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.

Pros

Quickly and easily visually see what's taking up space on hard drive.

There are no cons. It's free and easy to use.

"I got back 56 GB of storage!"

April 28, 2014  |  By kimigomez

2014-04-28 21:17:00  |  By kimigomez

 |  Version: Disk Inventory X 1.0

Pros

Really easy to use. I'm just a basic computer user, no special skills. Showed me visually (little colored map) exactly where my storage was being used (hidden core dump files). I had been checking all my folders and the usage just didn't add up to how much storage was actually being used...After using this wonderful program, I was able to get back a significant amount of storage!!

Cons

I couldn't delete more than one core file at a time within Disk Inventory X. This was probably a safety feature, and there was probably an easy way to show the hidden files in Finder, but I certainly didn't know it. Other than that, I have no complaints.

Summary

I wholeheartedly recommend this program. Effective and easy to use if you have even a bit of common sense.

Full Specifications

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).
