Have you noticed your mac is running a little sluggish lately? Are you having trouble taking claim of your hard drive space? This free tool will help.

I do a lot of video editing which takes up a lot of hard drive space. I do my best to clean up files when I’m finished, but I consistently found myself with less than half of my 1TB hard drive space. The main problem was that I couldn’t find the large files, until I used this free app.

Disk Inventory X (don’t click on the advertised download button) will scan your hard drive and then list the folders containing files that are taking up the most space. You can then navigate to those folders and delete files that you do not need, freeing up your hard drive. It worked for me, maybe it can help you.

What programs, tips, or tricks do you have to keep your computer running smooth?
