Best Mac Disk Utility Software?

Is there a program for the Mac similar to Tune up Utilities for Windows? Been having a look around but couldn't find an awful lot, I'm hoping you guys will have a couple suggestions!

Thanks!

You really have no need for such software on a mac. But if you need a program to remove old cache files then i would try Onyx. Its free and does a great job. Plus it has a bunch of other features included also.

Ahh ok thanks - Could I ask why? It's my first Mac so just wondered if it's the way the OS works or whatever!

Also, Is there a way of finding out which files are taking up the most room on your hard drive? Thanks

If you want to see what files are taking up the most room i would try an app called GrandPerspective. Its free and shows you a visual representation of the size of your files.
