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
Does much more than I expected.
I love this tool, it has been a go to part of my tool set since I discovered it. Honestly I tend to use this more than windows search just because it does a better job at helping me wrap my head around my file organization (which has admittedly gotten a bit out of hand) and gives me a definitive answer as to what files I have and where, more obviously of course it is also one of the best when it's time to do file cleanup.as well. I really can think of no bad things to say about this utility. Great Job on this one!
Useful and easy to use.
This is an essential part of my Windows toolkit. Amazing work.
The kind of project that deserve to be reviewed even when you never take time to review projects. Using this for nearly 13 years so far i can remember. For sure one of the first usefull program to make use of DataViz techniques to help your brain sort out huge amount of every day datas. A must have
