app broke it down and helped me find everything that was taking up so much space! worth every penny
