WizTree gives you more control over how you see your files, in addition to letting you learn more about them from one look. It's a much more powerful way to look at your files than Window's traditional file viewer. It's a great download if you're trying to clean up your hard drive from large files or just want a new way to look at your file menu.
This program is a hierarchical file viewer, so you can view your files in any folder or drive from largest to smallest. You can organize your files in more traditional styles -- alphabetical, chronological, etc. -- as well. The file window is a treat to look at and use, as it makes it easy to find any file you want in a matter of seconds. It also shows some files that are buried in a sea of menus in Windows. If you want to go even deeper, WizTree gives you easy access to the command prompt. The program even shows you how much space your files take up in multiple ways, which is helpful if you can't do the math, yourself.
WizTree is incredibly useful if you're trying to find large files to help you create space on a crowded hard drive. It wins a lot of points merely for its stylish looks. The fact that it's a more helpful, comfortable way to look at your files pushes it miles ahead of Windows' default file viewer. If you could easily turn it into the default on your computer, it'd be truly fantastic.
WizTree scans your entire hard drive and shows you which files and folders are using the most disk space. In fact, we believe WizTree to be the fastest application of this type currently available! Use the information WizTree provides to quickly locate and remove "space hogs" from your hard drive. It features finds the files and folders using the most space on your hard drive, finds the top 1000 largest files on your hard drive, and sort the contents of your entire hard drive by folder size and optionally delete files and folders. WizTree reads the hard drive's Master File Table (MFT) directly from the disk. The MFT is a special hidden file used by the NTFS file system to keep track of all files and folders on a hard drive. Scanning for files this way completely bypasses the operating system (Windows) and provides a huge performance boost.
