WizTree Reviews

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.

Best out of the 5 alternatives i have tried, imo.

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.

Great utility. In about 10 minutes from download I found exactly the files I was looking for and reclaimed the space I needed. I've used WinDirStat in the past but was concerned that it is no longer active. WizTree is lightning fast, tells you exactly what you need to know and presents it clearly. I'm sure the rest of the features are equally useful.

Whenever something hogs space, this is my go-to tool. It's simple and fast. Sure, has a few bugs here and there, but nothing drastic (mainly just windows delete process window, which sometimes can show it deleting multitudes bigger, than what it really is).

The best of all: to scan the same huge dir it takes only 1 sec VS 30 secs of other "professional" and freeware alternatives!

Scans 100 gigabytes in 10 seconds. This quickness if only on NTFS but it's not like I need to analyze hundreds of gigabytes of FAT or something.
