After all, we Mac, iPhone, and iPad users know all about candy for the eyes. That’s Apple’s specialty. Well, I found an inexpensive app that puts eye candy into the drollest of Mac utility tools.
A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words
How many files and folders do you have on your Mac? How much total space on your Mac’s disk drive is devoted to those files and folders?
There once was a time when I actually cared about such questions (and their answers).
Mac disks were smaller back in the day, and watching the disk to make sure it didn’t run out of space was exactly what we Mac faithful did every Saturday night (instead of dating Windows PC users).
We used specialty apps that would scan all files and folders on a Mac volume and display a list of which ones took up the most space.
Well, boys and girls, guys and gals, today we have Eximo, a clever disk usage visualizer that is so good, so full of hip enhancing, eyeball-filling eye candy that one single glance tells you everything you need to know about files and folders which fill up your Mac.
See? That all makes sense, right? If not, check out this view of your Mac’s files and folders.
In other words, run Eximo to get a look at your Mac’s files and folders, and the resulting eye candy graphic tells you absolutely, well, nothing.
It’s incomprehensible to all Mac users except those with certifications from Geek University (online).
Eximo scans your Mac’s file structure, and displays a visual representation of folders. It reveals hidden files and folders. It supports Quick Look to see what inside a file without an app.
Eximo makes it easy to find folders filled with files or large files. Simply click on one of the larger elements of the colorful wheel (which does not, unfortunately, double as a color wheel) to see what’s inside.
Do that enough times and you’re bound to find a folder with files you don’t need, which means you can delete files and gain some extra disk space. Eximo doesn’t cost much, and works similarly to DaisyDisk, but costs more than Disk Diet which actually makes it even easier to reclaim disk space by getting rid of specific files you may not need (but without the eye candy– eye candy costs).
