Identify and remove large files to regain disk space.
 
1.3 (See all)

File Sumo Pro is designed to help you identify and remove large files. The tool offers to scan your Mac's hard drive or external drives in order to find the files that take most disk space. A clean drive makes your system run faster and complete the running tasks in due time and without errors.

The application is very easy to use since no configuration settings are required. However, the lack of pre-scan filters and settings is rather a disadvantage, making the scan process take a long time. Plus, you aren't able to stop or pause the scan operation once it is enabled. Therefore, you are forced to wait until the scan is completed and then look for the results. The identified big files are grouped automatically into categories. This way, you can either browse the entire list of results, or look only for music files, videos, images, apps, archives, or other uncategorized files. Furthermore, the tool allows you to make an ignore list of big-sized files, to prevent them from being scanned and deleted accidentally. The free version of this program will display the top-10 largest files, while the pro version supports up to the 100 biggest files. A good thing about this utility is that you can delete selected files directly from within the app. In addition, you can enable an automatic scan mode, which will activate the scan operation at a specified time interval without manual intervention.

In short, File Sumo Pro is a simple large file identifier and remover that offers to free up your drives in order to regain the desired disk space. Yet, the lack of scan filters is a great disadvantage, which makes you reconsider whether the program is worth keeping or not.
