OmniDiskSweeper is Leopard Unready Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
This app crashed 100% of the time on my MacBook Pro 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo, OS X 10.5.2. It certainly is not Leopard Ready even with a proviso.

It's $15 down the drain.
Works absolutely fine for me (though I do not have the activated version... I just delete files manually) - I assume that you do have the latest version, so is there a consistent error in the crash reports (that is, does the same thread crash each time) and does it crash at the same point each time or is it random?
Absolutely does NOT work for me.

Yes I was using the latest version.

Yes I did pay for it.

I sent all the crash reports to OmniGroup. I am not a programmer. Reading lines of threads means nothing to me.

It would crash in the scan phase, though once it completed the scan but crash short afterwards.

It never crashed on Tiger. I did a clean install of Leopard.

I have removed the app from my system.
Glad I saw this thread. I was seriously looking to buy this. But now I guess I'll wait....
On my MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz (bought in Dec 2006), DiskSweeper works fine. I am now on OSX 10.5.4.

My suggestion is to try the Demo - if it works on your system, the purchase price seems reasonable to me.

Works fine (no crashes) for me with 10.5.4 and 10.5.3, had a total of 1 crash with 10.5.2. I've got the paid version, but I cannot believe that license status has anything to do with the problem being seen by the OP.

I'd suggest the original poster send mail to OmniDiskSweeper Support and get the issue resolved, either by examining the crash logs or issuing a refund. I don't think I put words in their mouth by saying they don't like to have unhappy customers and will try to make you happy. If you just sent in the crash reports via the Omni crash reporting tool, no human may actually have seen the report. When you use the "Send Feedback" command under the Help menu, someone does see it. When I did so last week with an OmniDiskSweeper issue, I got an answer from the head of Support & QA in about an hour.
I can only browse the results for a minute or two every time and then a crash. It's happened under every version of Leopard for me on my Macbook Pro.
Have you sent in the crash report? From the product page:
We're aware of a bug which can cause crashes on dual-processor or multi-core machines. Let support know if you encounter this issue. We're working on a fix, but for the time being most users should be fine on Leopard.

I was having this issue and contacted Omni, they very swiftly directed me to a sneaky peak beta that has, so far, worked perfectly. Omni is one of the most responsive software suppliers I've found, they welcome feedback. Give it a go?
