OmniDiskSweeper App’s Description:
OmniDiskSweeper shows you the files on your drive, largest to smallest, and lets you quickly Trash or open them.
Quickly find large, unwanted files and sweep them into the trash
OmniDiskSweeper is a great tool for making space on Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server and Mac OS 9 disks. When you start OmniDiskSweeper, it presents you with a list of disks attached to your machine. You double-click on one, and a new window opens with a browser listing every file and directory on that disk, sorted by size. This is very fast for HFS+ partitions: it takes about seven seconds to process one gigabyte. UFS partitions are significantly slower. Then you browse through the files and directories, and delete the large ones that you aren’t using any more. The free space on the disk and the ordering of the directories are automatically recalculated. If you aren’t sure what’s in a file, you can double-click it or drag it onto an app on it to open it. It’s that simple.

1. What is the OmniDiskSweeper for Mac?
OmniDiskSweeper for Mac is a tool that helps clear space on your Mac by deleting unnecessary files. The application usually locates and deletes big files. OmniDiskSweeper is good at locating space-occupying files and also lets you know whether the file is an organizer or system file, so that you don’t delete anything critical.
2. Is OmniDiskSweeper free?
OmniDiskSweeper was not free to start with, but it has been recently made free by its developers, which makes the tool a lot more attractive than what it was before. The tool adopts a simple, quick approach to locating huge files and clears them out almost instantly, which is nothing less than a feat for a free tool.
3. How safe is the tool?
Safety of apps is always a concern on Macs if they are not from official developers or the App Store. This is because third-party applications at times present more problems than they solve existing issues. Fortunately, OmniDiskSweeper is completely safe to download and use. That said, the safety surrounding its usage also depends on how well you know your Mac and its files.
4. Who is OmniDiskSweeper for?
OmniDiskSweeper is for every individual who would like to have more space on his Mac. People who use SSDs (solid-state drives), which are usually lower capacity than HDDs (hard disk drive), would perhaps need this tool more. OmniDiskSweeper also helps when you think your computer is suffering from performance issues.
5. How does OmniDiskSweeper work?
Upon launching OmniDiskSweeper, you are presented with the disks appended to your Mac. Just double-click on any of them and a fresh window would open. The new window’s column view would list every file and folder you could access. They are sorted by size. The free space available and folder re-ordering are recalculated automatically as the space-hogging, old stuff gets deleted.
6. Can the ‘deletes’ be undone?
No, you cannot undo the delete process once it’s complete. It’s, therefore, important that you carefully peruse the files that OmniDiskSweeper detects, so that you don’t end up deleting files you truly need. And this is why the tool presents a warning board after you press delete so that there is no accidental deletion.
7. How is the user interface?
OmniDiskSweeper’s interface is minimalistic and simple. The tool doesn’t incorporate any graphic portrayals, and doesn’t present different or multiple windows to tackle. And it looks quite a lot like Finder. It presents a basic, sorted-out rundown of your hard drive’s organizers.
8. What is ‘Oversee’?
‘Oversee’ is essentially a proposals tab that comes with alternatives for redoing how your system takes care of tabs and stockpiling, so that you can view the different files and projects carefully and have the option to delete things without exiting the window.
9. Isn’t Mac’s ‘Finder’ functionality good enough?
The ‘Finder’ functionality on Macs can definitely get the same things done, but the process with it would be a lot more demanding compared to OmniDiskSweeper. Since the files and registries are sorted by measure, you can zoom in rapidly on the huge files taking up space on your computer with OmniDiskSweeper.
10. What if an important file is deleted accidentally?
As aforementioned, the files deleted using OmniDiskSweeper are gone for good. There is just no going back and undoing things. However, if the deleted files have to be recovered at any cost, you may have to reinstall OS X. Backups are good preventive measures, by the way.
