    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post on here so apologies for any noob mistakes. I have a been a mac user for over 6 years. Anyways, does anyone know of a application that will show you all of your files on your mac with a visual color-coded chart? Either pie chart or bar graph or something similar? I believe I used one years ago that was still being developed. I just want to see visually which files are what (movies, music, photos, apps, etc.) and which are taking up the most space so I can downsize appropriately.

    Thank you!

    It's in "About This Mac" under the :apple: menu in the menubar.

    Click it, then "More Info..."

    Then click the "Storage" tab.

    Wow! That was fast! Thank you both!

    DiskinventoryX was the one I was thinking about! DaisyDisk looks beatufiul though... I'll give it a try.

    Thank you!!!

    The problem with OS X's representation is that lacks detail, i.e., the other tab is really confusing and does not provide the level of granularity, i.e., what folders make up the other category. Just my mini rant on this :D

    I've used Diskinventory X under Windows XP and it is good and very useful, but I liked DaisyDisk so much I was happy to buy it for my Mac! Recommended.
