There are always times when the directory settings within an operation system need to be examined and cleaned. In this case it is important to be able to understand how the hard disk is being used the space that is currently occupied that the partitions that may need further attention. WinDirStat is able to accomplish all of these goals through the use of a highly intuitive user interface.

Free and Easy to Use

As this software is absolutely free it is a welcome alternative to similar applications that will require a paid subscription. Once the program is launched it begins to analyse every section within a current hard disk. In then breaks these segments down into what are known as 'trees'. Each tree is a separate directory and a graphical interface shows details such as the size of the file alongside how much free memory remains.

A Unique Display Method

Unlike standard bar or pie charts WinDirStat illustrates each directory as a rectangle of a different colour. The size of the rectangle is representative of its memory allocation. This software also analyses extension lists and file types. So the user will enjoy a detailed breakdown of all hard disk statistics in only moments.

WinDirStat is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for Microsoft Windows (all current variants).
