After months--or years--of use, our computers often become cluttered with unnecessary files that take up valuable hard drive space and negatively affect system performance. We know that we need to perform file maintenance, but that's a task that easier said than done. TreeSize Personal is an easy way to see exactly what's taking up space on your computer and figure out how to deal with it.
The program's interface is a little cluttered at first glance, but it's fairly easy to figure out. The main features are organized in tabs that allow users to view the contents of their computers in a variety of ways. For example, users can view several different styles of charts to see what kind of files are taking up the most space, as well as view files by age, extension, or other characteristics. TreeSize has a variety of different search functions, allowing users to search for and then weed out duplicate files, Internet files, temporary files, and more. The program is definitely geared toward more experienced users; although the Help file is well-written and thorough, novices might want to seek out a program that offers a little more guidance. Overall, though, we found TreeSize Personal to be an effective way to analyze and clean up the contents of our hard drive.
TreeSize Personal is free to try. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to intermediate and advanced users.
