Installed & registered fine on Win XP Pro 32 bit, Win 7 64 bit Pro & Win Server 2012 R2 64 bit. Weird though however that it wouldn't register on either Win Vista 32 bit Business nor Win Vista 64 bit Ultimate, but still installed the trial! No biggie since I triple boot XP & the Vista OS's and can still scan all of them from XP. It wanted me to manually register both of the Vista versions by email, but that's such a hassle, so oh well. It's over in minutes anyway so whatever I guess. Thank you very much for what seems to be a great program. Found 8 GB of downloads I forgot about a long time ago on the Win 7 box, so that'sll give me some more room on the HD. So it's already a winner in my book.

I assume that, like normal, upgrades will 'break' the activation of this giveaway?
If so, users here will likely want to go into the settings and disable the automatic check for updates, which is enabled by default...

On an Internet-less PC, why does this program complain about the lack of TCP access on startup?

And of course, I too would vote for making a Portable version to be run from USB drives! Note that, while this could be a feature of only the free version (due to activation for paid version, a la Bvckup2's policy), it is also quite possible for paid programs to 'lock' activation to a particular flash drive or device.

My usual favorite speedy NTFS disk drive (local only) space analyzer, SCANNER.EXE by Steffen Gerlach, uses a "sunburst" type display which I really like and previously suggested incorporating (if possible) the last time this title was offered as DiskSavvy Pro 8.9 on August 29, 2016):

www.giveawayoftheday.com/disksavvy-pro-8-9/

However, DiskSavvy Pro has many options, features, and detailed report types that simple SCANNER does not have, including an error report of what it cannot access and analyze for the results. After reading it, I fired up SCANNER and it was not able to include those off-limits folders either -- I did not know that was happening!

I tried launching DiskSavvy Pro via "Run as administrator", but it did not seem to make a difference -- the folders remain off-limits (no fault of DiskSavvy Pro I suppose).

Thanks for today's title -- very nice indeed.

This program is not useful, it should be some type of file manager with analysis built in. What good is showing you what files and types? How about duplicate file searching or adding some file copying, moving, or deleting abilities.

I can't figure out the manual registration & the file its supposed to save to send to them is non existent on my computer? So what does one do? It won't register online?

Never mind but thank you if anyone wanted to let me know as I finally figured it out & found the manual registration. Thx GOTD

Reply   |   Comment by Tylicia  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Tylicia,

There is nothing to send to them. Simply install it (Setup.exe), then copy the registration key code (from within the other file, Readme.txt) and paste it into the empty registration box in Disk Savvy Pro (under menu item Help > About > Register).

It will then check in with their web site and get you registered.

They only supplied the key, not a name, so it appears you can use anything to fill in the name box (I simply used GiveawayOfTheDay which worked for me).

I don't recall if it was necessary (as is often required) to then exit and re-launch Disk Savvy Pro in order to see that the registration succeeded (check again, under About).

Hope this helps!

Really don't see the use of this type of software, besides the fact that almost every other utility has this function built in. Got 2 TB of music...I know where and how big it is...same with photos and anything else. Hard drives are cheap.
And same thing as usual...READ the readme file...
'can't install it' 'can't register it' 'doesn't work with XP'
good grief...

Hi everybody. :-)

W10Defender, MBAM3 free, SAS free, EEK free, virustotal didn't complain about disksavvy free, both x86 and x64 versions.
After I have downloaded them, the "view downloads" window of MSIE11 said: "The publisher of this program couldn't be verified.".
When I launch the installers, the UAC window says: "Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?".

How to improve the software?
Remove those warnings and make it portable.

I'm not sure about its usefulness, but who uses this kind of software have a good opinion about it (yes, I googled it).

(I uninstalled it)

This is an improvement on the free WinTreeStats program. DiskSavvy Pro offers more options and seems fast at analyzing drives.

Loaded on win 10 computer with no problems.
Quick run through seems good and has found my NAS and external hard drives as well of the main computer.
So far seem good.
PS GOTD logo on top of the page still has a santa hat. Is GOTD very late for Christmas 2017 or the first to start celebrating Christmas 2018?

Installed over existing giveaway from 2016.
Appears to be registered as the pro 10.4.18 without entering the key provided today.
Cant see where to enter the key anyway.
Just tells me what I already know. I have a lot of Videos, Photos and Music on my hard drive!

Installed on Win7 64 bit and registered with no issues. Upon 1st run of C drive, the program reported that I had less than 100MB of system memory and stopped. I changed the option to not check and exited 2 other programs. The software ran fine. It reports I have 167,000 directories, just under 1 million files and took 2 and 1/2 minutes on my 166.5 GB worth of space.

