Not true, it can scan directories. The option is right there on the startup menu.

Select the 'Path' to scan if you don't want a whole drive.

I think i'll keep this one. WinDirStat is prettier but Spacesniffer is way faster and natively portable

Irfanview is one of the oldest, but still one of the best programs of its type. Does just about everything, its fast and very lightweight, and even works from the command-line.
