Editors' Review

+

ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer scans deeply and displays customizable views and reports. It's powerful enough for data professionals, network admins, and advanced users with extensive disk arrays.

Pros

Not a toy: ShowSize documents its superiority to "toy programs," pointing out that deep, thorough scanning takes time and that lightweight tools can freeze your PC mid-scan with no way out (except maybe a hard restart).

Charts and bars: We could configure many data views, including several types and levels of bar graphs, and customize columns, headings, and sort order.

Explorer mode: Right-clicking any displayed item accesses a menu full of commands, including the ability to view or open files or folders in Explorer or manage them directly in Explorer mode.

Cons

Subscription: An annual subscription instead of a one-time purchase price means you must buy ShowSize again, year after year.

Similar freeware: Some free disk space utilities come close to ShowSize in capabilities, and some (like TreeSize Free) are easier to use and read.

Bottom Line

ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer may be the most powerful tool of its type we've encountered. For pros, it's hardly overpriced, but most users should start with freeware and move up as their needs and skills evolve.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer 5.6.

"find files created by applications"

May 14, 2009  |  By downloade123r

Pros

excellent app. shows statistics on locations of each file extension, and the locations of each file of that extension type.

none found

This application can used to determine which applications have created what files, and thus how much room is being taken up by these applications and the applications files are being stored (for backup and restore/re-installation purposes).

"Useful"

May 30, 2006  |  By erjoalgo

 |  Version: ShowSize PE 4.2.3

Pros

This program allows the user to view the size of all the folders in a hard drive. Very useful for locating the source of mayor disk usage, and free some disk space. Basic tool that Windows should include.
