Finally, a new DaisyDisk 4 beta release! We’ve made some major rewrites under the hood, which dramatically boosted DaisyDisk’s scanning speed. In our benchmarks, scanning an SSD is now up to 15x faster! It means you can scan your Macbook’s disk in only 3-6 seconds – almost in no time. A real no-brainer when your disk gets full.
This is the fastest and most efficient DaisyDisk you have ever used. Your beta-testing and feedbacks are welcome: Download DaisyDisk 4 Beta (OS X Yosemite required)
Macbook Pro 250GB SSD: ~6-7 sec (previously 120 sec)
iMac 5K 1TB Fusion: ~5-18 sec (previously 70 sec)
2011 iMac 1TB HDD: ~40 sec (previously 79 sec)
In the following few weeks we’ll be tweaking the beta and submitting the official release to the Mac App Store. A brand new website is also in the pipeline.

DaisyDisk 4 has been in public beta testing for a while already. In the meantime we decided to make this major update even more valuable by adding another important new feature. Of course, this should take us back to development for another few weeks, but we’re sure it’s totally worth it. Stay tuned!

We’re glad to announce that starting from today our Unclutter team separates from Software Ambience and becomes a brand new company, entirely devoted to the Unclutter app, while we stay better focused on our main DaisyDisk and LilyView projects. This is a move that we’ve been planning from the very beginning of Unclutter, which we see as a great idea, but still a side product for us.
We’ve been sharing our vision and expertise with the Unclutter team under the wing of Software Amibence and today we are happy to see that the app has grown strong enough to fly on its own.
From the very beginning, Eugene was and remains in charge for developing Unclutter. The website and all contacts for Unclutter stay the same. We remain friends and wish the Unclutter team the best of luck!
Unclutter has become a great tool already and we’re looking forward to the upcoming next major update which will make it even greater. We use this indispensible tool ourselves every day, and recommend it to all Mac users.

Greetings, dear users.
Good news: DaisyDisk 3 is fully compatible with OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
Better news: the upcoming DaisyDisk 4 will be a Yosemite exclusive with an updated look and feel plus some really handy extra features.
Great news: DaisyDisk 4 is free for all users of DaisyDisk 2 and 3.
Availability: December 2014.
Unfortunately, LilyView hasn’t been updated in time. It’s only partially compatible with OS X 10.10 Yosemite and these issues really influence the experience of using the app.
We apologize for the inconvenience and let you know that the update is in the works. Meanwhile we decided to temporarily pull LilyView from the Mac App Store. It will be back after the update is released.

Good news, friends. DaisyDisk 3.0.2 is out.
It adds a workaround for yet-another-Mavericks-bug (sorry for inconvenience) and speaks German, French, Italian, Russian and Swedish.
Download, enjoy and let us know what you think.

Since its very introduction in OS X, app sandboxing has been a pain in the butt for both developers and users. Developers have spent wonderful weeks or even months adopting their software to the new requirements, and users have surely loved the new for-the-sake-of-your-own-security dialogs.
While no doubt being a good idea in theory, Apple’s sandbox implementation leaves much do be desired, not to mention it’s ridden with bugs, which really hurt end users’ experience.
For example, sandboxed applications cannot unmount USB drives even after receiving full access. The bug has been reported to Apple months ago, but it’s still there in Mavericks. A new issue introduced in Mavericks is app’s inability to operate correctly if the sandbox access is granted by drag and drop. The open dialog works, but drag and drop, Mac’s natural way of interacting with things, doesn’t work correctly in Mavericks.
We, as developers, cannot fix sandbox bugs, but we can do one thing: offer all our customers a sandbox-free version of DaisyDisk, which solves all these problems once and for all. Just download DaisyDisk app directly from our site and it will pick up your Mac App Store registration data. In addition to being sandbox-free, the stand-alone version provides some extra features you may find useful.
