WhatSize is shareware tool that allows the user to quickly measure the size in bytes of a given folder and all subfolders and files within it. You would be surprised at how many useless files might be laying around on your hard disks. The files and folders are automatically sorted by size, with the biggest sizes first.
While the app is measuring a folder the user can browse the files within that folder and immediately see the size in bytes. Hidden files, cache files, directories will all show up with their corresponding size.
Once the measuring of a folder has ended the user can also view the information by filtering for particular file sizes or types. The user can also move unwanted files and folders in the corresponding Trash bin similar to the Finder’s Delete button.
With DeLocalizer you can remove those unwanted locales for languages you never knew existed.
With Nib’o Suction you can clean up all those unnecessary, forgotten nib files. Most likely these files were left over from the development process. Considering there are hundreds of these, they add up.
With Lipo Suction you can trim up binary files by removing the unused architecture bytes.
With Find Duplicates you can quickly and easily find duplicate files.
For those of us, using Solid State Drives, being able to thin the boot volume by a few extra gigabytes will be a good thing.
Developed in Cocoa, Objective-C, the application makes use of multithreading, low level UNIX file system APIs, C programming and Obj-C method implementation(IMP) caching to achieve speed, low memory footprint and stability, unmatched by other tools.
Use it for free to measure up to 20GB of data, or purchase a license for $12.99 to measure any volume, have access to the System Administrator functionality and support development of new features.
