WizTree v3.15 Updated

  • 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.

From the dev :
"It's not possible to set the font size at the moment. You could try
using Windows text size scaling to scale everything up on your PC.

The exe doesn't have any dependencies - it should run on any version of
windows."

It's possible to tweak the display settings by editing the WizTree3.ini file (located in the same folder as the exe for the portable version)

fontsize = font size used in tree/file views
rowheight = row height used in tree/file views
showhorizontallines = set to 1 to draw horizontal grid lines in tree/file views
altrowcolors = set to 1 to use a gray background for each alternate row in tree/file views
decimalplaces = sets the number of decimal places used when displaying size values in GB/MB/KB. Default is 1

[frmWizTreeMain]
fontsize=8
rowheight=18
showhorizontallines=0
altrowcolors=0
decimalplaces=2

Note that you should close WizTree before making any changes to the WizTree3.ini file as WizTree may overwrite your settings while it's active.

Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

In the web page say, (in GetFoldersize Features):
...Different Themes to style the user interface to suit your personal preferences...
I can't find how.
Anybody have a clue?
Thanks

The developer of GetFoldersize was kind enough to promise to restore the smaller icons in the next release.

smaragdus on 2015-08-04 00:12

The small icons are back! ;)

@Ennovy
Thanks for the tip, your workaround really worked! Anyway, I notified the developer about this problem.

gbrao on 2017-04-29 05:19

http://www.jam-software.com/knowledgebase/7085

In file "GlobalOptions.xml" Search for the text "True" and replace it with "False"
Save the file and close the editor. TreeSize Free will now start without the ribbon interface.

Ennovy on 2017-04-29 05:50

@gbrao Thank you

Search for the text UseRibbonUI and replace true with false
