Default Disk Space Analyzer

Disk Space Analyzer

Free Disk Analyzer is a free software program for computers running Microsoft Windows that will display information about the computerís storage devices. The interface looks like a pretty Windows Explorer clone concentrating on disk space usage on the computerís drives and folders.
The program displays all connected storage devices, their capacity, free space and occupied space in the beginning and it is up to the user to narrow down the data by using the computer browser in the left pane.
A click on a drive letter will start an in depth disk space analysis of that drive which will display all files and folders from that root level on sorted by their size. It is possible to sort by name, type or date modified instead. A click on a folder will load the contents of that folder and display the data accordingly.

The Windows Explorer context menu is available after a right-click on a file or folder which means it is possible to perform operations like opening or deleting them right in the programís interface.
The display mode can be switched to display only the files or folders sorted by size again. These two display modes are excellent to identify the largest (or smallest) files or folders on a specific drive or in a folder.
Files are sorted by their size and additional information like the filename, location and their relative size on the hard drive are listed. The folder display mode contains the same information plus information about the number of files and the average file size.
Links to drive cleanup and drive tools are provided for each drive letter in the general display mode. Cleanup will run the drive cleanup tool that is supplied with Windows while Disk Tools will display the disk properties of that disk.
