ShowSize 5.7 improves all the features for Unicode file names

Previous versions of ShowSize properly listed file names with Unicode (non-ANSI characters) without problem. But many operations like printing, export text, export html didn’t work correctly for such file names. Some operations on the right-click menu were also not allowed for such file and folder names. Now, in ShowSize 5.7, Unicode is supported in all these operations. The only place where we didn’t implement Unicode yet is in the Pie Chart because that uses a third party component.

Smooth migration from older versions

As a result of the above Unicode changes, many settings and lists were required to be changed to Unicode. We have worked hard to make sure that such settings are migrated correctly from the old version to the new version without loss of data. For example, now the exclude folders feature supports folders with Unicode names too. If you were excluding some folders earlier, you will see that their name settings are preserved even though their internal storage has become Unicode.
