"Succinct, accurate, & attractive space tracking utility"

March 28, 2010  |  By jjnoel_dotmac

 |  Version: GrandPerspective 1.3.1

Pros

Effective visual utility for finding out what's taking up all that space with ability to find in the Finder and delete files on the fly.

Cons

Opens up with no active windows. Not a big issue but sorta leaves you wondering what you did wrong on launch.

"Ideal for visual thinkers, vividly shows file sizes"

March 14, 2010  |  By cbsofla

 |  Version: GrandPerspective 1.3.1

Pros

Simplicity, clarity, effectiveness, usefulness. The scan brings up everything in proportionate size. I can zoom the range in and out.It helps especially finding large files that I can decide to archive externally, freeing up disk space.

Cons

None. So I'll add on the Pros: it even offers a variety of color schemes.
And this isn't a con, but *IF* you don't like colored quadrangles, Omni Disk Sweeper presents the same data, in column view. Equally effective if you prefer lists to shapes.

Summary

File management will always matter, no matter how large our drives or other storage devices become. GP presents file size data quickly, clearly, and actionable. I even found it fun to poke around and see how things compare.
