Your server or personal computer just stopped working because the system partition ran out of space. You need to free up disk space urgently and this is done easiest by deleting some large files!
Luckily, TreeSize is installed on your machine. A minute later you look at a list that presents you - among other useful information - the 100 largest files on your machine. And there's your first candidate: the 14 GB log-file of the software you installed on your primary partition two weeks ago and promptly forgot about.
TreeSize assists you in systematically and quickly freeing up disk space in this situation. TreeSize lists the 100 largest files of a scanned drive or path sorted by size descending. Of course the value 100 can be changed in the Options dialog of TreeSize. In addition, you can now select whether the size or the used space should be used as a reference variable. For each file a lot of information can be shown, among them:
- The name
- The file type
- The full path
- The file's size and the space allocated on disk for the file
- The creation, last change, and last access dates
- File owner
The "Top 100 Files"-tab shows the 100 largest files, thus helping you check for unwanted disk space usage and quick emergency disk cleaning of unnecessary clutter.
Using the TreeSize File Search you can search for large and unwanted files using additional search criteria, like file age or file type. Besides deleting the unwanted files, it allows you to move them to another disk space like a USB drive. This can be useful if you are not sure if someone might still need some of the files.
