Since TreeSize holds file information of scanned directory structures in your system RAM, the theoretically maxiumum disk size that can be scanned or searched by TreeSize is only imitated by your systems memory.
The 32 bit edition of TreeSize can use a maximum of 2 GB RAM (default for Windows applications). This is sufficient for most Home or Small Business environments.
For larger file system structures with several million of files, we recommend the native TreeSize 64 bit edition which is available in TreeSize Professional.
Please make sure that you are using V5.0 or higher.
Please make sure that you activated the "Custom Search" on the "Search Options" tab.
Empty folders do not consume space on a drive, also some applications may store data in them sometimes. To search them anyway, use the custom search of the TreeSize File Search, go to the tab "Size / Attributes" and set a maximum size of 0 Bytes, uncheck "Include Files" and check-mark "Include folders".
There iscurrently only an exclude filter in the TreeSize options. But you can simply export a scan to an Excelfile and then use Excel 's Auto-Filter to filter out all directories containing "dwg".
You can configure those groups at: Tools > Options > View > File Groups
Don't hesitate to send us suggestions which extensions you expect in which category. We will be happy to include this in the next release.
If you are particularly interested in the largest files you can use "File Search > Largest Files" to get a list of the largest files in the scanned directory tree.
"Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later. Access denied".
Unfortunately the Internet Explorer does not display the raw XML file if it doesn't find the referenced style sheet. Removing the second line with the stylesheet path from the XML file will fix this.
With the TreeSize File Search please perform a custom search for the Excel files in question. You have now 2 easy options to get the results to Excel:
1. Press Ctrl+A to select all results, the right click on the results and choose to copy them to clipboard. You can now paste them to an Excel sheet.
2. Choose to save the search results and select the CSV-format. This can be opened in Excel by double clicking on it.
If you are performing this search frequently, you should save the search options. You can then even automate this process using the command line options of TreeSize.
We will add the ability to export the search results to a native Excel file in TreeSize V5.2.
The TreeSize File Search can search, report and delete files fulfilling certain criteria. For security reasons we have designed the deleting operation bypassing the recycle bin not to be scriptable - with the exception of the possibility to move the files, which is available through the command line option /MOVETO (Professional Edition only). Any search options saved to an XML file can be passed at the command line and the found results can be moved using a command line like this:
TreeSize.EXE /SEARCH /MOVETO "C:\Temp\TST\Moved" "C:\Temp\TSP\Files ending with TMP.xml".
You may pass a ZIP-file or the "Recycle Bin" as destination as well:
TreeSize.EXE /SEARCH /MOVETO "Recycle Bin" "C:\Temp\TSP\Files ending with TMP.xml"
You can use the command line switches (Professional Edition only)
/READONLY to do this. Sample:
TreeSize.exe /RESTRICTED /READONLY
The user of TreeSize will then not have access to Explorer context menu, may not rename or delete files or folders and the buttons for the Software applet and to connect a network drive are not available in the ribbon bar.
Please start the TreeSize File Search through the Tools or the Windows Start menu, activate only the "Biggest Files" search type, adjust the minimum size to 20 MB on the "Biggest Files" tab and start the search.
