Daisy Disk 4.5

DaisyDisk is a smart little utility to help you manage your Mac’s drive space. I’ve been DaisyDisk on my Macs for a long time. Recently they updated to version 4.5

The initial reason I liked DaisyDisk so much is the user interface. It uses a series of colorful concentric circles representing your drive space which is both pleasing to look at and easy to understand. 

Over the years, the application got more and more powerful, making it even more of a natural recommendation. With the most recent update to version 4.5, they’ve gone entirely in with Apple’s new APFS file system. I’ve been using the latest version, and I like it. The DaisyDisk team also put together an interesting article about the top five challenges with APFS and how they solve them. 

If you’ve never heard of DaisyDisk, this is a Mac app worth checking out.

DaisyDisk is Half Off


DaisyDisk is still my favorite disk storage management tool. I’ve been using it for years with zero problems. The application has the best user interface of any disk management tool I’ve ever used. Not only is it attractive with its concentric circles, it’s also the best way I’ve ever seen to convey disk storage information. Now that we all have SSDs in our Macs, this is a handy tool on your belt.

Recently the App got a rewrite that dramatically improved the scan speed and gave the user interface an El Capitan-friendly paint job. Best of all, it’s half off, just $4.99, now through Monday.
