DiskView — a collection of several tools

DiskView is a suite of several components that work with each other to provide disk space usage analysis, management and visualization for Windows Explorer

  • DiskView Visualizer shows a visual map of the current folder. It is designed to convey rich visual information about the current folder and its contents graphically. The Visualizer comes with an extensive set of functions in its integrated toolbar.
  • DiskView Folders pane provides a replacement to the Folders pane in Windows Explorer. It graphically represents the folder size as bars next to each folder. It also has options to sort folders by their size.
  • DiskView Toolbar is like a Google toolbar for Windows Explorer. With it, you can toggle the Visualizer and DiskView Folders pane on and off, and launch Disk Analyzer, configure options, access online help among other things.
  • DiskView Columns provides "DiskView Size" and "Relative Size" columns for the Details view of Windows Explorer. While Windows does not put size information for Folders in its Size column, DiskView provides the actual size occupied on disk by each file and folder, and a graphical representation in the Relative Size column.
  • DiskView Analyzer is a helper application that analyzes your files and folders. It can analyze your disks as well as mapped network drives.
  • DiskView FSInfo is a high performance, COM based software component that maintains and provides file, folder and disk related information. This component is available for scripting and custom reporting in DiskView Professional.
