About

DaisyDisk is a program that scans an OSX harddrive and conveniently displays the occupied space so that users can pick-out what is eating their harddrive space.

The trial limitation includes:

  • nag-screens
  • nasty button on the window pane that says “test drive”.
  • disabling the deletion of collected files.

So, we take DaisyDisk for a test drive and break the protections.

Nag Screens

The nag screens are easily disabled by crippling the TrialNagWindowController:

                                            methImpl_TrialNagWindowController_init:

00000001000ae55f C3                              ret

Nag Button

To eliminate the nag button, we nop the je around 0x0100029829:

Enabling Deletion

Deleting files is disabled in the trial version, however this can easily be circumvented by jumping over the license key verification procedure and other intermediary steps:
