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.

Runs on: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WizTree.exe or WizTree64.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: SpaceSniffer, Xinorbis

Real mensch(en) öffnen Wiztree folders nur mit CLI, Jawhol ?...;-)

Thanks for checking, TP109, that's precisely what I meant.

I looked into it a bit more. WizTree will open a folder if it's dropped on the program's shortcut or on the executable itself (wiztree.exe). It doesn't appear to work for folders dropped on the GUI.

Nope. Drag and drop doesn't work with WizTree.

And any of you savants can confirm if drag'n'drop works, too? Like drag a folder onto 'WizTree.exe' to analyze the former?

Blimey,...for ages, was not even aware WizTree could be launched from the CLI...:-(
Thanks for your very useful tip, @TP109 ! ...;-)

For a quick analysis of a specific folder (folder and file sizes, file types, folder size, number of files etc.) use the command line with the name of the folder after the wiztree command, eg., wiztree C:\yourfolder.

After comparing both, WizTree 3 is definitely a lot faster. However, the SpaceSniffer interface updates live as more things are scanned; it's not like you have to wait forever to get feedback. I still enjoy SpaceSniffer's interface and display more; it gives me a much better general idea of where my space is going.

Looked promising, but wouldn't run at my workplace because, I assume, it assumes that it will be running as Admin in order to peer into the NTFS metadata.

NOTE: SpaceSniffer and WinDirStat does not require Admin.

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.
