Since my production machine is not connected to the internet I tried a manual Registration.

Sent my .flx file to register@disksorter.com with a subject of 'Register Disk Sorter Pro'

Never got a reply. A nice piece of software that once again I can't reigster because the process is complex enough for the suppliers to fail.

Dissapointed delete.

Ok. I found the reply in my junk mail. Not their fault. Saved it to mu hard disk and went throuigh registration to get:

Unable to register Disk Sorter Pro (ERR:2648). Make sure you asre using a valid unlock file and have administrative permissions to perform the operation.

I tried running as administrator, same error. Guess I go back to my first comment.

These days far too many appications "have" to access the internet when the sole purpose is for the producer's benefit. They basically shoot themselves in the foot IMHO.

doesn't register. Can't connect to the server ?? No more time to waste...delete.

ML,
Please try to disable your firewall just for a very short moment while registering the software.
In my case it worked.
I did not like it, but it was the only way I could overcome this problem.
Just make sure to enable the firewall ASAP after the successful registration, and block the program from internet access afterwards.

Cheers,

consuella

Looking through this it is a lot like TreeSize Pro which I have used for a long time now. I think many will find it useful. However limiting the space to 10TB seems rather limiting. You could always use the free version of TreeSize and it will deal with network drives if they are mapped. Otherwise you need the Pro version but it has no space limitations making it a better fit for me. Thanks anyway for an interesting giveaway today.

Ignore my last comment, please. I just realized the zip file has both 32 and 64 bit versions. Thanks so much! This looks like a really beneficial program.

Is this the 64 or 32 bit version? I noticed on their site there are both versions, so which one is this one?

Reply   |   Comment by Sylvia  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Sylvia, seems to be the 32

Sylvia, actually, it apparently determines what version you are downloading it to

For each of the eight shared directories on my Synology DS413 NAS, Disk Sorter Pro reported the directory size as equal to the total size of the entire NAS disk array and the directed used space as equal to the used space of the entire NAS disk array. https://app.box.com/v/DiskSorterProNAS

If you are primarily interested in where your disk is being consumed, another (free) approach that I use regularly is WinDirStat, which uses a great visualization called a pillow treemap to let you easily see the groupings and relative usages of the directories on a given disk. IMHO, once you've used WinDirStat, you won't be looking elsewhere for this task.

Reply   |   Comment by Bryan  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Bryan,

WinDirStat is slow. There are many other programs which are faster and that can produce more reports than WinDirStat

My C drive is my system drive and I attempt to keep it clear of any clutter, this helps when I'm backing up the system drive.

If you examine what is happening on that drive you will see it changes in the available free space a great deal.

Often wondered what was going on there and today's program allows me to see what is being modified and what been created.
I have found it very hard to do in the past it today's download has made it very easy.

I am utterly amazed at the user rating, 60/40 at the moment; suppose the 40% are not interested in how their system operates, but is that a valid reason to mark it down, NO in my opinion unless you are willing to back it up with a comment.

Reply   |   Comment by Seb  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Would just like to point out that my obvious admiration for the program is not misconstrued as my having any financial interest in the development.
To be honest I just love it! :-)

Rather than mark me down, if you can write please do me the courtesy of commenting.
Because of the different aspects to my comments marking me down is rather meaningless.

Seb,

windirstat (freeware) does a good job of showing you where/how your drive space is used.

Seb, i appreciate your obvious enthusiasm for this product. there are people who give negative feedback when i think it is totally unwarranted. i have noticed this a lot more in this last year or so. i will take time to write out what i think is a helpful review and i get negatives. i notice this with others too. it is beyond me. so, please understand that your enthusiasm convinced me that i should download this product, thank you.

"Disk Sorter Pro limits the amount of disk space to 10.00 TB. You can upgrade for $50 only. Would you like to upgrade?"

This program is no good for my personal NAS.

DL'd and reg with no problems. It's fast and very efficient, and a very good offering by GOTD, which I thank you guys for! I highly reccomend that users be EXTREMELY careful about what you move or delete as this can be as dangerous as regedit for the uninitiated! I think a good improvement would be a 'back' button in the analyze window, as after going into a file to actually see what's what, one has to repeat the process to look at other files under the same analysis. Definitely a keeper that goes nicely next to my process explorer!

I correct myself, as I missed the 'up' button. I need caffeine, it's early.

In there screen shot above, they list 23.52 GB of unknown files (almost 1/3 of the whole disk), isn't the whole purpose of this software to find out what those files are?

Reply   |   Comment by Fred  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Fred, that's where the 'Analyze' function works.

