Disk Inventory X is a free disk utility for Mac OS X that gives you a summary of your disk usage, both in text and visually. Need to know how much space is being taken up on your drives by photos or audio files? Disk Inventory X will give you the answer quickly.

The program is easy to install, and its interface is clean. When you run it there's a simple disk selector dialog, which expands to a larger window. A standard hierarchical view of your drive in the left pane shows you the total size of each folder or file. In the interface's right pane is a colorful graphical representation of the types of files on your drive. Each file type is color-coded, so you can see how much space a particular type of file occupies. If you want to see all the tags and information associated with any file or folder, you need only click on it and a pop-up shows all the information the OS has on the item.

Disk Inventory X worked fine for us, and gave us a handy view of our disk usage. The graphical interface lets you see at a glance how much space is used by particular file types; for most people video and audio files will be the majority. Considering Disk Inventory X is a free app, this would be a useful addition to any Mac system.

What's new in version 1.0

new features:

  • Finder context menu plugin with a "Open in Disk Inventory X" command for folders and volumes (have to be installed manually in the preference window!)
  • a new selection list which can show all files of a specific kind or all files (to show the selection list, use the new context menu in the kind statistic or select menu "Window->Selection List").
  • an option whether the assignment between colors and file kinds are shared between open windows or not (so every kind has in all windows the same color - like before - or the assignment is done for each window separately)
  • performance improvements when dealing with a large number of files
  • sortable columns in the kind statistic drawer (and in the new selection list, of course)
  • a warning is shown prior deleting a file or folder on a network volume (items on a network volume can only be deleted, not moved to trash)

bug fixes:

  • DIX crashed when refreshing a file or files if DIX has zoomed into a folder
  • the "select parent" shortcut did not work if the file view had the focus: the shortcut is now changed to Apple-U (previously Command-P).
