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:
This sets the modified time on a set of files in the subdirectory and
all it's children to the current time. You can specify multiple
extensions by separating with space character, e.g.:
*.gif *.png *.html
This deletes some or all of the files in the subdirectory and all it's
children. The directories are left intact. You can specify multiple
extensions by separating with space character.
This deletes all of the files and directories in the subdirectory
then removes the subdirectory as well.
