I tried this out for a bit, it's not a bad analyzer. The problem I found is it takes a bit longer to scan the space. The wheel type graph is alright but a bit more confusing than others.
Once it's loaded, it works fast but I still don't like the whole UI. I've used many others and I can't say I give this above a 4, (3 and a half would be ideal) compared to other free space analyzers.
Still decent and free and a great alternative to others.
This is an AMAZING program.
Thought I knew my disk(s) well, but after running this little gem, discovered I was wasting almost 8 gigs on my system disk. OverDisk populated the data window and a huge folder called Recycler stood out clearly. It was at the top level directory on the C: disk. Searching for it (including hidden files and folders) showed nothing.
Some research though revealed it was left over from Norton (by Symantec). Even if you deinstall Norton, that folder stays and remains hidden. It's no longer needed of course.
I used a DOS Command and deleted the directory. Got back almost 8 gigs of space. Did a scan and a defrag and the system zooms along much faster now.
Thanks for a great little program. :-)
In over 20+ years of computing, I think I've left maybe two review comments on software.
Though I've found good stuff, I've rarely found anything worth the time to comment about.
But OverDisk is DEFNITELY worth my time.
I was looking for a replacement for JDiskReport, since that software uses Java and I've long since removed Java, and didn't want to put Java back on my machine just for JDiskReport (I don't need it for any web sites I vist regularly). I was also looking for something that show file charts, not just folder charts.
OverDisk was EXACTLY . . . I mean EXACTLY . . . what I was looking for.
My compliments to the author, and also to SnapFiles, since I looked all over (download.com, filehippo, etc.) and couldn't find what I wanted till I came here.
And OverDisk is even better than JDiskReport, plus an added benefit is that OverDisk DOES NOT require Java.
Well done, author!
