    "WARNING SPAM COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    August 24, 2013   |   By msessler

    Version: WhatSize 5.3.2

    Pros

    After understanding what this program can do for you I decided to get myself a license. The first thing that made med react was the fact that it wanted my creditcard information within the application. Never seen this before... The second and more obvious big W A R N I N G is that it actually asked me to access my adress book. Why for any reason would it need it. Why whould I give it access to it? Reports of major spam from this company has been reported. Dont buy it! Dont give it access. Actually it should be banned from any serius download site! W A R N I N G!!!!!!!!! W A R N I N G!!!!! W A R N I N G!!!!!

    Cons

    "I love this program!"

    June 09, 2013   |   By mikeamick1

    Version: WhatSize 5.3.2

    Pros

    It makes it really easy to see what's taking up the most room on your hard drive, so you can decide what to get rid of to give you more space. Very intuitive design.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to select "open file or folder in finder" before you can move it to trash.

    Summary

    The best program I've used for figuring out what's taking up all your hard drive space. I don't know what the reviewer from April 2013 is talking about - I paid for my version, didn't get any spam.

    "** WARNING ** You'll start receiving tons of SPAM!"

    April 03, 2013   |   By billyant

    Version: WhatSize 5.3.2

    Pros

    Works okay, but...

    Cons

    I downloaded the free version and then went to upgrade to the unlimited version. The first clue was when their payment gateway asked for access to my address book. Immediately afterward, I started receiving tons of spam on an email account used to be spam free. They're all formatted similarly as images with links. I'm really PISSED!

    WARNING - DON'T BUY!!!

    Summary

    WARNING - DON'T BUY!!!

    You'll start receiving all sorts of SPAM!

    "I saved 15 GB of storage space using WhatSize"

    January 21, 2012   |   By jaykappmeier

    Version: WhatSize 5.2.1

    Pros

    It is easy to use. From launch it analyzed my boot drive and quickly sorted the files by size with colors for each size range. I can navigate to the files by double clicking on any file or folder. The column display allows for easy expansion into more detail down to the file level.

    Cons

    Nothing significant

    Summary

    If you are wondering why your hard drive storage space is disappearing WhatSize is a very good place to start. It provides an easy to understand breakdown of all the files on your hard drive. You can navigate to files from within the app saving time and effort.

    "Not a good program to use for finding duplicates"

    May 12, 2011   |   By mikbek66

    Version: WhatSize 4.9.10

    Pros

    Works well to determine sizes of files.

    Cons

    Find duplicate file function is almost totally useless. Requires user to manual review all duplicates and only provides one practical option, move to trash. When you have large numbers of duplicates like 175k, their program is functionally useless.

    Summary

    I use the program when in beta it find and size files. Great at that. When they went commercial they added find duplicates but it is functionally useless. User must manually review groups of duplicates and remove those not wanted manually to trash. No meaningful way to filter duplicates such as keep oldest or newest copy and delete rest. Also no way to move duplicates to anyplace but trash so you can use other programs that have better filters. Lastly, can only move 2000 duplicates to trash at a time. Not worth $12.50 unless you need to find size of files only.

    "Great little app for cleaning up your hard drive"

    March 02, 2010   |   By clandise

    Version: WhatSize 4.9.2

    Pros

    Very simple to use with a nice GUI.
    Especially useful for revealing any space grabbing invisible volumes created by cloning software like CCC by Bombich.

    Cons

    It seems a little slow at times, but that could be just because it is often used on crammed drives.

    Summary

    A simple way to look thru your drive for useless files and delete them easily right from the app.
