Day 30: OmniDiskSweeper

This post is part of a larger series where for 31 days I’m posting a story about a particular product or service I’ve come to enjoy.

When choosing software for this series I particularly get a kick out of linking to products I suspect many might not know about. With that in mind, tonight I present OmniDiskSweeper!

OmniDiskSweeper is a little app from the OmniGroup they’ve been distributing for years that let’s you scan a hard drive and sort every folder by the size its taking up. OmniDiskSweeper is a great tool to use when you are trying to figure out how to trim down your hard disk usage.

I currently have an iMac whose main system drive is a 256 GB SSD and between my Dropbox, video games and video editing work it’s very easy to fill up. Using OmniDiskSweeper I quickly figure out what needs to get deleted or migrated to my external media drive when free space gets too small.

OmniDiskSweeper is a free download. Enjoy.
