Modern disk drives are huge. If you scan the complete file list on such huge drives with any software, it’s going to be a very long wait. That’s why your strategy should now change. Instead of scanning the whole disk, you should only scan the folders that you want to check for disk space. For example, if you are scanning your system disk on which Windows is installed, you should “exclude” (not scan) the folders Windows, Program Files, and Program Data from the scan.
That’s why we have worked hard to improve the Exclude Folders feature in ShowSize Pro 5.7. Get complete details on the Exclude Folders feature in the Overview of new features.
