Thread: Look for large directory.

    Look for large directory.

    We've had a sudden drop in free space over the last week or two and I need
    to find it. How can I quickly find all the large directories on a volume?
    On standard volumes NRM show the size of the directory. However, NSS
    volumes do not show this information in NRM.

    I'm with Richard. Treesize pro is pretty good, however, there are lots
    of tools out there that can report this for you. Do a search with google

    Does NRM iventory help any? It should have, among other things, files
    less than 1 day, 1 week, etc.

    i forgot to say that they also have a free version on their site that
    does much of what the shareware version does - including directory size
    aggregation.

    A tool called Disk Triage (www.disktriage) has this and other useful
    features. More expensive than TreeSize Pro - but more features as well.
    (Ok maybe I am a little biased as I wrote it <g>)

    Check it out - 20 day full featured trial.
