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".
You can use an "Include" filter in the TreeSize options. Under "Home > Options > Filter", you can add a new filter that only includes certain folders.
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.
You can increase the number of files for the Top 100 statistic under "Options > Top Files > Show the top X files".
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.
According to our license agreement you need at least one license for each client, on which our software is available for execution, including Terminal Server clients and Remote Desktop clients. You may install one license on up to 3 machines and use it non-simultaneously for personal use.
You do not need additional licenses to scan remote machines over the network. The Professional edition can be installed on a USB stick and so used on other computers without installation.
In case you install our software on a machine on which multiple users may use it simultaneously (e.g. a Terminal Server or a VM), you will need one license for each user that is allowed to run our software.
No you don't have to uninstall the old verion before. Simply run the setup of the new version and all relevant files will be replaced.
