In order to show you disk space usage, Disk Analyzer Pro must perform a disk search on the drive where you wish to see disk consumption. To perform a disk search, choose the drive you want to scan and click on “Start Scan” button. Once it performs the complete search, you will be able to view various disk space reports which are grouped by different file criteria such as file types, file size, ownership, file date/time etc. as you can see in the screenshot below.

File Viewer is a common file explorer tool. It opens up whenever you double-click on any of the disk space report. For example, if you double-click on “Big Size Files” report from Custom Types Report summary then the file viewer will open up. If you double-click on any of the file type from File Types report then the file viewer opens up and like wise. The file viewer gives you the ability to preview files, move, copy, rename, delete or even compress the files.

 

It is also possible for you to filter the file list using file types, file path, date, attributes and other such criteria. Filtering the list is useful when you have a really big files list (say 100 thousand files). You can also sort the file list by file size, date or any of the column and then see top 100 or top “n” files. This gives you a quick access to space consuming files.
