Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Big Files

Today’s blog is about a useful bit of software called treesize that can quickly scan directory sizes and find big files so you can work out where all the space on your hard drive has gone, to quote the develops of treesize about the freeware version.

“TreeSize Free can be started from the context menu of a folder or drive and shows you the size of this folder, including its subfolders. Expand folders in an Explorer-like fashion and see the size of every subfolder. All results can also be drilled down to the file level. Scanning operations run in a thread, so you can already see results while TreeSize Free is working. The Explorer context menu is supported within TreeSize, as well as the usual drag & drop operations.”

Which can be downloaded from the following location


Also if you want even more information about your directory sizes Take a look at the advanced analysis and management functions of TreeSize Professional.

    This little piece of software has come in handy quite a few times for me. I especially like that there is a standalone executable that can be used without any sort of installation for instances where you need to check what’s eating the space on a server where you don’t necessarily want to be installing extraneous software.
