Alternatively, TreeSize Free Portable is pre-configured to be portable, automatically adjusts paths and is stealth.

Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Creates an empty JAM Software\TreeSize Free folder in %AppData%. If the context menu integration is enabled/disabled, settings will be written to that folder.
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware/Liteware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch TreeSizeFree.exe.

Optionally, to disable automatic update check on start-up:

  • Select "Help" and run "Check for Update...", wait for the popup message Uncheck the "Check for updates regularly" box

  1. Close the program
  2. Open GlobalOptions.xml in Notepad and look for the element CheckForUpdatesAutomatically
  3. Change True to False and save
  4. Launch TreeSizeFree.exe

@gbrao Thank you

Search for the text UseRibbonUI and replace true with false

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.

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

@smaragdus: Confirmed, but when you rename the file "TreeSizeFree.DE" "" or something else :) or delete it the interface is in english

IMHO the text to disable automatic update check on start-up
(second option) should be:

Close the program
Open GlobalOptions.xml in Notepad and look for the element CheckForUpdatesAutomatically
Change True to False and save
Launch TreeSizeFree.exe

The new version will scan network shares, cloud drives, and network attached storage. It's a great software - definitely one of my favorites!
