Is there an application (ideally for Mac) that would allow you to visualize / display graphically all the files and sub-directories within a directory?

I use a program called Disk Inventory X. It has served me well for quite a while. And it's free :)

If you don't mind working from the command line, the tree command does what you want. It's more or less standard on Linux and comes with Windows. I gather it's not installed by default on the Mac, but it's easy to obtain.


Similar to @Josh's answer but for Windows, SequoiaView is a free tool that does a squarified treemap visualization of your directory structure.

GrandPerspectiv works on OSX and is updated as of December 2018. It's also free and open source! Wonderful!
