Ever wanted to know where all the used space on your hard disk was hiding?
i.Disk scans directory trees and displays the total space used by
each directory in an easy to use form. You can drill down into the
directorys to understand the layout of space. And when you want
to clean up your disk there are same handy tools there to help. The
directory called '.' is the space used by files in the base directory
you are scanning from.
Browse to a directory -or- click on one of the disks listed on the
left to start scanning. Once the scan is complete the red cancel
button will grey out. The entry marked "." relates to the files in the
directory your scanning from and not any of the subdirectories. If you
attempt to delete this then you'll be deleting the directory you scanning
from and all files and folders contained within. This is probably not
what you intended. Especially if you scanning a whole disk (i.e. C:\)
Then you can open any sub-directories by
clicking the '+' next to the name.
Each entry in the list has a right click menu to:
Open an File Explorer view to view the folder.
Copies the full path to the clipboard.
Open Command Prompt/Terminal
Opens the appropriate command line interface at the given folder.
Touch or Delete By Extension
Opens the manage by extension dialog:
Where you can select multiple extensions and then either touch
(set the file's modified date) or delete the files. You can filter the entries
and also sort by clicking the column headings.
This deletes all of the files and directories in the subdirectory
then removes the subdirectory as well.
Open the native folder properties dialog.
