Well, it fried my Finder...
Authored by: kirkmc on Nov 18, '03 04:43:49AM

Great tool for demoing the beachball. It fried my Finder so totally I couldn't force quit, and I couldn't even get out of it by sshing in from another Mac.

Had to force a restart - not nice at all.

In the Trash...

Very odd -- worked fine on a dual G5 and a 12" PowerBook G4. No other problem reports that I can find about it on the web...

I would NOT recommend using WhatSize!

I had the same experience!

What I did was to select the root level of my hard drive: "/". This went fine until WhatSize started into the /Network directory and tried to log onto *every* node there (I am connected to a *very* large LAN...)! Very bad hang ensued. I would NOT recommend this program until this is all sorted out!!!!
