Disk Inventory X for Mac

CNET Editors' review

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.

    March 19, 2013  |   By qelan

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    Scanned my hard drive in a reasonable amount of time and showed me where my space had gone.

    "Accurate, intuitive"

    March 16, 2013  |   By johnro52

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    The visual interface is much better than the few others I've seen for Mac (e.g., DaisyDisk)
    Gave me an idea instantly of where I need to go to optimize.

    Cons

    I didn't see any

    Summary

    Excellent, simple product.

    "Very good utility, easy and intuitive."

    November 27, 2012  |   By ETmacUser

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    Shows exactly what is needed to understand the size of each file/folder, along with its name and reference.

    Cons

    Should show the free space on hd too, optional the real location of the files (i.e as older utilities did in '90). But all the way it works very fine.

    Summary

    A simple and useful utolity.

    "Brilliant!"

    February 7, 2012  |   By fishygrrl73

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    Showed me EXACTLY what I needed to know in an amazing graphics display. My hard drive is full, so I needed to know what to move - Disk Inventory X 1.0 was free, easy to use and gave me all the information I needed. I am so happy right now. Have to go move 10,000 photos now! See ya!

    Cons

    There are no Cons in my opinion.

    "Perfect for people with full hard drives"

    September 21, 2011  |   By ianai

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    Shows exactly what you have at a glance, can sort by size so you see the biggest things first, allows you to open folders, and even delete things right from the graphical window.

    Cons

    A little slow, even after it has read every file (which is obviously limited by your disk speed and how many files you have). It has crashed a few times, but rarely and does not hurt anything when it does.

    Summary

    If you have a hard drive close to capacity and do not know why, this tool is essential. I found files I forgot were there taking up 10s of GB of space.

    Much quicker and easier than (for instance) du or Finder's Get Info.

    "Wonderful software to SEE what is taking space"

    August 28, 2011  |   By dogfish--2008

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    You can see the size of items, some of which you would have no idea could take so much space. It color codes them by file type. You can delete them from the interface. It has always worked flawlessly for me.

    Cons

    It shows things to you that you probably shouldn't mess with so be sure you know what you are doing.

    Summary

    Get it. It is the best way to clean out things that are big and taking space. It is fascinating to see what file types are taking up so much space.

    "It does what it says get rid of the junk files."

    July 14, 2009  |   By forthex_low

    Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

    Pros

    this seems to be doing a better good at identifying junk than an automated type of cleaners. I have been looking for something to help me and because it gives you a visual representation of everything that makes those massive temp files etc.

    Cons

    nothing yet

    Summary

    Its free its reliable and it has NOT screwed up anything. so I will not complain.
