    "Download link was wrong (Oct 2013)"

    October 02, 2013   |   By Cookie_Doe

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    I need this installed every time a HDD gets 80+ % full.

    But the download link was wrong at a Dutch FTP site. This one works Copy/paste:

    w3.win.tue.nl/nl/onderzoek/onderzoek_informatica/visualization/sequoiaview/download_sequoiaview/

    Cons

    no problems on the dozen PCs I have it

    "What does it look like inside?"

    April 28, 2013   |   By metalraven

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    Allows user to see comparable size of files via graphics just as to what is on the system. User specific.

    Cons

    One con. It is slow to bring up the graphics. (as if it is a con), really, NONE.

    Summary

    Have been using this program for years, found it on a disk in the 90's. And every time I have moved to a new Deck, I have gotten the latest version. I am very happy with this program. I can see the files in a good representation. I like the pillowed version. I can also change the color scheme to my desired specifications. This program also can show me what is taking up the most memory. Check this one out. If you do not like it you can remove it, but I feel you will be like me, and keep on using it over the years.

    "Absolutely necessary. Still using with Win7-64."

    January 02, 2013   |   By Bubba_Gump

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    Maps out all files on a particular drive graphically using boxes. Bigger the box, the bigger the file. Great for finding wasted space. Prog is 6 years old but still works great even with 64bit Win-7.

    Cons

    Mapping out a large drive can seem to take forever even on a fast PC (5-10 minutes). Program starts in a window (even if you tell it to start Maximized, it resizes the window to about 1/4 the screen). Clicking the Maximize button the first time then shrinks the window even smaller. You must Maximize a second time to get it full screen. Minor annoyances for a free program, but annoying non-the-less.

    Summary

    Must-have tool for any tuner/tweaker.

    "Find crap you didn't know was on your computer"

    February 14, 2012   |   By sld12day

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    Thorough, informative, helpful. Easy to right-click on files to get more info. Strangely enough, it's kinda pretty to look at.

    Cons

    None so far!

    Summary

    I found image files I had no idea were still on my laptop - they'd been sitting there unviewed since 2007. Really helped me decide how to make room on my hard drive.

    "Find wasted space easy and effectively"

    March 19, 2010   |   By kingofi88

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    I absolutely love sequoia view and have put it on every computer I own. It finds things that would take a while to hunt down and displays them as a piece of art. Gray boxes show you what files are the largest and tells you where they are.

    Cons

    None, I have an SSD and I am not sure if I am causing harm by running it. I do have TRIM support so I think I'm in the clear.

    "Insanely fast and great for culling files - brilliant!"

    January 05, 2010   |   By Steve_Holt

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    For displaying every file on your drives in an easy to use geometric view, I'm still amazed how fast it can display every file compared to any desktop search. Yet it's a tiny file that takes a second to install.

    Cons

    absolutely none!

    Summary

    You have no reason <not> to get this. It's utterly and totally worth it (and free!).

    "Brilliant - see your largest files at a glance"

    December 05, 2009   |   By mdmckea

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    Windows is particularly poor at identifying which files are consuming most disk space. This product represents your files as differently sized 'boxes', allowing you to identify the largest ones and browse straight to their folders

    Cons

    I like everything about this product - Microsoft should include is as part of their baseline utilities.

    "STILL Easiest Program to Use..."

    December 21, 2008   |   By James98765

    Version: SequoiaView 1.3

    Pros

    - Quick visual view of your drive conents
    - Can be separated by drives and directories
    - Color mapping makes assesment of space even easier
    - "Boxes" arranged in groups according to directories (trees)
    - Small, quick and easy install

    Cons

    - GUI is a bit outdated (but honestly, who cares?)

    Summary

    This is a no-frills, no-nonsense utility that allows you to see where your hard drive space is allocated. I've used it on many client's machines when they could not figure out why their HD space was low, even after using standard clean-up utilities.

    I install SequoiaView and we are able to almost immediately identify problem files and directories (folders) that can be trimmed down, moved and/or backed up to portable media. I would HIGHLY recommend this software - especially since it has no problems with Vista 64 (tested and works perfectly).
