GetFoldersize allows organizing disk storage space by reporting file and folder sizes. The application has a nice multi-language interface, which is similar to that of Windows Explorer in many respects. Although I wouldn’t say it’s difficult to use, the help documentation available online is definitely deficient. The tool supports various types of storage media, including hard disks, optical discs, USB devices and even networked drives.

The program can be started by clicking its icon but it’s also possible to right click on the desired folder and pick the right menu entry. Moreover, the tool can also be used from the command line. Unluckily, scanning a location to calculate file and folder sizes may take some time depending on the amount of contents and the storage capacity of the device. The size can be shown in the preferred unit, like gigabytes, megabytes, kilobytes and bytes. Unfortunately, the program cannot create a graph to show disk usage in a visual way.

All in all, GetFoldersize is really useful to make a better management of disk space. In this regard, it lets you identify the largest files and folders and take decisions about them. Luckily, undesired or duplicate files can be deleted from within the tool interface. Besides, the program allows applying filters to exclude or include given contents. Finally, you can create reports and export them to various formats.
