GetFoldersize Review

Felix Cheng
Determine the size of folders and sub-folders on your hard drive
A review of GetFoldersize by Felix Cheng

GetFoldersize is a useful application which displays information about how much space specific folders are taking on your hard drive or removal mass storage device.

After having and using a system for an extended period of time, you may notice a lack of disk space. It can be difficult to find exactly what is taking up all of the space, especially in Windows. GetFoldersize helps by analyzing all data and calculating the total size of folders.

In the program interface, you can sort which directories are taking up the most space. It will also let you know what percentage of disk space that folder is using.

GetFoldersize also integrates with Windows Explorer so that you may right-click the folder and run the application. It will quickly display how much space a folder is occupying.

Overall, not a bad application at all and may help those with limited disk space.

GetFoldersize features and highlights:
  • Determine the size of folders and sub-folders on drives, media storage, CD/DVDs, network shares
  • Fast scan algorithm
  • Scan file and folder paths with an overall length of up to 32,000 characters and file and folder names containing Unicode characters
  • Scan an unlimited number of files and folders
  • Scan your hard drive for hard links, junctions and symbolic links
  • Show the number of file and/or folder of all files and sub folders
  • Display the file size in Bytes, Kilobytes, Megabytes and Gigabytes
