TreeSize



Question / Problem

I want to export my scan results into an Excel spread sheet. The whole process of scan invoking and exporting should be automatic. How can I do this?

Answer / Solution

Consider the following scenario:

You want to scan the drive C:\ and your installation directory of TreeSize is
"C:\Programs\JAMSoftware\TreeSize Professional\TreeSize.exe"
Your directory for your reports is
"D:\My Company\Reports\TREESIZE\sheet1.xls",
with "sheet1.xls" as your sheet for reports.

In this case, the full command line would look like this: "C:\Programs\JAMSoftware\TreeSize Professional\TreeSize.exe" /EXCEL "D:\MyCompany\Reports\TREESIZE\sheet1.xls" "C:\"

Paths containing directory names with spaces must be embraced by double quotes, so it is a consistent and careful habit, to double-quote all paths, to avoid problems. Instead of retyping the command line every time you want to scan, you can save it into a .bat-file and start it by double-clicking.
