WinDirStat (Windows Directory Statistics) is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for Windows. On start up, WinDirStat reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views:
- The directory list, which resembles the tree view of the Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size,
- The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away,
- The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types.
Visit the WinDirStat blog for more up-to-date information about the program.
Note: If you are looking for an alternative to WinDirStat for Linux, then you are looking for KDirStat (apt-get install kdirstat on Debian-derivatives), and the alternative to WinDirStat for MacOS X is Disk Inventory X or GrandPerspective.
- Directory list view
- Treemap view
- Extension list view
Simple, fast, efficient. You get a great overview of what is taking up the most space, and can see what directories take up how much of your disk with ease.
How to rate this 6 starts?? :D Love you guys, thanks for making this software, my local disk C is almost full, but thanks to you now my it's no longer full, it's 70% now. Thank you :)
Works perfectly every time.
WinDirStat is a great utility, but I miss/need very much the possibility of exporting all the (visible) data straightforward into a file (tab or comma delimited format). Note. The current Report option needs an email client and is rather limited, while the screen table is very nice. And unfortunately, the NirSoft SysExporter utility don't show a 'Listview' of the WinDirStat data table.
Visual information is the best kind of information, and this application does that perfectly.
