The wave that will cleanse your disks!

What is DiskWave?

DiskWave is a free disk usage utility for Mac OS X. It helps you determine what files and folders consume most of your disk space.

You can see DiskWave in action in the screenshots page.

The program scans your hard drive to compute the size of all folders and sub folders. The results are stored in memory, which allows faster navigation than the built-in “compute all sizes” option in the Finder. You can easily identify useless directories and delete them.

DiskWave is currently under development. Some features are still missing, but the program is already usable.

System requirements

DiskWave requires Mac OS X 10.6 and a 64 bit Intel CPU minimum.

DiskWave fully supports Mac OS X 10.10 Mavericks.

Older versions of DiskWave are available for Mac OS X 10.5 and support both 32 bit Intel and PowerPC CPUs.
