WizTree v3.17 Updated

billon on 8 Dec 2017

  • Released on 7 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

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.

Nice little piece of software. However SpaceSniffer is even better and faster. Link found in Similar/alternative apps. Check it out.

@mcodex:
I tested spacesniffer on my C: drive (running as administrator) and it took 1m 56s to complete
WizTree's scan took 4.6 seconds (25x faster than SpaceSniffer)

Yeah I'm not sure what mcodex is smoking, you can like Spacesniffer more because of *reasons, that's subjective, but speed in this case is not. WizTree is damn fast.

This is my favorite file manager, very powerful but slow when a lot of small files are to copied/moved.
Also it creates its configuration files in user folders.

Multi Commander 5.0.0 (Build 1888) has been released.

MultiCommander has a bug in log into other directories. I could not log into directories reliably. =( Check the directories you enter with MC!

Too Long Paths Detector v1.2

webfork on 16 Oct 2012

Too Long Paths Detector (TLPD) is designed to tackle the 'path name too long' issue for path length limits of 255 characters. As Windows can't handle files and folders beyond that length, the program scans the directory tree, looking for files and folders with full path name longer than a specified threshold, and then alerts the user. For administrators, TLPD can also work in silent mode, with the results stored in a log file. No limitations on file system types.

Functional in 64-bit.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
License: GPL
How to extract: Download TLPD.exe and ReadMe to a folder of your choice and launch.

While guinness's command line application may be faster & better, it is still command line and so this is the version acceptable for the database.

CubicExplorer v0.95.1

webfork on 17 Feb 2017
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Jan 2014
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

CubicExplorer is a customizable Explorer replacement that supports bookmarks, themes, and multiple tabs. "Sessions" can be set with various customizations set to a particular setting (e.g. a picture folder set to thumbnails, a logs folder set to "details" and a program folder with desktop-like icons), and multiple sessions can be set for different folder sets based on tasks such as work, home, play, etc.

Unlike similar programs, CubicExplorer is built for ease-of-use and ability to adapt to your environment rather than a broad feature set, but includes some advanced features such as filtering, file preview, search, a built-in text editor with syntax highlighting support, and more. Multiple instances of the program can be run simultaneously.

Note: main site offline; linking to archive.org. Alternatively, CubicExplorer Portable adjusts paths in settings, bookmarks and sessions.

Languages: 26, including Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and French

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7

Outstanding file manager for when you constantly work with a set list of folders. The tabbed interface, bookmarks, and ability to save sessions makes navigating folders easy and simple. I would have great difficulty on Vista/Win7 without it.

Portable version on authors site does not write to the registry at all-I like the stack feature as I can drag files there and then drag them to a folder on my external drive,a little buggy but very useful-could not live without it!

hamasaki on 2014-06-22 13:45

Very nice file manager. Really nice interface. A little buggy at times, but overall very good. I like the fact you can build your own tree via categories in the left menu, rather than the default c drive tree view others have. Means I can have only relevant folders showing.
