Folder Size (freeware) now at version 3
« on: January 24, 2014, 02:20:36 AM »
Maybe this post belongs to the "normal" >General Software Discussion< thread. I am however placing it here because the new version 3 of Folder Size from MindGems (still) is both freeware and a (much simpler but otherwise) fine competitor to the $27.50 / $55 Folder Sizes 6 from Key Metric:

Folder Size version 3.0.0.0 is released – a major version packed with plenty of new features and improvements:

Unicode ( Multi-language ) Folder Size Analysis

Folder Size 2 did already scan files in multiple languages, but it could scan files in no more than 2 Languages at the same time. The second language had to be set as a language for non-unicode applications in the settings panel of Windows. This is no longer necessary and Folder Size 3 can scan files in any language at the same time.

How do you rate FolderSize Free versus WinDirStat?

The result from WinDir Stat is of course a lot fancier to look at, but other than that, I don't rate..., because I've paid good money for a license key to Key Metric Folder Sizes Pro, so I use that one, weather it's the better one or not!
