Size browser scans only visible folders on High Sierra with APFS file system. With HFS+ Size browser also scans hidden folders like Library or folders which start with a dot.

    Hi Bartosz, 

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Could you please specify, what's the Size browser you've mentioned? 
    I will make sure to test it on our side. 

    Just to make sure, have you enabled the option to show the hidden files? 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Hi,

    I mean "Window ➝ Size Browser".

    Yes, I've tried with "View ➝ Show Invisible Files" enabled and disabled. In
    both cases, on APFS hidden files and folders are not shown in the Size
    Browser. On HFS+ the "Show Invisible Files" doesn't matter since it always
    shows invisible files and folders.

    Hi Bartosz,

    I see, thanks for specifying that. 

    I am forwarding this case to our developers for further investigation. 

    Meanwhile, make sure to let us know should any questions arise.
