When determining how space is divided on a hard drive, some, more visual users may want a way to have the information represented graphically, rather than in numbers. While simple and of limited overall use, GrandPerspective for Mac is a good option for those looking for a different way to analyze folder and hard drive space.

Download and installation of GrandPerspective for Mac completed easily, but it only contained a basic readme file with no dedicated instructions, which was a detriment due to the complex nature of the program and its interface. It was also unclear if technical support existed. The program's main menu allows users to select a folder or drive to analyze. After a short time of analysis, the program brings up a two-dimensional image with different size squares, each representing a file on the computer. Users can click on each square and press a "reveal" button that tells what it is and brings up a finder window showing its location. This allows the file to be deleted to free up more space. The folder can be rescanned with a click of one easily-identifiable button.

For those users who want a different way to view hard drive or folder usage, GrandPerspective for Mac performs its stated functions well, despite its limited functionality and lack of user direction.

Developer's Description

GrandPerspective is a small utility application for Mac OS X that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system. It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space. It uses a so called tree map for visualisation. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size. Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary.
