WizTree - Free NTFS only disk space analyzer
« on: December 01, 2012, 11:15:44 AM »
I noticed WizTree on Addictive Tips and decided to give it a try.  It is NTFS only because it uses MFTs to get the info.  The description wasn't exaggerated. This thing is lightning fast.  It doesn't have the pretty graphics of WinDirStat, that I've used for years.  But you can watch the progress bar slide across in seconds rather than minutes.

Here's the article

Very fast indeed: scanned the whole drive in 1.23 sec!  :)
As you pointed out, not really a substitute for WinDirStat, but's a useful tool, especially the top 1000 largest files view.
Thanks!

I like the portable version. I think I'll copy the folder onto a USB stick since it's so small.
