Mac Gems: Hard disk utility space Gremlin 1.2


You have tons of files taking valuable space in your hard disk? It is very likely that you are doing, but you have no idea where they are, not to mention the easiest access and dispose.

Space Gremlin 1.2 is a visualization of hard disk utility which gives you a view dynamic, almost architectural disk hard and each folder and file that is in it. Space Gremlin - personified by the resemblance of a deficient, yet friendly little green creature - uses an algorithm called squarified treemaps, which allows you to identify files that take the most space and decides what to do with them.You can generate a map of your entire hard disk or zoom into specific volumes, such as a Time Machine, public record, Bootcamp partition backup or a network drive. It also works with FileVault. I attach even my iPod fourth generation, nightclubs full of files, to see a map of the media, the images and files backup random files that I saved from 2003.The window of the Gremlin space has a pleasant graduated blue color that coordinates with the colour folder and contrast pleasantly with its white papers. More you get in the hierarchical drive structure, the lighter the colour. Score on the interface shows you the ToolTips of the app, that give you the names of each of your files. The color scheme makes it easier to see the contents of your disk and the relative amount of its various components occupy the space.Once you have overview of the contents of the hard disk, it is time to make decisions on what to do to alleviate overcrowding. This version of the Gremlin space allows you to compress large files and folders from trash directly from the interface of the program. While double-clicking on will not open a file, it identifies the file and allows that you locate in the finder, where you can then open and display.

Performance has been rapid. It took less than 4 minutes to analyze my whole hard drive, but it took more time to compress a large file in a ZIP file. More file, more is needed to analyze and generate the Visual representation. You can choose what you want to focus on, for example, you can view your hard disk over or just your base, record of the photo or film file folder. After compression, you must manually delete the uncompressed files, however. Network drives are slower for all operations, without surprise, and you cannot trash the files from disks on a network.

Space Gremlin has a transparent and flexible interface. Click inside the border of any folder and it will zoom show you only the content within. Each file and folder are automatically generated in proportion to the amount of space it consumes by the rest of the files. To enlarge the default window, simply drag the bottom right and any dynamically resizes. Or you can make the full-screen map. You can also save these files as PDF files for reference.

A toolbar at the top of the window of the Gremlin space facilitates navigation. You can use the toolbar to analyze a different folder and move back and forth between the hierarchy of files that you zoom in and out of different files. Refresh command allows you to rescan files. You can also selectively ignore records by using the button ignore, which allows you to select a folder to remove the card, that you are looking for. It does not change the structure of the record, everything you see, so you can focus on the content which you are interested in.

Gremlin 1.2 is a file management tool fast, excellent which provides analytical data on your hard disk and facilitates a number of simple actions. It is interesting to look at, easy to use, informative, and most importantly, it works only. Even if you do not want to clean your disk immediately, is to see how everything is arranged a revelation.
