TreeSize



Question / Problem

Is TreeSize able to show file permissions, and not just ownership?

Answer / Solution

Yes. This web page provides an overview on the permissions reporting capabilities of TreeSize.

Right clicking on the header of the Details list will show a popup menu that allows to choose additional columns showing the permissions.
 
If you export a scan to Excel, these columns will be included as well. (To get a full report in Excel, you need to check-mark the option "Tools > Options > Export > Excel > Export the full directory branch" and optionally "Include single files in export"). Excel Auto-Filter is a good tool to filter the exported lists for specific users or groups. Our product SpaceObServer has better reporting capabilities since V6, for details please see here.
