Files - Disk Space Tools (16)

WizTree v3.41 Updated

Special on 5 May 2021
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 May 2021
  • 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.

No idea what to tell you, 3.35 does not do this, 3.36 does... Guess we need more people to chime in here.

I'm also going to delete my comments "soon-ish" here because this is not the place to do troubleshooting, posting IPs, ect. Maybe the forums is better place for back and forth or PMs.

I've posted in the forum about this issue. I'd like to know if anyone else is having this problem.

up to v3.7 now

AndTheWolf on 2018-02-02 13:39

Now at v3.8

I discarded in the first minute. When you double-click on C, there pops a "Do you want to scan c?" what is a most idiot question in this situation. Does not allow to scan one folder in the start.
The bar chat show only 6 bars and one called "others". When doble click in this others, nothing happens.
So, just remove the "software" and keep the "Liteware/Adware"

@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

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!
