WinDirStat Comments


Hangs on disks with a lot of hard links

Negative Comment by kwhitefooot
about WinDirStat and SpaceSniffer, SequoiaView Sep 2014

Windirstat, Spacesniffer, and SequiaView all hang part way through the analysis of my 2ooGB disk that has a lot of hard links.

I don't know if the hard links are the problem but that sems to be the only significant difference between this disk and disks on which all three work.


Fast cleanup

Context-menu entries for the "Windows Explorer" with “Fast Explorer”
With WinDirStat you have no context-menu entries in the "Windows Explorer" in the difference to jDiskReport (1).
One gets these entries rapidly and fast with "Fast Explorer” (2).

Runs quick (faster than JDiskReport) and stable on Vista business 64 bit.
I think it is the best application compared with the alternatives, and it allows to examine network drives for free.
TreeSize Free can only examine local drives.
