    Way to stay on top of this. Most of us will pass on this side of the pond but generosity abounds to better accommodate other people's language. Cool :cool:

    WizTree v3.33 Released (May 14, 2020)
    Website & Download
    WizTree 3.33 (14 May 2020)
    • Network and substituted drives that may not have been visible to WizTree when running as administrator will now be selectable. This is a work around for a Windows bug/feature that does not allow elevated applications to access network and substituted drives that were created by a non elevated process. See: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee844140(v=ws.10).aspx
      In such a case WizTree will display the contents of the network drive using the UNC name (e.g. \\servername\sharename) instead of the mapped drive letter. Similarly substituted drives will display the contents of the local folder the drive is mapped to instead of the mapped drive letter.
    • Added option to display values in TB. Values larger than 1024GB will be displayed in TB in dynamic value display mode.
    • /filterexclude would not work unless a /filter was specified (fixed)
    • Folder names will now be matched against the filter specification using a trailing backslash
      (setting a /filterexclude to "C:\windows\" would export the "C:\windows\" folder record incorrectly as it would filter using "C:\windows" instead of "c:\windows\")
    • Files without an extension can now be filtered for by using "*." filter. This did not work previously as the period was not included in the filename used to match against the filter.
    • Importing a CSV file that was exported with folders only ( "/exportfiles=0") will now display total file and folder info correctly
    • Importing a CSV file that did not contain complete folder information could cause file names to become corrupted. This would prevent context menu from working correctly.
    • Importing a CSV file from a network share (e.g. \\servername\sharename) would drop the leading "\\" when importing (fixed)
    • row height can be set in the WizTree3.ini file ("rowheight=xx"). Default is 19. Useful if you've increased the fontheight setting in this file.
    • when sorting by allocated size, the percentage of parent calculation will now use allocated size values

    I wish they would update WizFile which hasn't been updated since 2018

    It looked like something that had potential but I'll just stick with Everything.

    me too. I just don't feel comfortable using it with all the major changes in the recent Windows update and it hasn't been updated in 2 years.

    I do too. But also in addition to WizTree.

    Just like my backup programs (DS & Macrium) its always of benefit to some to have on hand a pair of continuously developing software programs. Everything is still a whopper of an instant Presto! here's our findings search app. Amazing! But I also like the tree layout of WizTree!

    Anyways I need help, well not really help but more of a request.

    Version 3.36 of WizTree was released (What a slacker mood.), and for me this version "phones home" (firewall will ask you if you want to allow "some" connection) despite having all kind of options in WizTree like "check for updates" turned off.

    I can reproduce this but the developer cannot, can others chime in here and tell me if their firewall does the same? This is obviously a question for those who have a super tight firewall already and don't just allow random outbound connections without a rule.

    For what it's worth I use the portable x64 version.

    EDIT: Oh and a screenshot of the connection/pop-up you get (if you get) would be most helpful!

    Until they stop that. Almost all softs/tools keep programming that into it.

    You can use WFC and never be concerned again with that unwelcome issue again

    Can you confirm or not? I'm not asking for a firewall to block things, I know and do block these.

    I don't see it phoning home. I monitored it with LiveTcpUdpWatch and TcpLogView Nirsofer utilities.

    Thanks for checking, I was already in contact with the dev and we worked it out and it's fixed in 3.37 now. It was an Windows API thing.

    There's a new version out now

    WizTree 3.37 (23 February 2021)
    • Tweaked tree map display drawing. Will now only display drawing progress when dealing with more than 1,000,000 files as it's quicker to not display anything.
    • Drive selection box would not work correctly if "display drive letters" option in Windows File Explorer was turned off (fixed)
    • Digital signature verification method changed as previous Windows API method (WinVerifyTrust) would trigger unwanted Internet access if required digital certificates were not already installed on the PC

    I see the last couple of builds have dark mode. It looks good.

    Personally I hate Dark mode, in everything, people just cannot do a dark mode theme correctly, and they way Windows does it is laughable, but hey, options are always good, just don't take them away!
