Nowadays, hard disks keep getting bigger, but that doesn’t mean that you must waste the space on them. OverDisk is a light tool that allows you to view the occupied space.
The app has a simple interface that is quite easy to work with, thanks to the intuitive layout.
The program can scan your hard disk and provide a multi-level pie chart that shows the storage distribution of many directory levels. The files and directories are displayed differently, which makes them easy to distinguish.
You may browse through the different layers as you analyze the size of the folders and check which can be deleted to clear more space. The files and folders that are vital to the system or to certain apps are represented with red, while the color fades into yellow for those that aren’t as important.
Other details may be viewed from the interface, such as the number of directories and files, their size and the amount of wasted space in these areas. The color shades may be modified from the app’s “Settings” area.
The program can provide statistics regarding the state of the HDD, file size histograms and information regarding the data clusters on the disk. Furthermore, it can open files and folders from any area of the computer. Thus, you may immediately check the importance of the files and choose to delete or keep them.
The bottom line is that OverDisk is a nice program that can come in handy quite often. Inexperienced users should find it easy to figure out, thanks to its simplicity.
