visualize hard drive space usage Ever wondered why your hard disk is full? Or what directory is taking up most of the space? When using conventional disk browsing tools, such as Windows Explorer, these questions may be hard to answer. With SequoiaView however, they can be answered almost immediately. SequoiaView uses a visualization technique called cushion treemaps to provide you with a single picture of the entire contents of your hard drive. You can use it to locate those large files that you haven't accessed in one year, or to quickly locate the largest picture files on your drive. When using Windows Explorer, the user cannot obtain a global overview of the entire contents of his disk, because the number of files and directories that can be shown simultaneously is limited by the available screen space. Treemaps make more efficient use of the available screen space. Instead of showing a file system as a long list of files and directories, files are displayed as rectangles, with the size of the rectangle being proportional to the size of the file. We can then display more information at once if we use all available space. SequoiaView also allows you to apply different color schemes to easily identify certain file types. Copyright

Wow 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 17, 2008 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
Once you get used to the view, it's easy to navigate and understand what everything's about. I haven't used it much in the last few weeks , but when I do, it's great to have. The way the usagespace, etc... is mapped is very cool. show Review details
