Use WizTree To Find The Files And Folders Using The Most Space On Your Hard Drive

Is your computer running slower due to low disk space? If so, run the portable version of WizTree to determine where the space hogs are located. Just be careful in what you end up deleting.

I am quite impressed with WizTree in the fact that it includes a visual treemap that allows you to spot large files and large collections of smaller files at a glance.

  • Finds the files and folders using the most space on your hard drive
  • VERY Fast! WizTree reads the master file table (MFT) directly from NTFS formatted hard drives (similar to the way Everything Search Engine works)
  • Visual Treemap allows you to spot large files and large collections of smaller files at a glance
  • Finds the largest files on your hard drive. Every single file on your hard drive can be sorted in order of size.
  • File Name Search – quickly locate files by name or wildcard match
  • Sort the contents of your entire hard drive by folder size and optionally delete files and folders
  • Scan ALL hard drive file system types (NTFS, FAT, FAT32, network, etc) and/or individual folders

    This looks so much like the tried and true open source WinDirStat which you have covered in the past that it certainly invites a direct comparison. Why might I prefer WizTree?

      WizTree works by reading the MFT (master file table) directly from NTFS formatted hard drives so it’s extremely quick. What WinDirStat takes minutes to do WizTree will do in seconds.
