After all, in iPad, iPhone, and now the Mac via OS X Mountain Lion, Apple is trying to hide document management.
Apple seems to assume that their customers have no need to know how much storage remains on their devices. Otherwise, why wouldn’t they make it easy to see how much free space is available.
For that, you need FreeSpace, a dirt cheap Menubar utility which tells you what’s what with connected storage devices and how much space remains on each.
How simple and useful is this?
One click gives you a quick look at all your connected devices and how much storage is still available.
But FreeSpace does more than just display the free space on your Mac. One click can also eject all connected devices. Or, option-click to eject a single specific storage device.
One of the handiest features is the warning when a disk drive’s free space drops below 200-megabytes. The pop down display also segregates and groups displays. Click on any item in the menu and it opens in the Finder.
Preferences are nominal but available with a single click in the Menubar. And, it’s Notification Center aware, so whenever a disk is connected or disconnected you get a brief notice.
Not bad for 99-cents. Why doesn’t Apple have something like this already in OS X?
