Are you Juggling with file and folders to free up some disk space? Well it becomes hard to analyze the big useless files, checking the size of every folder and file, then deleting it. Here comes Disk Space Fan to help you. Disk Space Fan is a nifty disk space analysis tool, which uses Ringschart to represent the disk space. You can easily navigate the folders and find which file or folder is taking huge space. Files and folders can be deleted right from the same place.




Disk Space Fan Interface

Disk Space Fan scans the selected drive or directory and displays the contents in the form of Ringschart.

The core or central circle of the ringschart displays the current or root folder colored gray in the chart. The subfolders are represented by multilevel nested circles. The size of folders and files decides the size/angle of nested rings or clusters. Each folder is painted with different colors. On the circumference of the ringschart the files are present and are painted in gray color. If the size of any file is less 1/180th of the current root folder/core size it's ignored in the chart. As the chart displays only 5 levels, if further levels are possible, a line on the circumference is appended.

If you hover mouse cursor over any of the cluster/ring, core, or the file it will display information about it's location, name, size, number of files present inside the folder, type of file if hovering over a file.
