...and Disk Inventory X (which has served me well) constantly crashes during scan on OS X Mavericks.

comment A modern and faster alternative to Disk Inventory X
Disk Inventory X is definitely slower than both OmniSweeper and GrandPerspective on my MacBook Pro with 500GB SSD. That said, GrandPerspective is IMHO a much better alternative to Disk Inventory X than OmniSweeper simply because GrandPerspective also includes the visual tree map without which it is virtually impossible to find single large files. With the tree map you can simply scan the image for large rectangles (large files or large folders).

comment A modern and faster alternative to Disk Inventory X
The problem with OmniDiskSweeper is that it does not display a visual tree map like Disk Inventory X. Without the tree map it is impossible to find large files in otherwise small folders simply by scanning the image for large rectangles.

comment How to identify application of hung menu bar icon
Great suggestion and exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately the Accessibility Inspector does not update its information when hovering or clicking the hung application area in the menu bar.

I was aware of this trick, but does it also apply to GUI logins?

comment Howto resize copied HFS+ partition above original size (320GB)?
Sorry, its a long time ago, so I fixed it by copying using Disk Utility's "Restore" option instead. As far as I remember the new volume was initially resized to the full size of the new disk. However, I am still puzzled why the ddrescue copy could not be resized which is why I left the question here.
