[prMac.com] London, UK - MildMannered Industries is proud to announce Baseline 1.3, an update to their highly rated disk usage utility for Mac OS X. Baseline is a disk sizing utility that allows users to see at-a-glance exactly how much disk space has been used. As well as showing how much disk space each file or folder takes up, Baseline allows users to compare their hard disk against previous scans to show what has changed.
With its super fast disk scanning engine, users can view files and folders in a directory tree, browser, or graphical treemap view, as well as conveniently delete, compress or archive items directly from within the application.
"The TreeMap view was one of our most requested features" said Martin Redington, founder of MildMannered Industries. "Unlike other disk sizing applications, Baseline's TreeMap's are coloured according to whether files have grown bigger or smaller since the selected baseline. Together with the existing directory tree and browser views, Baseline lets you view your disk in whatever way is most comfortable for you."
Version 1.3 includes duplicate file detection, allowing users to easily identify multiple copies of the same file. This is particularly useful when tracking down files with different names, but identical content. The user interface has also been enhanced with a new bottom bar and subtle Core Animation transitions between views.
Feature highlights include:
* Super Fast Disk Scanning
* Compare Disks against saved Baselines
* Directory Tree, browser, or TreeMap views
* Duplicate File Detection
* View only the items that have changed since a previous Baseline
* Delete, Compress, or Archive items from within Baseline
* Detects System and Package installed files and warns before removing them
* Leopard Compatible

A free fully functional 14 day demo is available for download. After the 14 day trial period is over, Baseline will not display comparisons against previously saved scans, but all other functionality will remain intact.
