WizTree Reviews

Scanning was extremely fast even on a network share -- about 100 times faster than Windirstat.

After having used Windirstat for "decades" as the best disk usage visualization tool by far, I must say that WizTree is probably the #1 tool to beat now.

On Windirstat, only the Treemap looks a tiny bit more polished on HiDPI screens, because you can make Windirstat show the colored 'file pillows' with a black grid.

The Windirstat look:

Same folder in WizTree look:

Also, when comparing the two Treemaps, in WizTree there seems to be something cut off at the bottom.

Other than that, WizTree seems to be perfect.

Extremely file analysis tool - find both big and small

Note that recent search tools have been integrated into this program that are especially exciting but I'll focus on what I mostly use the program for: tracking down space hogs. Everytime I have a drive filling up too quickly, it helps to first look at what's standing in my way of a few gigs of space. Often it's a temporary file or a program / folder I'm never going to use again. WizTree helps me track down and zap those quickly. I love it.

Initial analysis very fast but crashed later when I selected a file to display.
