    Not that there is anything wrong with dtravis7's suggestion, there is also GrandPerspective. It's always nice to have a choice.

    iBook G3 - You'll be missed.
    I love DaisyDisk - DaisyDisk - Disk Visualization Tool
    DaisyDisk just does it for me. I have tried all of the other ones, but DD just cuts my cake.

    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    Personally, I find WhatSize to give a much better picture of storage allocation.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    That one looks quite interesting. Shows many views. I will give it a try. Been using Disk Inventory for ages. Time to check something new!

    Been using DiskInventoryX though I've had WhatSize for a while.

    After trying all of those listed above - went ahead and gave WhatSize my money.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Me too. I like being able to quickly find the big files and delete them if necessary. It's fast and efficient and I know the exact files and paths they're in.
