Alternatives to TreeSize for all platforms with any license

  • FreeCommander

    An alternative windows file manager with advanced features similar to total commander.

    • Not only does it report folder sizes, but it's also a file manager with tremendous feature, and has toolbars above, bellow, splitting a pain, and to the left right which are fully customize-able with internal commands or external programs & scripts. And it takes screen shots, and so much more. I'm so impressed with it, and I'm very difficult to please. soshowalFeb 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • WizTree is faster and much more accurate than Treesize as it properly handles hard linked files (doesn't count them more than once) so the total allocated size reported by WizTree will actually match the space used on the drive as reported by Windows.

    • Much faster than all others I've tried, even on network shares. The visualization looks very similar to windirstat, almost identical. Guest • May 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

TreeSize Free can show only the size of local folders or local drives, not of network folders
Very good free applications to examine the foldersize of NETWORK drives are:
(1) WinDirStat:
(2) JDiskReport:
(3) FreeCommander:
A very good commercial application to examine the foldersize of NETWORK drives is:
The free TreeSize Mobile for "Windows Mobile" is able to manage the disk space on your smartphone:


Spam! Treesize is the shiznit. Troll away.

Thank you for review!
I have a question is it required to be installed or it's portable? This makes sense for me because I've got many computers to check and do not want to install the copy on everyone. Many people writes it crashes all the time but I'd like to check it out. I think the software like this will not be needed in the nearest future because people start relying on cloud storage like Ideals that are more efficient and can be reached from everywhere leaving your own hdd free.

Very simple and effective little application, I have been using it for years!
Also works on Win7, if anybody was wondering.

Beside many other useful functions FreeCommander shows (also sorted) how much space the files and directories consume on your disk drives, similar to JDiskReport or TreeSizeFree, but as opposed to "Treesize Free" also on network disk drives.
