WizTree finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive

WizTree finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive    
"Find the files and folders using the most space on your hard drive - QUICKLY!"
WizTree is a hard drive disk space analyser similar to WinDirStat but is MUCH faster.

Works on 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10

    Finds the files and folders using the most space on your hard drive
    VERY Fast! WizTree reads the master file table (MFT) directly from NTFS formatted hard drives (similar to the way Everything Search Engine works)
    Visual Treemap allows you to spot large files and large collections of smaller files at a glance
    Finds the largest files on your hard drive. Every single file on your hard drive can be sorted in order of size.
    File Name Search - quickly locate files by name or wildcard match
    Export file data to CSV (comma separated values) file or clipboard
    Import CSV file data back into WizTree for viewing
    Command line CSV file export
    Sort the contents of your entire hard drive by folder size and optionally delete files and folders
    Scan ALL hard drive file system types (NTFS, FAT, FAT32, network, etc) and/or individual folders

What is WizTree?
WizTree is the world's fastest disk space analyzer. It scans your hard drive and shows you which files and folders are using the most disk space. It does this in the FASTEST way possible - you simply won't find any other application of this type that's quicker! Use the information WizTree provides to quickly locate and remove "space hogs" from your hard drive.

WARNING: Take care not to remove any files that are required for the correct operation of your PC!

What makes WizTree so fast?
When scanning NTFS formatted hard drives (most modern hard drives use this format), 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.
Exporting WizTree File Data to CSV File
Press Ctrl+Alt+E or right click on a file/folder and select "Export to CSV file...". The selected files and/or folders will be exported to a comma separated value file (.CSV format). The information exported will depend on which view is currently active (Tree View or File View). If no files or folders are selected then ALL files and folders will be exported.
e.g. If the main "C:\" folder is selected, then the entire contents of C:\ will be exported
If "C:\Windows" and "C:\Users" are both selected then the contents of both of these folders will be exported

Format is as follows:
File Name, Size, Allocated, Modified, Attributes, Files, Folders

For folders, the file name will always end with a "\", e.g. "C:\Windows\"
For folders, the Size and Allocated fields will be the total size of all files and folders contained within that folder.
For files, the Size and Allocated fields will be for that individual file only.
The "Allocated" value will be prefixed by a leading 0 if the file is a "hard link", indicating that it does not take up any additional space on the hard drive and should not be counted as part of the total space used.
Modified date is in format "yyyy/mm/dd HH:mm:ss"
Attributes is stored as a value and is a combination of the following values added together:
1 = Read Only (R), 2 = Hidden (H), 4 = System (S), 32 = Archive (A), 2048 = Compressed (C)
e.g. If a file is Read Only and Hidden it will have attribute value = 3 (1 + 2)
The Files and Folders values only apply to folders and show the total number of files and folders within that folder.
Copying file/folder data to Clipboard
Press Ctrl+Alt+C or right click on a file/folder and select "Copy file and size info to clipboard". File size and name information will be copied to the clipboard in a human friendly format, suitable for pasting into emails, support forum posts, or text documents. The files will be indented to match the current tree structure, and only currently visible files within the selection will be included.

For example, if you expand the "C:\Users" folder within the tree by clicking on the "+" next to it, and then right click on it and select "Copy file and size info to clipboard", you will get something like this copied to the clipboard:

            64.82 GB    C:\Users
            59.15 GB      C:\Users\Bob
             5.62 GB      C:\Users\Public
            19.99 MB      C:\Users\UpdatusUser
            15.75 MB      C:\Users\Mcx1
            11.07 MB      C:\Users\DefaultAppPool
             2.70 MB      C:\Users\Default
           174 Bytes      desktop.ini
                   0      C:\Users\Default.migrated
                   0      C:\Users\Default User
                   0      C:\Users\All Users

         If this function is used on the "File View" then file and size information for the currently selected files will be copied to the clipboard, in a format similar to the following:

             6.75 GB  C:\pagefile.sys
             3.81 GB  C:\System Volume Information\{579260ea-c771-11e7-9c10-b4749f719216}{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}
             3.21 GB  C:\Users\Bob\VirtualBox VMs\XP\Snapshots\{086cc618-9a46-438b-acf1-d90f001990b7}.vdi
             2.93 GB  C:\hiberfil.sys
             2.23 GB  C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-4195858667-1952806270-3254110446-1001\$RYF1ZAO.vdi
