Editors' Review

OmniDiskSweeper for Mac comes in a powerful little package and makes the cumbersome job of searching for large and unused files fast and easy. The application performs as intended and offers a rock-solid solution for anyone needing more free space on their Mac.

After an easy installation, OmniDiskSweeper for Mac presented us with a list of hard drives attached to our test machine, and we selected the internal 500GB drive. A new window appeared that populated with a list of folders and files, with their respective sizes listed right next to the name. The full sweep completed in under five minutes. The largest folders top the list with sizes color-coded: gigabytes in purple, megabytes in dark blue, and kilobytes in green. From there it was easy to drill down into each folder, zeroing in on the largest and most useless of files. In another five minutes we had freed up over 45GB of space. Remnant DMG files in our Downloads folder automatically saved, but unneeded Mail attachments, and old documents all unwittingly took up space. We were also able to identify another 25GB of files and folders that will need further scrutiny before we delete them for good.

OmniDiskSweeper for Mac significantly speeds up the process of digging through your hard drive and looking for unused and large files. This application is highly recommend for any Mac user, even for those who haven't yet approached the danger zone of limited free space.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.10
  • Trash — Replaced OmniDiskSweeper’s Delete button with a Trash button, which will move files to your Trash--which is where you can go looking to recover any files you might realize you need back. If the selected files are already in your trash, it becomes a Destroy button with a big warning sign. (You can also get to the Destroy button and menu item directly by holding the Option key, if you’re really sure that’s what you want to be doing.)
  • Errors — OmniDiskSweeper will now report any errors it encounters while attempting to trash (or destroy) files. If it realizes up front it can’t delete some of your selected files, it will disable the Trash button rather than waiting for you to press the button just to report errors about those files.
  • Folder Drop — Dragging a folder from Finder and dropping it onto the OmniDiskSweeper app icon will now calculate that folder’s size.
  • App Icon — OmniDiskSweeper v1.10 has an updated app icon.
  • Drive List — APFS volumes are now recognized as local volumes rather than being categorized as network disks. (System volumes marked with the “don’t browse” flag are automatically skipped.)
  • Sandboxing — Updated to enable sandboxing and declare the system access OmniDiskSweeper needs.
  • macOS Compatibility — OmniDiskSweeper has been updated to support macOS 10.13 (High Sierra).
  • Package Listing — The list of packages a file belongs to has been broken since Sierra (possibly earlier) due to changes in the location of package receipts. This list is once again fixed, and a new ReceiptFolders hidden preference can be used to control which folders are scanned (or to disable scanning altogether on systems where receipt scanning takes too long).
