DaisyDisk 4.5 Officially Released

Now it’s official: the long awaited DaisyDisk 4.5 is finally out!

It’s an important update, that took us a long time to research and develop. The main new feature — the extended support of the new Apple File System (APFS) and addressing the top questions about macOS High Sierra and APFS that we have received.

Download the new version

What’s new:

  • Extended support of the new Apple File System (APFS) on macOS High Sierra, in particular:
  • You can now see the “purgeable space” — the disk space taken by the local snapshots of Time Machine and other caches, which cannot be scanned, but can now be identified inside the “hidden space”.
  • And you can now reclaim that “purgeable space”.
  • Added display of the “free space” in the right sidebar list, along with the estimation of available space, that is, “free + purgeable”.
  • Added display of the space taken by “other volumes” in the same APFS container, inside the “hidden space”.
  • Lots of bugs fixed.

Please upgrade by downloading the new version from our website, or by using Check for Updates… menu command from within the app.

The updated user manual can be found here.

DaisyDisk 4.4 fixes display of hidden space, adds Japanese language

DaisyDisk 4.4 both stand-alone and Mac App Store versions are now live.

A minor yet an important update.

We’ve finally addressed a small but annoying issue that has been plaguing the Mac App Store version of DaisyDisk for quite a while. Unlike its stand-alone counterpart, the App Store’s DaisyDisk lacked the display of hidden disk space, so in some cases our App Store customers were confused by the apparent mismatch between the sum of all scanned folders and the disk’s total used space. With the recent introduction of our free license migration service, we are finally able to display the full disk usage information in both DaisyDisk versions, and give all our users a meaningful path to reveal the hidden space, if they need to.

Also in this update we’ve improved the order, in which the disks and volumes are displayed in the overview of disks. Partitions are now sorted alphabetically by their names, grouped by physical disk were they are located. (Previously, all partitions were sorted by their logical names.) Network shares are grouped by their corresponding remote servers.

And finally, we’ve re-added the Japanese language! 🇯🇵

DaisyDisk 4.0.3 fixes the Sparkle vulnerability, adds German and Russian languages

DaisyDisk 4.0.3 stand-alone version is now live, the Mac App Store version is submitted for review and is coming soon.

Update! :)

This update fixes the recently revealed Sparkle vulnerability, though at the time we were already using HTTPS so DaisyDisk users were not likely affected. Beside th fix, we re-added German and Russian localizations. Full change log here.

Please note that if you are using stand-alone DaisyDisk 4.0.1 on El Capitan, you’ll have to update manually, that is, by downloading and replacing the app. The built-in updater was unfortunately broken in DaisyDisk 4.0.1. It should still work fine though on OS X Yosemite.
