JDiskReport – disk usage analyzer

JDiskReport enables users to understand how much space the files and directories consume on a disk drive, and it helps users to find large, old, and obsolete files and folders.

The tool therefore analyses your disk drives and collects several statistics which you can view as overview charts and details tables.

JDiskReport focuses on understanding what is going on with your disk space. There are other tools that help with cleaning hard disks.

Features include:

  • Scan a file tree.
  • Scan home directory.
  • Quickly analyse a drive or folder that has been recently analyzed.
  • Run JDiskReport from a command line.
  • Different perspectives about your disk drives: absolute and relative sizes, size distribution, distribution of modification dates, and distribution of types:
    • Size Perspective – quickly shows you how much space the files and folders consume on your disk drives.
    • Size Distribution – helps you to learn more about the different file sizes that exists on your disk drives.
    • Modified Distribution – provides you with information about when how much space and how many files have been modified.
    • Type Distribution – collected from the file extensions that exist on the analyzed file tree.
    • Top 50 Lists – a good place to find large and obsolete files.
  • Ring chart provides a good overview. Unlike the pie and bar chart it visualizes multiple folder levels at the same time. Each ring segment has a tooltip that indicates the related folder or file.
