# WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics
The application itself is distributed under the terms of the GPL v2,
but parts of the source code are also available under more lenient license terms.
The documentation/help is distributed under the terms of the GNU FDL.
Note: you are not at liberty to upgrade the GPL version to anything later
than v2 at this moment.
The logo and all derivatives are available under the terms of the Creative
Commons license CC BY 3.0.
WinDirStat is a program that allows you to find disk space hogs at a glance.
It achieves that by displaying a drive, drives or directories in a treemap
that assigns bigger areas to bigger files and directories. Making those areas
visually separate by coloring and other means allows you to see literally at
a glance what the space hogs are and where to dig deeper.
The directory tree is simultanously shown as a treelist and as a treemap.
One can effortlessly gain an impression of the proportions on the hard disk(s).
The original author of WinDirStat was Bernhard Seifert and it was inspired by
KDirStat and SequoiaView.\ Design and many details are based on KDirStat, so WinDirStat is "a KDirStat re-programmed for MS Windows".
Meanwhile alternatives also exist for OS X and many programs make use of
treemaps for a variety of visualization needs.
The FLOSS alternatives for other operating systems are thus:
We're not aware of an alternative for Windows at this moment, but
Please refer to the project Wiki page Building.
The project Wiki on
Bitbucket features a whole section on the topic of contributing. If you don't
agree on the requirements, feel free to contact a project member regardless
before you put any substantial effort into your potential contribution.
WinDirStat currently runs on all flavors of Windows, but does have some
problems on more recent versions of Windows (8 and later) that will be
addresses by a future release.
