DaisyDisk 4.9

Software Ambience has released version 4.9 of DaisyDisk, a utility that provides a visual breakdown of your disk space to help you identify and delete unnecessary files (as mentioned briefly in “How to Deal with Running Out of iCloud, Google, and Dropbox Space,” 17 February 2020). The update improves discovery of hidden space in macOS 10.15 Catalina by including non-firmlinked items of the Data volume, the Virtual Memory volume, and the Recovery and Preboot volumes (when mounted) in the scan report. It also updates the safety rules to allow deletion of some non-critical files in the /private folder, and adds support for FUSE-mounted drives. ($9.99 new from the DaisyDisk Web site and Mac App Store, free update, 6.1 MB, release notes, macOS 10.10+)
