After all these years without an update, it's STILL the best of them all.

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.

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).


Fast Explorer is discontinued, unstable on Win-7 x64 on 2 attempts
Fast Explorer does not recognise some 64-bit apps
