WizTree is a very fast disk space analyzer and search tool, scanning a single folder or your entire hard drive quickly and showing those files and folders using the most disk space. The program uses the NTFS Master File Table (MFT) feature in Windows to rapidly view files.

Note that this high-speed mode is limited to local, NTFS-formatted drives. The program must do a (much slower) scan of FAT-formatted or network drives for analysis.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

What's new?
  • Zoom/Unzoom treemap.
    Press F10 (or + on numpad) to zoom treemap to currently selected folder.
    Press F11 (or - on numpad) to unzoom treemap to parent of currently zoomed treemap folder.
  • Portable version no longer enables "Windows Explorer context menu" by default.
    If you enable this option when using WizTree portable then please remember to disable it when you're done with the PC otherwise the WizTree context menu items will remain on the PC even if WizTree portable is no longer accessible.
  • Fixed:
    • Supporter code might have had to be entered twice on some PCs due to restart happening before config file update complete;
    • Treemap might display blank or only appear after a long delay on some PCs.
  • Treemap generation sped up.
  • Allocated Size added to File Type view.
  • Options:
    • To show allocated size on tree view instead of file size;
    • To control the auto scanning of drives after making a selection.
  • Floppy drives (A: or B:) will not be selected by default if any other drive letters exist.
  • New translations: French, Serbian, Japanese and Spanish.

Very fast launching and scanning. Took about 20 secs to scan 80GB HD in XP.

There seems to be no going back to other great drive space testers after using this. While others programs on the site have cool visualizations and neat features (two of them listed above in the "Similar apps" area, but the speed with which it analyzes even enormous drives is just too nice.

Also love how it deletes folders (just crossing it out). The only negative (if it's even a negative) is that the directory sizing doesn't change dynamically. So if you go in and manage a few files, the view doesn't change. You have to rescan.

WizTree 3.0 released 31-AUG-2017

TPFC 32-bit and 64-bit download links point to the same distribution package:
wiztree_3_00_portable.zip

This package includes two distinct PE's:
• wiztree64.exe
• wiztree.exe

Pick your PE wisely...;-)

Also, note the zip package folder structure has changed from a flat hierarchy in the previous versions,
to a 4-level hierarchy in the current one:

WizTree64.exe
locale
locale\en
locale\en\LC_MESSAGES
locale\en\LC_MESSAGES\default.mo
locale\en\LC_MESSAGES\default.po
locale\How to Translate WizTree.txt
license.txt
WizTree.exe


Lastly, note the developer forgot to update Wiztree's internal version tags:
