TreeSize



Question / Problem

The exported files generated through a scheduled Treesize scan differ from those I generated in the user interface. How can I make sure the export have the same format?

Answer / Solution

The reason for this is usually that the task is running under a different user account than the TreeSize user interface. One possibility would be that either is running as Administrator while the other is not. 


You can ensure that the task uses the same settings for all users by exporting your current options from the UI via "Home" > "Options" > "Export" and using that file for your task as well. You can then use the TreeSize task scheduler dialog to modify an existing task and select "Use saved options" in combination with your exported options file.You can also manually modify the task via the Windows Task Scheduler and append the command line argument /OPTIONS <pathToOptionsFile>.
