DaisyDisk gets a Yosemite makeover, shows what's eating your disk space much faster

DaisyDisk, a utility for helping you recover space on your hard drive, has hit version 4.0 with several major improvements, particularly to scanning speed, which is now up to 20x faster than the previous version. Additionally, the app has refreshed its look, brining it in line with the style of OS X Yosemite and the upcomign OS X El Capitan.

Here's everything you can expect in DaisyDisk 4.0:

  • Finally, brand new look-and-feel, matching the new OS style.
  • Dramatically improved scanning speed – up to 20x times faster! Now scanning takes just a few seconds, not minutes as before*.

(*Depends on your disk and CPU models. The speed gain is most notable on newer SSDs and 4-core CPUs).

  • Significantly reduced memory consumption.
  • A few minor features and tweaks.

You can grab DaisyDisk 4.0 from the Mac App Store right now.
