Brilliant little application, works well - shows which files are using up space intuitively. It's saved me quite a few gigs already. Definately a keeper.

@dirt_farmer : Version 0.9.13 unfortunately contained a bug, caused by a silly typo, that could indeed trigger crashes when scanning. The bug has been fixed in Version 0.9.13.1. The reason the bug had made its way into the release is because it did not manifest itself on my machine. :-(

Sometimes when my disk is near full I start up GrandPerspective and can see what is taking up all the place. Great tool.

Errr.... sorry about the multiple posts. The damn site froze whilst I was attempting to post the comment.

I've used this for a long time, and love it. But today's (8/26) release constantly crashes whenever I scan anything! I've tried downloading it three different times. Anyone else having this problem? I've done the usually maintenance (permission repair, etc.)

I just used this to get back 11GB from my home directory, including a left-over 5GB Parallels disk image I had no idea about.

@norz : I don't think you have yet tried the latest release yet. If you do, you will find that GrandPerspective now (optionally) hides the contents of packages. :-)
