Folders and files list allows you to sort and display folders and files together, in one list that can be Huge!
If you are seeing this list on the root of a disk drive, this list can be huge. In fact, it can be so huge that Ordinary or toy programs will choke up on such a list. That's why such a list is missing in Windows Explorer or File Manager.
ShowSize is able to show this list due to its advanced virtual listing technology.
Windows File Manager is not designed to show it because it will slow down the display and file operations which is not good for a file manager.
The purpose of ShowSize is different. It scans once and then shows you all this information. It doesn't rescan til you ask it to.
Use ShowSize and you will get many such insights into file programs and their pros and cons. Let's see what common features ShowSize provides for all its lists. Click here to proceed.
Features available on all the lists
Moving to a different list on the Tab does not cause a rescan. Already scanned data is used to fill up the list.
You can exclude certain known folders to save on scanning time. For example, you can exclude Windows system and program folders because you can't directly control space in these folders anyway.
Drill down by expanding a list.
Many useful operations are available on the selected items on the toolbar and the right-click menu as shown in the picture.
Display a pie chart on up to 32 largest items based on size or number of files in them.
For complete details and examples on these common features, please see the slides at the top of the Home page.