Reply   |   Comment by Mike OD  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

Fred,
Certain file extensions such as EXE, DLL are only associated with generally a single file type.

Many other extensions are associated with a large number of file types and this is probably what comes under unknown.

To find out more put file extensions in Google and links to what different file types do will be available.

Pow Wow!
At first I really wondered whether *tidy me* would need such a programme.
Well, I do.
With the internal drives things seem under reasonably good control.
But them external drives/NAS need to be sorted out and brought back to the original scheme of triple backups. A few (too many!) TB of redundancies got accumulated. Shame on me, indeed, but thumbs up for the developer and heartful thanks to GiveawayoftheDay for introducing Flexense to all of us here.
To go into details what types of sorting categories this software can handle, sorry, just ran the default type and was immediately very much impressed. Rock solid during categorizing, html-type overview report generated and saved in documents library. For software in that price category absolutely superb.
The online presentation of Flexense is pretty much representative of what kind of company and software you are dealing with

Sober, tidy and uncluttered, in some way a best of.. good old D-land.
Thanks for the chance. Super, as we call it nowadays.

Sigrid.DE, You can sort (under any operating system) by SIZE, NAME, DATE and or sort and find files under any extension in any drive, very fast and accurate. Also you can try free explorers like Q-dir and hundreds of them and you can drill down to any level of sub-folder and find files with one byte in them if you want, this software can not do that.

Reply   |   Comment by Fred  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Fred,
dream on!
Q-dir does not even search in Linux(Unix)-based NAS drives
As none of my drives exceed 10 TB yet, I can fully utilise the categorising offered by DiskSorter.
I kind of think that this tool was never intended for use by folks who need no more than extension, size and date search tools. Categorising what is on a disk altogether is something else.
For the home user also a help to tidy up if necessary but basically there is way more to such tools.
Speed and reliability in searching, presentation of results, direct access to files and folders also play a role.

Q-Dir has no trouble searching my Linux-based Synology NAS drives.

Installed and activated easily on Win 7 64U. I viewed the video tutorial on the Web site which seemed to be narrated by a robot, but which clarified the program's use. Once up to speed, I ran the program which classified this 1 TB disc in an eyeblink. I was amazed at how much pointless stuff I'd been storing and backing up on this disc. Did a quick clean up of all of the detritus.

Not sure how necessary this utility is for regular use, but it sure does have a nicely designed UI and its speed is astonishing.

Bit the bullet and decided to analyse my main drives; the drive I laughingly call my programs drive turned out to have more video then programss by a huge amount, using analyse I was able to find out where they resided.
This was a surprise as I had forgotten just how much video there was on that drive.
But the program did help me to find this problem and produced information that made it easy to rectify.

My only criticism of this program so far is the database button being left on the toolbar, as when you click it informes you that you need to upgrade to use it. A shame it is there in my opinion and think they should find a better way of advertising the upgrade.

Now I suppose I'd better start moving those video files to where they should be.

This program is full of pleasant surprises, as I was able to move the directories from inside this program.
When you go to analyse there is the option to manipulate the directories, and possibly files but I haven't tried files yet.

I tested this on my "general" drive which contains documents music steam games etc., and 57% of the files were unknown, the rest were basically obvious already to me as I keep music in one folder, pictures in another, so fairly well organised.
This software may be of use to somebody who did not have a reasonably organised PC, but 57% is for me a very high percentage of folders unrecognised, (over half the drive).
I will keep it for a while and play with it, but I doubt I would move on to an upgrade.
Thanks to all.

Before I installed visited their webpage, a well thought out site that contained a beautifully produced 80 page PDF help file.

On opening the program itself a nice clean and easy to use interface.

Decided to test it on an 8 GB flash drive and it very rapidly had categorised around 20,000 files.
The layout shows the category, number of files, space that category takes, and a bar indicating the amount of space used.
Double-clicking on the category drills down through the information.

Goodness me, what a lot of rubbish I have on that drive and I have a feeling it will be the same on many of the drives.

Everything about this product shows how much the developers care about the quality; ease of installation, clean and pleasing on the eye interface and speed of operation.

An excellent help file is available on this page:-
http://www.disksorter.com/disksorter_overview.html

It's a long time since I found myself admiring a piece of software so much, a delight to behold.
Will be keeping it, with some dread, when it reveals just what a little squirrel I am in the way I horde files and junk on my system.

Installed and registered with no problems. Nice easy program to use, can think of lots of uses for this. Only downside is I couldn't get it to detect the two NAS drives I have. After entering IP addresses search fails to detect them. Not sure if this a GOTD restriction or if fault with software. However, as I only use NAS drives for backups this doesn't put me off using the program.
