Visdir Free Disk Space Finder
Visdir Free Disk Space Finder is an approachable Windows tool that can be used for finding out the statistics regarding your computer's storage, namely the largest existing files. This way you can have an easier time trying to figure out what to delete in order to free up space.
Rapid setup and classic GUI
The installation procedure does not take a long time to finish. However, judging by its appearance, it is quite obviously that Visdir Free Disk Space Finder has not been updated for a very long time.
At startup you can select the exact items that you want to scan, between all folders on all drives (including or excluding floppy disk, CD-ROM and network drives) and user-defined directories and drives.
View charts to examine disk space
The program runs the scanner and displays results in a tree view. For each selected directory you can view a pie chart with the file size distribution, along with the size of the whole directory or current subfolder (in the status bar). You can switch the chart type from pie to horizontal or vertical bar.
What's more, you can open the current directory in Windows Explorer with the clip of a button and without leaving Visdir Free Disk Space Finder's interface, as well as run a new scan wizard seamlessly. Helpful hints are displayed on the bottom part of the screen.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool takes reasonable time to complete a scan job, during which it remains light on the system resources. It worked well on Windows 7 during our evaluation, despite the fact that it has not been updated for a very long time; its interface needs some refinements. Otherwise, it can be quite handy for users looking to manage disk space better.
