ShowSize Analyze, an Add On program for ShowSize. Use it for advanced filtering, printing and export of disk space data.


If you save a report file with ShowSize by using its File menu, you can then open the report in ShowSIze Analyze for more advanced features like better printing and data filters.

ShowSize Analyze offers advanced filtering, printing and export features. If you couldn't do certain advanced filtering operations in ShowSize, now you can do that with ShowSize Analyze. The idea is, collect the reports with ShowSize and analyze them better with ShowSize Analyze.

Open ShowSize Reports in a new interface

You need to save a ShowSize report file from ShowSize 5.5. Once you do that, you can open that file in ShowSize Analyze either by using its File menu or by using the button "Open in ShowSize Analyze" from the view report menu of ShowSize. The new ribbon menu interface makes it easy so that you can start using ShowSize Analyze immediately.

How to get Help on menu operations

The ribbon interface makes it easy to see all the options and operations available at a glance. Moreover, if you move your mouse cursor over an operation menu, you will see its help displayed in a pop up.

Switch between different folder and file lists--flat lists and tree lists

The Change List Type drop down menu lets you switch between various lists available for viewing. Note that you can choose between Hierarchical and Flat lists depending on your needs.

Choices available: You might ask, "How do I see File Types or Owners reports?" We are working on these and will make them available soon. Meanwhile, you can use the powerful filtering features. For example, you can use the Files Only report and filter it on File Types equal to .JPG or .PNG to see only those files and their totals. Filters make things possible that you can't do in ShowSize. I'm giving some examples later, in Advanced Filtering.

Report size limitations: ShowSize Analyze has advanced filtering and printing features. For example, when you filter the Folders and Files Hierarchical List, it shows Summary totals of the filtered items. But all these features are limited by the size of the memory available on your computer. Hence, this program would be too slow for very large report files. So in order to use it affectively, you should work with smaller report sets. In fact, we have put in some warning messages in the program. If you try to open a very large report file that might make it slow, we warn you and give you the option to view reports on a subfolder within the report.

The Home ribbon menu


Folder group: You can select a folder within a list and can drill down (go to that folder) so that the list is reduced to show the items within that folder only. Then you can go to the parent folder or directly go to the topmost folder in the report.

Clipboard group: The Copy drop down menu allows you to copy full selected rows, only file names or full file names to the clipboard. This helps you make batch operations on those files in other utilities.

Filter group: I have described Filters in detail, later on this page.

Appearance group: You can select a suitable font for the list and can enlarge, reduce or reset the font with simple buttons. This would be specially useful when you go to print the report and need more choices to fit the report in the paper width.

Size group: This program introduces more display options for the Size column than those available in ShowSize. They would be specially useful when you go to export the list in Excel format.


Date/time group: Similarly, there are nice options to display the Created and Modified columns in various date/time formats.


Support group: You get easy options to get help and support and to verify if any updates are available.

The View ribbon menu


Tree level group: You get operations to expand/collapse hierarchical lists to any level.

Columns group: You will see some innovative features here that you may not find even in database programs.
Show group: Choose to show or hide grid lines or icons in the list. These can be useful for printing, for example, when you don't want the icons on a text only printout.

Exporting the list of files and folders (updated in version 5.6)


Export operations are available on the Data ribbon menu. It can export the report to the latest Excel file format (.XLSX), CSV and XML. This allows you to do your own analysis in Excel and other programs.

Printing the lists of files and folders

ShowSize Analyze has nice printing features and can print unicode items correctly.

It also has an impressive Print Preview window as shown below.

However, we are dependent on third party libraries to provide this feature. So there are some limitations and some plus points of using such libraries. For example, even if you decide to print a small, selected page range, it makes a full preview first. So if you have a large report, you may still need to wait a long time to print only a few pages. The plus point is that in future, we can easily provide a PDF printing feature from the same Preview window.

Advanced Filtering of file and folder lists

The filtering features in ShowSize Analyze are very powerful. Click on the Filter button and a screen appears that lets you specify various conditions of different columns to see a filtered report.

Here are some notable points regarding filters:

  • "I searched on Google. Yours was the third one I downloaded and tried but the only one which really does what I was looking for. It's amazing that something so simple in concept was so hard to find, but I am very pleased with Showsize."
    David Lapish

  • "Your program is saving me a ton of time and the ownership information is invaluable to me! The latest version with that optional "owner" and "modified" columns are exactly what we needed! It's also very cool to work with a program that when you hit cancel on a long running operation with over 300,000 entries, that it actually works! The program is great!"
    William Devlin

  • "ShowSize is a real top-notch, well-written, and extremely useable utility. You did a great job on it! I use it quite frequently and the integration with Windows Explorer plus the various report views it gives make it that much more useful."
    George Lunsford

Is your hard drive or cloud drive filling up fast? Do you wonder what is taking up all that disk space? ShowSize will help you find that information easily.

ShowSize displays 7 kinds of hierarchical and flat lists of files and folders that help you quickly find the most space consuming folders, files, file types and file owners.

For complete details on all the lists, please see the slides at the top of the Home page.

ShowSize is heavy-duty software

Modern disk drives are huge, running into terabytes of disk space and millions of folders and files. DO NOT USE "Toy programs" to analyze disk space on such huge disks. ShowSize is designed for heavy use with its features like virtual lists with huge capacity and Exclude Folders to save time on scanning.
