Editors' Review

+

If your PC only has one hard disk, the file management tools built into Windows are probably sufficient, but if you manage multiple disks on one or more machines, you need something stronger. AvniTech Solutions' ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer is a specialized disk and file management tool that can quickly study a disk drive and display detailed information about its partitions, folders, and file contents, including advanced sorting and reporting capabilities that go beyond Windows.

ShowSize opens with an attractive, cleanly configured interface and a scan-initiating dialog that includes a selectable Helpful Hint. This tool tip is welcome and helps quickly familiarize users with the program; however, its apparently nonselectable "always-on-top" appearance might annoy multitaskers. It's easily defeated, though, by controls on the interface as well as the file menu. This menu and some familiar icons constitute ShowSize's control suite, with a left-hand folder explorer and a main display rounding out the layout. ShowSize makes frequent use of pop-up notifications to warn users of any changes to files, folders, or drives; we like this feature since it offers an attention-grabbing notification and clearly explains the matter. Among this program's thoughtful extras is a dialog button to copy these messages to the clipboard. ShowSize offers seven tabbed, printable report selections with draggable partitions: Folder Sizes, Only Files, File Types, Folders and Files, Active Folders, and Only Folders. A toolbar on the main display lets you choose between various filters, views, and column options; optional graphs show folder or file size. Nothing about ShowSize seems difficult, but there's plenty of assistance, even a blog accessible from the Help menu.

As disk drives get bigger and multidrive systems become more common, users need more and better information about what's stored on them. Windows does a pretty good job, but if you need more, ShowSize has you covered.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer 5.1.5. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

"find files created by applications"

Pros

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

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.
