jDirSize is a small tool that can help you analyze the usage of disk space for a specific ‘root’ directory on your hard drive. The program will show a list of the subdirectories and files in the ‘root’ which occupy most of your disk space. In addition it will analyze which file types take up most space and how often (or not) these files are modified.
In addition it will analyze which file types take up most space and how often (or not) these files are modified. The result of the analysis is displayed in both tables and charts. Charts can be printed and tables can be exported to a text file.
During the analysis, jDirSize will access and read the contents of a specified directory on your file system, however it will never modify your data in any way!
jDirSize can be run from the rixhon.be web site using Sun’s Java WebStart technology, without you having to install the program on your computer. Alternatively, you can download jDirSize. Put the ‘jDirSize.jar’ file in a directory of your choice, and run the program with the command:’java -jar DirSize.jar’.
