DaisyDisk is 30% off

I mentioned DaisyDisk as my favorite tool for seeing what’s using up space on my hard drive in yesterday’s roundup, and it happens that there’s a 30% off sale on it right now. Good timing.

DaisyDisk scans any folder (or entire disk), then shows you a circular diagram displaying with segmented rings representing all of your files. Hovering over a segment will show categories of files and folders and their total size. Then you can drill into any part of your drive by clicking a segment to show content details.

You can use the built-in QuickLook preview to see what you might want to get rid of (you can also reveal in Finder to take a closer look). There’s a collection drawer where you can stage files (or entire segments) for trashing. Once you’ve browsed through and collected things you don’t need, one click clears them out.

It’s a great tool, and definitely the most elegant in its category. If you don’t already have it, this sale is a great time to grab it!
