dirsize.gif (313 bytes) Introducing DirSize

DirSize shows you how much disk space is used and wasted in each folder. Its uses include:

  • Finding space hogs on a network
  • Finding multiple copies of a single application on a server
  • Finding which folders 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 one
  • 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 tab- or comma-delimited output to feed directly into your favourite spreadsheet for further analysis
  • Showing you the complete folder tree

On large hard disks up to 1/4 of the total drive space is wasted! DirSize will show you where.

It runs under DOS, Windows 3.x, 95, 98 and NT, and supports long filenames under Windows 95, 98 and NT.

Ziff Davis rates it as a 4 Star Editor’s Pick - "DirSize is an easy way to quickly find out which directories are using what amount of space on your hard disk."
