DriveSort is a lightweight and portable piece of software that is able to sort the files of a directory by size or date. You can use it to find out which files are taking up the most space on your hard drive or USB flash disk, for instance. It is simple to work with this app, even if your experience is limited.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can simply drop the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and run it immediately.
Otherwise, you can move DriveSort to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any workstation with minimum effort.
What's important to keep in mind is that the Windows Registry section does not get entry updates, and files do not remain on the hard disk after removing the app.
The GUI of the utility is represented by a standard window with a plain and simple layout, where you can select a drive or folder to scan using the tree view. Once you specify the sorting order - by size (largest files first) or by date (newest files first) - you can proceed with the scanning procedure by clicking a button.
This task may take a file, depending on the size of the selected location. DriveSort reveals in the main frame the size, format, date of creation and size for each file. Unfortunately, you cannot print this list or save it to an external file (TXT format) for further scrutiny.
As expected, DriveSort is very light on the system resources, using minimum CPU and RAM. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang or crash. Unfortunately, DriveSort comprises limited features, although we must take into account that it has not been updated for a long time.
