The Omni Group, the same folks who have graced Mac OS X machines everywhere with the cocoa-based Web browser OmniWeb, have released a new version of OmniDiskSweeper. It’s a Mac OS X-native utility used to find and delete files on your hard drive. The software flags files used by your system, so you can avoid deleting anything important.
Changes introduced in this new release include:
Updated user interface for OS X.
Main list of drives is more like Finder, less like UNIX.
Faster parsing of installed packages.
Each drive window saves its frame independently.
Added in OmniCrashCatcher.
“OmniDiskSweeper can be used for free to find the big files on your disks, but we also have a neat-o, incredibly high-tech ‘delete’ button which we enable if you fork over a couple of dollars at our online store,” writes the Omni Group. “Sure, you could delete the files yourself the hard way, but for the price of a couple of Big Macs which will probably kill you from heart disease in later years, you can have a nice, simple button that deletes for you.”
