Macbook Air Storage

Can anyone recommend a good tool to see what is taking up so much space on your Mac, and other files that could possibly be deleted.

I remember using a really good one before but i can't recall it. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have tried many applications for this but my favorite is always Omni DiskSweeper (https://www.omnigroup.com/more), which is free.

Hi oo7ml,

One of the most beautiful and easy to use programs to see your files is DaisyDisk: https://daisydiskapp.com

Hi  oo7ml you can check your used disk space by using Disk utility. Press Command + Space Button and type Disk Utility.
Thank you.

If you're ok with the command line, du and df has always been part of the OS.

Show your disk filesystem usage in "human readable" format.
df -h

Show your disk usage.
du -sh {Folder_or File}

The df command is generally quite fast.  The du command can take a while if the folder contains a lot of files.
