    An undocumented "feature" can help you do it in Finder

    Run the command "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true"

    Thanks. I needed a replacement for "WinDirStat" and this looks quite close. No coincidence either since at the bottom of the Disk Inventory X page it says WinDirStat was done by his mate.
