DirSize is a command line tool to
show you how much disk space is used and wasted in each
directory. You will find that it is far faster and more accurate
than other similar tools, completing scans of 1.2 Terabyte disk structures in 40 minutes
while other apps take 2 hours and are still not complete.

- Finding multiple copies of a single application on a
- Finding which directories could be archived to save space
(typically those that contain lots of small files)
- Finding where most of the disk space is used
- Finding applications to remove before installing a new
- Previewing the benefits of a smaller cluster size
- Generating daily, weekly or monthly reports showing how
the disk space distribution has changed. You can easily generate
html, tab- or comma-delimited output to feed directly into your favorite
spreadsheet for further analysis
- Showing you the complete directory tree
- See sample HTML report
hard disks up to 1/4 of the total drive space is wasted! DirSize
will show you where.

each directory shown, displays total space used, wasted space

name. If the directory has sub-directories, it also shows the
combined total -this is very useful for finding the complete
size of applications before deletion or backup.

useful addition. The bigger drives get, the more we
you for developing a fine product. it is very useful to me to
maintain order on my hard drive. I basically use your program in
a Win95 DOS box to write a text file for each of my 6 drives and

Size of a big Subdir of a CDROM. About 2000+ Files took more
than 5 Minutes. So I had a quick look at a SIMTEL Mirror and
found DIRSIZE v2.5. I was impressed how fast it worked, even on
my 1.6G Hard disk.
