Applications to see which files take up more space on your hard drive


These are some tools that will be useful to us when it comes to knowing the space that our files are occupying in Windows

In the next lines we are going to show you a series of free programs that will be very useful for us to control the use of the hard disk in Windows computers , all depending on the file format .

We're actually talking about Programs that analyze the free space on disk drives to find out which file format they are taking up the most, and how much space they spend individually. This will help us to know more accurately, what we are spending the gigs of our hard drives , and what can we eliminate to free up space on them.

>

At the same time it should be noted that all the programs presented here are very easy to use and also, in order to get the most out of them, we don't have to spend a single euro . Therefore we will review several applications of this type so you can opt for the one that interests you most in each case.

TreeSize

Let's start with a proposal that, as its name suggests, shows us the content of our hard drives in tree structure and where we can also see at a glance, the size of all the folders we have. This will help us when it comes to managing content and knowing where we are wasting disk space.

It is a tool that has been between us for many years and has has improved over time so that we can interpret the use of the different units that we have installed in our team .

WinDirStat

This program has a operating mode similar to the File Explorer that is integrated into Windows and to which we have been so used for a long time, with the difference that an independent section is reserved in its interface to show disk usage by every file extension . At the same time we can adjust the size of this additional section so that we can check the file types that occupy more or less space in a specific drive or folder, separating each extension with a color different to make everything easier to interpret.

On the other hand, a color-coded map is created based on the use of the disk for each file extension, something that is located at the bottom of the main interface of the program.

Disk Savvy

In In this case we are going to talk about Disk Savvy , another interesting option to see the disk usage by file extension, a tool that is characterized by how fast it processes the disk information and shows us the results that They interest us. It is divided into several different sections that show the selected folder or drive , the processed directories , the files , the processing time, etc. All this will help us to know exactly the amount of disk space that each of the formats we have stored has spent.

At the same time we have the possibility to categorize the files by size , date of creation , time of last access, etc.

Folder Size Explorer

And we will continue with Folder Size Explorer, an excellent alternative for the tasks in this case when it comes to checking the use of disk space cataloged by file format . Say that at the same time the program canif used as a substitute for Windows Explorer, as it makes available all the functions necessary for the treatment of drives, folders and files.

But of course, focusing on what We are interested in these lines, we can use it to know those who occupy our files by extension , which is really its main functionality. For all this the free program puts at our disposal a section that we can open whenever we want and will be visible in the right section of the interface , where we will see a list of all the available extensions in the selected folder or hard drive. Thus, together with each of these file formats , the total size occupied in each case is shown independently.
