A must-have if you're concerned about disk space issues.

What do you like best?

Very easy to install and use. There's a free version which allows you to see the results of the disk scan in a tree format and allows you to sort based on size, %, number of folders, etc. You can delete files/folders from directly within the user interface as well. The scan for the disk goes very quickly and you can scan multiple disks if you have them. I haven't used the Professional version but apparently you can get reports, do automated file cleanup, and search for duplicate files (which would be very nice). The installer file size is also small, which is key if the computer is already very low on disk space.

What do you dislike?

The tree view can get pretty busy when diving down within a folder. Other than that I really don't dislike the software at all, especially since it is free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with the free version if you use need something to find out what is taking up so much space on your hard drive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software that we use on a daily basis can take up a lot of hard drive space so every once in a while we make sure to run TreeSize to figure out if there are files we can delete, archive, or move to a cloud/server location to free up local hard drive space. Moving 100% to the cloud is not an option for us as there are many times we have to have the files locally due to network unavailability at a client's site.

More like "Forestsize"

What do you like best?

The best feature for me with this software is it's ability to scan a parent folder and give me a comprehensive breakdown of every single file in it. This helps me pinpoint exactly the file(s) I need to analyze for possible export to an excel spreadsheet.

What do you dislike?

I feel that the UI is a little clunky, especially when it comes to exporting information to an excel spreadsheet. I feel that the process could be a little easier with the report customization features be a little more user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those who need to get information regarding the files inside a CD/DVD, USB Drive, or a network folder, Treesize will do it. Not only will it give you a list of every file in the folder, it will give other information such as data size and last time modified.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rather than going through each folder and creating a large index of every file in it, with Treesize Pro, all I need to do is have the software scan the parent folder and a list of every file can be produced,

There's really nothing else like it

What do you like best?

Super fast - much faster than any other tool. The only thing that comes close is command line, but that frequently doesn't cut it and isn't as full featured. There's no better tool to quickly understand and report on volume contents.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to have better presets so that I can cycle through a variety of report settings that I use frequently. Better support for forensic containers would also be a plus, but that's not the core purpose of the tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a test run, but I've surveyed the market and don't think there are real competitors. You can homebrew a solution but it will be far more effort and very custom. This makes reporting and decision making far easier, and it is easy to communicate results to client.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Other than forensics tools, this is the most full featured option for this type of work. And it is very very fast. Far faster and easier than running your own custom report in Excel. Previously we would accomplish this with an initial export from Encase or nuix, which would take much longer. Then the report would be customized by a project manager, which meant that reports were very inconsistent. Treesize takes care of all of these issues.

Decent file storage manager

What do you like best?

The ability to search for old and obsolete files or files larger than a certain size in order to clean up hard disk drive space. Duplicate files can also be identified across the entire HDD and be selected for elimination if necessary

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve when trying to search for certain file types. There's no undo button for permanent actions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Minimizing clutter and old files on personal computers to allow for faster HDD retrieval. Identifying and backing up files that are critical to external or networked storage.

Great, Underrated Tool

What do you like best?

This is such a robut tool that does so much. I particularly like the organizational breakouts it gives. It really makes for easy searches and data indentification.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes more options isn't always for the better. This tool has a lot of options and can, at times, be overwhelming and hard to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool is really robust and easy to get overwhelmed, but is really helpful for data breakdowns. Give it a shot!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We receive a lot of data and it's really hard to get a picture of what type of data, file extensions, size, ect are present in a dataset. This tool is able to give me a complete breakdown of what is present within a dataset. It works fairly fast depending on dataset size and saves us a lot of time and is able to allow us advanced reporting for our clients.

Useful Utility App When You Remember You Have It

What do you like best?

This is just a handy utility for digging a bit deeper into your hard drive to find out what is sucking up all of your space and clogging up your processor...

Views are customized as well so you can see space allocations by percent, file size, etc.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. UX is a bit primitive, but utilities like this can get away with it...

Recommendations to others considering the product

No risk using this. Just download and try to remember you have it when you need to dig deeper and troubleshoot your hard drive issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Windows explorer just doesn't dig deep enough when you are troubleshooting space and speed issues. This is a handy tool to troubleshoot things much faster.
