Sooner or later in happens to us all we fill up a hard drive. But even before that, Pro Tools gets clunky when the drive it is recording onto gets nearly full. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see how full your drives are getting without having to open a Finder window. Well with the new version of FreeSpace you can do, as well as all sorts of drive related stuff.
In version 1.1, you can Option+click any partition to unmount just that partition, leaving the others on that drive mounted. FreeSpace now automatically highlights any drive with less than 200MB of free space.
You can now choose any connected volume for its menu-bar display—just move the mouse to the left of the volume name and click the little arrow button that appears. And if you choose a removable volume, FreeSpace remembers that selection—when you unmount the volume, the display reverts to the boot volume, but once you mount the removable volume again, FreeSpace switches back to it.
It also gives you quick access to any mounted volume, just choose one from the menu to open it in the Finder—and it’s the easiest way to unmounted connected volumes, thanks to the little eject button next to each volume in the menu.
So now you can keep track of how full your drives are getting and so its one less thing fro Pro Tools to get upset about.
And the price $0.99 or £0.69 from the Apple App Store.
