Thanks for a great video, Lee! I picked up some very helpful tips that I'll be putting to good use.

It's worth noting that the "Scan as Administrator" feature isn't available in the Mac App Store version. It only works with the version of the app that's downloaded directly from the DaisyDisk website.

Hello Tim, and thank you for providing this information regarding the Scan as Administrator feature of DaisyDisk. Here's a link to the article explaining this: https://daisydiskapp.com/manual/4/en/Topics/AdminScan.html

If that is an important feature to you, you can switch to the stand-alone version free of charge: daisydiskapp.com/migration/
