    I didn't realize how fast it is before I used this app. It is super fast. Initial search on 128GB SSD took only 5 seconds. It is not even comparable with WinDirStat because it took almost 3 and half minutes in WinDirStat. That it mind boggling. UI is almost same as WinDirStat so you won't be sacrificing visuals, too.

    This is insanely fast, stable, and I just freed up years of space and clutter that would have taken ages to map out. Amazing software!

    Like WinDirStat, but ridonkulously quicker. The biggest difference I can find is that it doesn't always keep subfolders from a main subfolder together, but that's nowhere near a deal breaker

    There is two version and can be downloaded separately. The free version has enough features to become an alternative to WinDirStat. But is really user friendly.
