    Yes, WIZTREE is a very good program.

    @ Rasheed187:
    Look at the size of the folder called "C:\System Volume Information". That's where Windows stores the information for the System Restore Points (SRPs). To be able to remove one or more of those SRPs I use CCleaner.
    I have seen those SRPs grow to over a giant 500 GB on a 1 TB drive. Yikes.

    Thanks for the tip, I must have missed this post. Wise Disk Cleaner did manage to clean up about 15GB, but I don't know if this folder was included, so I will need to check it manually.

    WizTree 4.08 Released (February 14, 2022)
    Website
    Download
    What's New
    WizTree 4.08 (14 February 2022)
    • Added new "Filter Scan Results" option which allows entire scan results to be filtered using a user defined filter.
      Toggle the filter on or off by clicking on the filter icon under the Scan button, or select Options->Filter Scan Results, or press Ctrl+Shift+F
      The "Include Filter" will include only matching files in the results
      The "Exclude Filter" will exclude any matching files from the results
      Click on the "Apply Filter" button (or press Enter after making a filter change) to apply any filter changes made. Files are matched using the entire file path and file name. The filters support all standard file search functionality, such as wild cards, file size, file date etc. See this link for all search options: https://diskanalyzer.com/guide#search
      e.g. To filter only files of type mp3 or wav, larger than 5MB, excluding anything in the C:\Windows folder, you'd enter:
      Include Filter: *.mp3|*.wav >5m
      Exclude Filter: C:\Windows\
    • Wildcard search for file extensions was not working correctly when "match entire path" option was used - fixed
      e.g. searching for *.c would include files including ".c" anywhere in the file name, which would include *.cpp or *.c.bak files too.
    • Total space, space used, space free display fields widened to correctly display very large TB drive values when displaying as Bytes
    • Window position was not being restored to correct position if Windows taskbar was not positioned at bottom of screen - fixed
    • Fixed some dark mode display issues on older versions of Windows (2003, XP)

    WizTree 4.09 Released (August 15, 2022)
    Website
    Download
    What's New
    WizTree 4.09 (15 August 2022)
    • Disk free space on treemap will now be displayed separately for each selection when using the "select multiple" option
    • Export functions updated to always format floating point values (like percentages) using a point as currency separator. Previously it used the system locale character which is a comma in some countries. This extra comma would create problems when importing the data into other applications (like spreadsheets)
    • Double clicking a file or folder in the tree or file view will now automatically open it
    • Files/folders can now be dragged out of WizTree and into Windows Explorer windows to copy/move them. Hold Shift key while dragging to move the file, otherwise it will be copied. Dragging will only work when dragged from the file name column. Dragging in other columns will select all files in the selection rectangle.
    • Copy (Ctrl+C)/Cut (Ctrl+X) menu items added to File Menu. Copy path shortcut changed from Ctrl+C to Ctrl+Alt+C
    • Copy Path function will no longer include a trailing carriage return if only one item is selected
    • Drive name now displayed in tree view and treemap
    • Menu accelerator keys were not working in dark mode (fixed)
    • new command line parameter added to select size or allocated space for treemap image export (default is size):
      /treemapimageshowallocated=[0|1]
      e.g.
      WizTree64.exe C: /treemapimagefile="C:\temp\cdriveimage_%d.png" /treemapimagewidth=1024 /treemapimageheight=768 /treemapimagefreespace=0 /treemapimageshowallocated=1

    WizTree 4.11 Released (October 26, 2022)
    Website
    Download
    What's New
    WizTree 4.11 (26 October 2022)
    • "Today" file search filter (=today) was not working correctly in some time zones - fixed
    • Command line parameters for /filter and /filterexclude now support literal double quotes. This is useful when filtering paths containing spaces, to prevent the filter from treating the space as an "AND" operator.

      Use a single quote character to represent the double quote, like this:
      WizTree64.exe /filter="'C:\Program Files\'|'C:\Program Files (x86)\'"
      The example above would set the "include filter" to
      "C:\Program Files\"|"C:\Program Files (x86)\"
      The filter above will match file names containing "C:\Program Files\" OR "C:\Program Files (x86)\"

      Two single quotes in a row will be treated as one literal single quote:
      WizTree64.exe /filter="'C:\Program Files\'|'C:\Program Files (x86)\'|'C:\Bob''s Folder\'"
      This would set the "include filter" to
      "C:\Program Files\"|"C:\Program Files (x86)"|"C:\Bob's Folder\"

      Without the quotes the filtering will not work as expected:
      C:\Program Files\|C:\Program Files (x86)\
      This would match any file names containing "C:\Program" AND ( "Files\" OR "C:\Program" ) AND "Files" AND "(x86)\"

      Previously the way to work around this problem was to replace the spaces with wildcard question marks, like this:
      WizTree64.exe /filter="C:\Program?Files\|C:\Program?Files?(x86)\"

    • WizTree 4.09/4.10 would crash when run as "SYSTEM" user ("NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM") due to some issues with the newly added drag/drop functionality - fixed
    • Fixed some cosmetic issues with Italian translation

    FolderSize by MINDGEMS is a hard act to follow and is the preferred one in this camp.
