1) The "Drives and Paths to Include" are the drives and directories that will be searched. To search for individual files please activate the "Custom Search" type and add the file names on the "Names" tab of the custom file search.
2) To search directories not present in the "Drives and Paths to Include" section please add them using the buttons below the list.
3) Currently you can only copy the contents of the drives panel of the TreeSize main application. But we will add this feature to the TreeSize file search in V5.2 as well.
The behaviormay be caused through the fact that the name of the EXE changed fromTSizePro.exe in V4 to TreeSize.exe in V5.There isstill a Tsizepro.exe for compatibility reasons, but this simply callsTreeSize.exe with the given parameters and the exits.
Yes, you can sort TreeSize lists by any shown column by clicking on the header of the column. In case of the "Last Access " column, the list is sorted from the oldest to the newest date value. Click the header again to sort the list from the newest to the oldest. This behavior is equivalent to windows explorer.
If you run the installation file and provide the parameters
/PASSWORD=<YourInstallPasswordHere> on the command line, the software will perform an installation without any questions and just adhering to default values. Using
/VERYSILENT instead of
/SILENT prevents also a visual feedback. The option
/DIR="X:\InstallPath" can be used to specify an alternative target directory for installation.
Please use the command line parameter
/SIZEUNIT N to set the desired size unit in your exports. The parameter N is an integer value, denoting these settings:
0 = Bytes; 1 = KB; 2 = MB; 3 =GB.
If you don't use this option, size information will be made the same way, like it was done in the last export/report.
The shown sizes refer to the used hard disk space as shown in the Directory Tree. These sizes indeed could be different, depending on compression and/or cluster size on the harddrive (see also the topic on Wasted Space in the product manual).
Enabling the TreeSize column for every folder can be done in the folder options menu of the Windows Explorer.
The Personal Edition has the same features as the Professional Edition, except that it cannot be used with Windows server operating systems, does not support scans of network shares which are part of a Windows domain, provides no command line options and no scheduled scans.
The Personal edition scans network drives if the computer it runs on is not part of a Windows domain and the remote system is not a Windows server. This enables customers of the Personal Edition to scan network drives in their home network, including NAS systems based on Linux and Samba.
Please find a comparison chart here.
The XML files were meant to store the complete results of a scan for recalling them later and to compare them with the latest scan results. So there was (and is) no need for limiting the result display to a certain scan level.
If you are interested only in the uppermost level of the file system, CSV or Excel exports are quite comfortable, too.
If you simply want to reduce the total size of the XML file, you could deactivate the statistics on users and file types.
Consider the following scenario:
You want to scan the drive C:\ and your installation directory of TreeSize is
Your directory for your reports is
"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.
/SEARCH opens the filesearch panel of TreeSize Professional. If you add the ":start" option to thiscall, the search will be executed immediately. TreeSize uses by default thesame settings like it did in the last file search and will search the samedrives or directories. Changes to these settings can be made via the commandline typing:treesize /SEARCH :start c:\ d:\
