7 remarkable features that you may not find in other software1Huge Capacity and the ability to Stop a scan:
Modern disk drives are huge. Finding folder sizes takes time as the software has to perform a deep scan. It is important that you should be able to cancel a long running scan in case you change your mind.2Save a Directory Listing:
Save a directory listing to a file and later view it on any system. Easy to send and share with other admin users.3Exclude standard, big folders:
Save your time by excluding standard big folders that you shouldn't clean up or that you don't want to analyze. For example, "C:\Windows."4Use a Flat List or Tree List as appropriate:
ShowSize presents information in both Tree and Flat lists. A flat list might be more useful in certain cases. For example, how do you find the largest file on a disk? Use the flat list "Only Files" and sort on size so that the largest files come on top. You can not perform such analysis in a Tree List where the largest file might be deep inside a folder and a sort will not bring it to the top.5Use advanced filters:
Apply advanced filters to find the information that you need. For example, show files greater than a certain size and modified between two given dates.6Display only significant items in charts:
A Top Items Chart that shows only the most significant items to give you an uncluttered view of the largest items whether they are folders, file types, files or file owners.7Skip Deduplicated Folders:
These are also known as Symbolic Links or Reparse Points. ShowSize has a setting to ignore Symbolic links which is same as ignoring Deduplicated folders. This gives you a more accurate disk space analysis as the deduplicated data is not scanned again.Now, see the most important list in ShowSize, Folder Sizes List. Click here to go to next card.
