iStat Pro & FreeSpace

Lastly, I like to know at any given time how much space is available on my computer. Is this strictly necessary? No, but I just like to see this information. For the OSX Dashboard, I use iStat Pro for showing system information. Along with disk information, it also shows temperatures and CPU / Memory / Network usage. It is useful and free.


Also, I use a program called FreeSpace, which puts an icon in the notification area of the task bar that shows me how much space is left on my hard drive, as well as the ability to eject any attached drives by clicking it. I do not use the drive ejecting much, but the real-time free space number is extremely useful.

Very nice writeup. Even though the hdd in my MacBook Pro is a 500GB, I think I'm going to check out some of these programs to make sure every thing is running nice.

Not necessarily a convert Wes; a Mac will always be my day-to-day machine. But if I want to game, I need a PC. And if I want to write more for your audience I need a PC. That's all. :)

heh, well it is good timing on this writeup as I am working on my first mod project which will also be a hackintosh build . Wouldn't call myself a Mac convert, but a new challenge is always fun :)
