    Hi,

    Good job.

    This is not about 1.4.1, but also earlier versions. HDGraph does not calculate size on disk, instead, it calculates original size. For instance, I have a 10 GB of log files in a compressed directory, but size on disk is about 4 GB. HDGraph shows that directory as 10 GB. This leads false results.

    Please consider fixing this.

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Aziz

    Hi Aziz,

    Thanks for your message. It's true that HDGraph doesn't calculate size on disk. It has not been designed for this.
    In fact, it's main purpose is not to give an exact view of the disk, but to give a really fast way to find the biggest things on disk.
    It's main objective is to boost the clean process. No more.
    However, it's planed to add features like "exclude folders" from scan, which could reduce the lack of precision induced by compressed folders.

    Cheers
    JYL
