Cool graphics, but... 4 stars by Constantine Feb 10, 2011 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Years go by, OverDisk is getting old. Neither the program, nor site has been updated since 2005. That's why I'm looking for a replacement. TDP x-Ray seems ALMOST like one. It's blazing fast (same or faster than OverDisk), it shows results progressively, so you don't need to wait for full scan to see first results. It has cool sunburst graph interface (like OverDisk). Also, shadows, anti-aliasing, more colors, extra ring graphs on hover. It has Explorer shell integration. BUT: - You cannot get "UP" by clicking middle center circle. FAIL. - Unreadable hover text. FAIL. - Too many random colors, which don't mean anything, and while official site says "Part colors are selected so that two adjacent colors always differ", that is just not true. Compare with OverDisk - red-to-yellow coloring is based on the file's folder space share. BAD. - Menu bar is ugly, gray, vertical, and aligned right. BAD. - There are no clickable breadcrumb navigation AND file path is compressed. BAD. - No tree view. Minor annoyance. - No top-list (like in Disk Space Fan). - About screen with unselectable text, unclickable links, and it doesn't prevent main view from capturing mouse events. FAIL. Overall, it needs some additional love from developers, before it can be recommended over OverDisk. show Review details
The software developer responded to this review on Sep 22, 2011: Thank you for your comment and constructive critique. I agree with some of your complaints, bud dont't know if there will be time to fix them in the near future. I am currently working on other projects. You cannot get "UP" by clicking middle center circle. - you can however use mousewheel to go UP , I will add clickable center in the next version (hope it will be soon - Unreadable hover text. I don t understand what you mean, maybe a screenshot will help. On my machines, the text is perfectly readable. Maybe some OpenGL related issue ? About the colors. You can customize them in the xray.cfg file. I was experimenting with different coloring schemes - based on file age, etc. But didn't find it that useful. Thanks, Petr Kures
Nice eye candy 5 stars by StoneViewer Sep 10, 2009 (Read all my 2 reviews)
A nice rendition of the old "overdisk" program. Integration into explorer is nice; however the naggie little "try x-ray pro!" is way overboard. It's one thing to have it on the main screen and quite another to have it in the drop-down context menu list for every action--for this alone, I would not recommend this program--until the "over-nagging" is removed. I'm not too sure about "recycle" and "delete" both being options in the context menu. Other than the above, quite an enjoyable product show Review details
The software developer responded to this review on Sep 22, 2011: I would say, that the x-Ray is as old maybe older than the old Overdisk program (2003/2004 :-) Other than that. I also don't like the nagging, it was removed in the latest version.
The best disk space analyzer 5 stars by ezyduzzit Sep 05, 2009 (Read all my 16 reviews)
This little tool is fast and efficient, giving a neat graphical display of the folders and files on your drive. You can pinpoint directories quickly by hovering your mouse cursor over them; moreover, subfolders are displayed in a pop up graph and can be accessed seamlessly without delay, allowing you to quickly drill down to any location. You can also access the explorer shell from within the interface (explore, delete etc) and view everything in fullscreen mode. Works a treat on Windows 7 RC1 - it should be a part of the Windows explorer shell in my opinion. It's that good. show Review details
