DirLot: Free folder size visualization software
« on: March 08, 2007, 06:21 PM »
Here is another nice (and free) utility to visualize the space usage of your computer.

The DirLot utility shows specific size of elements in a folder (both files and subfolders) in entire volume of space occupied by the folder. In other words, this utility allows you to quickly estimate how many space a file or subfolder occupies in a folder,  or how entire volume of the folder is distributed among its elements.
Visualization of Subfolder Sizes...
DirLot shows columnar diagram Well, the definition is somewhat tricky. I hope, the screenshot of the utility will help you to catch the point. Full 'inverse' path to the currently shown folder is displayed at the top...

First thank you for your attention to my little utility - Dirlot. Yes, so happend I am its author. And as author I really have interest as to what you really think about it:
- was it of interest for you?
- have you tried it?
- what good, bad and what ugly?
- bug requests (o, sorry) bug reports? feature requests?

My apologies for my English (some bug reports?). My native language is JavaScript (joke).

And just today me happened to find still one HTA (HTml Application - just as Dirlot is) - Disk Reporter from JDH.


Here is an excerpt "Are you struggling to keep on top of server utilization?  Are you tired of being surprised when users run out of disk space? We have developed a free HTA utility that will analyze all logical drives from a list of servers (or workstations) and display a report showing drive size, a graphical depiction of drive utilization and a percentage of disk space free.  This HTA is available as a free download or you may be interested in the full featured standard Disk Reporter now at version 2."

Honest - I have absolutely no relation to its developers. I just guess a good idea persist somewhere in air and it happened to us to catch it independently.

Still, let me recall I would be glad to read some your suggestions in regard to Dirlot. Thank you.
