WizTree is a hard drive disk space analyzer similar to WinDirStat but is MUCH faster. WizTree is the world’s fastest disk space analyzer. It scans your hard drive and shows you which files and folders are using the most disk space. It does this in the FASTEST way possible – you simply won’t find any other application of this type that’s quicker! Use the information Wiz Tree provides to quickly locate and remove “space hogs” from your hard drive.
When scanning NTFS formatted hard drives (most modern hard drives use this format), It reads the hard drive’s Master File Table (MFT) directly from the disk. The MFT is a special hidden file used by the NTFS file system to keep track of all files and folders on a hard drive. Scanning for files this way completely bypasses the operating system (Windows) and provides a huge performance boost.
Exporting WizTree File Data to CSV File
Press Ctrl+Alt+E or right-click on a file/folder and select “Export to CSV file…”. The selected files and/or folders will be exported to a comma-separated value file (.CSV format). The information exported will depend on which view is currently active (Tree View or File View). If no files or folders are selected then ALL files and folders will be exported.
Copying file/folder data to Clipboard
Press Ctrl+Alt+C or right-click on a file/folder and select “Copy file and size info to clipboard”. File size and name information will be copied to the clipboard in a human-friendly format, suitable for pasting into emails, support forum posts, or text documents. The files will be indented to match the current tree structure, and only currently visible files within the selection will be included.
Command Line Export
As of WizTree 3.18, it’s now possible to automatically export file data to the CSV file via the command line.
Command Line MFT Dump
As of WizTree version 3.22, it’s possible to dump the MFT file via the command line.
