File Tree App complements Windows File Explorer!

File Tree is not a "replacement" for Windows File Explorer. Rather, it works well along with File Explorer. For example, you can right-click to open any file in Windows File Explorer to do file operations.

The idea is, use File Tree for its special lists. At any time, quickly open the location of a listed file in File Explorer to do file operations.

What is more, File Tree implements some features missing in File Explorer

These features are Tree List of Folders & Files, Choice of Font, Display of Folder Sizes, Top Items Chart and Printing the List.
  • Display size of files and folders in Bytes, KB, MB, GB or TB
  • Right-click to open any file or folder in Windows File Explorer. Even a keyboard shortcut is there for this operation. ShowSize Disk Space Analyzer
  • Use as a "Folder Size Utility" to hunt down larger folders and files occupying the most disk space
  • Display a Top Items chart, using it as a "Disk Space Analyzer" to see what items are consuming the most significant disk space
  • All the size analysis features help you clean up the disk to obtain more disk space
  • Many more features, see "Other features" below
Use as Folder Size Software showing a tree list of Files and Subfolders

Other features include a clickable Top Items Chart to show most significant folders and files, text size selection, better file size display, ability to open an item in Windows File Explorer, and more. See a complete list below.

File Tree List

This is a Tree List of Files and Subfolders as shown above. It appears after you scan a disk folder with File Tree. You can sort files and folders together in the same list to find big files and folders. In the picture, you can see the largest subfolders and files at the top of the list. A "Find Names" panel on the right helps you locate a file by name or partial name. The expand menu lets you expand the list to any level.

Top Items Chart

This is a Pie Chart that shows only the most significant folders and files in terms of size. The advantage is an uncluttered view because it automatically eliminates the folders much lower in size. Further, you can click on a Pie Section to drill down into a folder for further analysis of its Subfolders. For example, in the following picture, I clicked on "VMWin10" folder to get 2 choices. I can either go and scan this folder to get reports on it. Or, I can find and select it in the File Tree list so that I can expand the Tree to see its contents.

Other Features (all of them available in Free Trial)

  • The ribbon menu makes it easy to find operations. Further, it can be collapsed by a button on the top right as shown in the Chart screenshot.
  • You can revisit an earlier scanned Folder quickly by a drop down list at the top. This saves time and you don't have to browse for a folder again when you want to scan it.
  • The Size display is smart enough to choose the most appropriate unit for display in Bytes, KB, MB, GB or TB. You can also force it to display Size in a particular unit only by the View menu.
  • The font for the Lists can be enlarged quickly on the View menu.
  • Any file or folder item in the list can be opened in Windows File Explorer by a right-click menu or by a keyboard shortcut. This helps switch back and forth between File Tree and File Explorer to perform file operations.
  • A "Find Name" panel on the right can be used to locate a file name by entering a few characters identifying it.
  • Full path names can be copied of one or more selected files and folders by a right-click menu. This helps to make file lists for other applications such as Zip utilities or Batch files.
  • Disk scans can be canceled if you change your mind after seeing a scan that has been running too long. This allows you to cancel and select another folder or Subfolder.
  • An option on the View menu can be used to turn on a "Proportional Bar" representation of the Size so that the size of items can be visually compared. In addition, the percent display on the bar can be turned on.
  • Skips folders not permitted for scan by Windows. A list of such skipped folders can be seen and their properties can be opened by a right-click menu to examine the security settings.
  • The interface remembers your preferences for the window size, left pane size, column widths and hiding of selected columns.
  • A Refresh button lets you refresh the list to show the latest contents of the selected folder. Automatic refresh is not done because this program performs a deep scan of the file list to find sizes of folders. This operation is slow and should not be repeated too often.
  • New feature in version 2.0! Print the list to Browser so that you can then use browser features to further save to PDF and more.

More Features you get on Purchase (not available in Free Trial)

  • Double-click on any file or folder to open it in its associated App. For example, double-click on an Rtf file to open it in WordPad or Word depending on the file association. This feature needs some permission checks, especially on Windows 10s systems. Hence, we do not give this feature in the Free Trial.
  • Scan Network mapped drives and direct Network locations.
  • Symbolic-links (Deduplication folders) are detected and optionally can be skipped
    • Symbolic-links are also known as Deduplication folders or Junction points. Symbolic-links are detected and shown in the list in Blue color.
    • Symbolic-links point to other folders and give a false indication of disk space occupied. Get an option to skip them on a new Scan tab on the ribbon menu. When skipped, Symbolic-link items appear as striked out and in Blue color in the list.
  • Another list available--Folder Tree List
    • Lists only the Folders, making it more compact than File Tree list for the purpose of finding large folders when cleaning up disk space.
    • Two additional columns show total number of files and folders contained in each folder.
    • Sort on above columns to find out which folders contain the largest number of files or folders.
