I have a command-line scheduled task running a custom search for several department drives. When manually running I can choose what columns to export to the .CSV file. However, in the command-line, I don 't see a way to do this. Currently, my search options are being read from the saved .XML file settings.

By default TreeSize will use the columns that have been set under "Tools > Options > Export" when it was used the last time. To force the columns on the command line, export your current options through "Tools > Options > Export" to a file and supply this config file on the command line using the command line option /OPTIONS .

On our file systems we have archive file stubs which take up 8k. Is there a way of scanning files for size on disk? I am currently showing 800GB on a 300GB file system, as it sees the entire file size.

Please switch to "View > Allocated Space" and see if this helps. If not then the system does not report the size correctly.

how do I remove previously scanned folders - they always appear in the drop-down list. Branch > remove from treesize does not work

This is a recently used list. If it bothers you, you can adjust the number of entries under: View > Options > Number of folders in the recently used list

Can I synchronize two folders with TreeSize?

No, TreeSize cannot synchronize folder.

How can I change the file ages that treesize defaults to on the chart. A request for a more expansive chart showing by years instead of months.

The date intervals can be adjusted under: Tools > Options > Age of Files.

I tried to make an excel-report for a file-server drive and got the message that the excelsheet couldnt handle more that 65535 lines and hence the report failed. Is there anything I can do to make TreeSizer handle more rows?

You have to switch to the Excel 2007+ format by using the .XLSX file extensions.

After installing the full prof version I can no longer use/open my "total commander " program. strange relation or?

We have just installed both Total Commander and TreeSize Pro on a Windows XP test system and both is working fine.

Do you have a version available that works with Macintosh client / on MacOS?

We are sorry, but TreeSize is a Windows application and can be run on Windows systems only. We do not yet provide a Macintosh version of TreeSize. Information on disk space managemnet on MacOS can be found here.

I am using the evaluation version of Treesize Pro. I want to run a report that will give me a listing of the number of files accessed between a certain date and the total size of the files. The evaluation version lets me see files accessed 1-6 months ago, 6 months to 1 year, etc. but I need to get more granular. Can the pro version do what I need?

You can adjust the intervals used for the "age of files" statistics under: Tools > Options > Age of Files


The custom search type of the TreeSize File Search, which can be opened through the Windows Start or the TreeSize Tools menu, is also very suitable to get a list of files accessed or not accessed in a certain time range.

Can I create a report that shows the difference between two folders?

We are sorry, but TreeSize is not a folder comparison tool, so this is not possible. TreeSize can however show the size increases of a file system branch between two scans, using the XML export feature.

Can I install the new version over an existing version or do I need to uninstall first?

Our software products are designed to be installed over an existing version. There should be no more than one major version between the old and the new version.  

Is it possible to schedule a scan for duplicate files on a network?

Yes. Open the TreeSize Professional File search using the Windows Start menu or the TreeSize Tools menu, on the "Scan Options" tab activate only the duplicate file search, add the network paths to to the list of "Drives and Paths to Search" and start the scan.
