Combining WinDirStat's pillow diagrams with Everything

Post by nmc » Mon Jul 30, 2018 1:40 am

There is a thread in Reddit's sysadmin subreddit about how slow WinDirStat is when creating disk usage diagrams.

https://www.reddit.com/r/WinDirStat/com ... ing_files/

As Everything is able to read the MFT (as well as do a normal folder/file scan), perhaps a future version could incorporate some type of disk usage visualisation. There seems to be a market for it.

This is probably a bit out of scope for Everything, though.

Take a look at WizTree. It also includes a similar graphical display of disk usage (which I have disabled, BTW).

(BTW: you can also search for file in WizTree, similar to Everything ( in the File View tab).
But they also have WizFile. That's even more similar to Everything..

If you want something similar in the current version of Everything, you can index foldersize (Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes: enable Index Folder Size) and sort the results by size.

Altap Salamander has that, but I've never figured out a use for it?