The filters seem to work fine. I did however find an issue which many programs (including some Microsoft ones) in that if I look at the PROPERTIES of a file, the box that opens is too small and cannot be expanded to a larger box. Clicking on the "?" seems to hang and I have to close the window to clear the problem.

Downloaded and installed on Windows 10 Home without a problem. I launched the application and tried to register it, using the built-in function. Put in user name and registration key, pressed enter and the system responded that the license server could not be reached. Is there a specific user name required? Has anyone else had this issue?

If you cannot register online, try to perform the manual product registration procedure.

RetiredGuy, I am getting the exact same message & I don't know about you but the manual registration isn't working for me? Did you figure it out?

Reply   |   Comment by Tylicia  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Tylicia,

I found that the problem was due to my firewall software blocking DiskSavvy from reaching the internet. Once that was corrected, the registration process worked correctly.

This app is the only way I have found to actually determine the size of individual share on a Netgear ReadyNAS. This alone is a huge asset, as there is no other way to tell when you have one share using up most of the drive space. Definitely recommended for NAS users.

For crying out loud! Everyday its the same, people posting worthless comments about the GOTD software but very few actually taking the time to try it out and then write a useful review instead of going on about freeware that is better and can do more.
Quick review: Using Windows 10 (64) the download, installation and registration were very quick and smooth. Once installed took it for a test drive and was pleased to see that it detected all my NAS drives. I have a couple of large NAS drives that for some reason I can access like any other drive on my machine but for some unknown reason the NAS drives won't report back to Windows how much space is available to them (I think it is a quirk of the drives) but this software produces a report on the status of these drives without any problems. There may well be freeware out there that does this and more but for me this worth keeping.

For those of you that are moaning about what a program can or can't do .... Nobody is forcing you use it, the idea is to let you try before you buy.

Robert, actually it's always useful to know about some free app which can perform better,same,different or even worse than daily offer! remember Giovanni? It's better to read (and later try) about some good and reliable free alternative than about number and size of your NAS drives or some reason and some unknown reason related to them.I (of course) don't have nothing against the good review of GOTD offer-which your certainly is not.

Reply   |   Comment by stuuf  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

I hope users continue to provide their insight into the GOTD offerings, in spite of vitriol against their input. Comments about the software is legitimately part of what many of us use to help decide whether we even want to try the offering. Additionally, users take the time to learn more about the developers, their history, the program's track, past user reviews and beyond. This is all valid and worthwhile, as not all developers are perfectly honest and forthcoming. Who wouldn't want to know about possible issues before installing a program onto their own system? GOTD users have saved my machine from potential disaster while steering me towards wonderful programs I may not have tried otherwise (which I now give great word-of-mouth recommendations for).

What a program can or cannot do is precisely one of the major bits of information many of us want to know. This commentary against such is just odd and unnecessarily contrary.

Disk Analyzer pro is better designed and the free version is enough for most user

Reply   |   Comment by alireza  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-7)

With the free version of Disk Analyzer you cannot analyze network shares, save reports and search files.

All these features are available in the free version of DiskSavvy.

This is an excellent program. The man behind Flexense posts (but rarely) on - http://www.donationcoder.com/ -.Try the free versions of his programs and maybe consider the paid versions -all of his programs seem rather good (I have 5 and they are all excellent).This class of software (disk space analysers) actually has lots of very good examples ;check out ,for example, - http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?sc=83&s=25 -.On a different topic now ,it is kind of ironic to see ,albeit only occasionally ,people posting to say they will not download any Russian software when it appears on GotD - if you don't understand the irony, well, you don't understand the irony. By the way, this software is not Russian ,but Israeli ,and anybody who refuses to download Israeli software would have to forego Nir Sofer's programs -which would be a less than optimal state of affairs.

TREESiZE by Jam Software [https://www.jam-software.com/treesize/], has been around for many many year and comes in 2 versions FREE or PROFESSiONAL

Free 4.1.1: (Released on 08 Dec 2017)
or
PROFESSiONAL v6.3.7 (Released on 12 Apr 2017) b is pretty good and been around a looooong time.

DiskSavvy is a good program, but their prices are even more expensive than Jam Software's program, and to be fair to all concerned, there are a number of companies offering such (or similar type) programs.

ocsid80, if they were identical then how could I tell?
defenition of identical is they are exactly the same and if they are visibly different they are not identical are they?

Differences between the paid editions are available at:

http://www.disksavvy.com/disksavvy_product_versions.html

odd that they do not include the free edition in that table...

ocsid80, Actually most editions of most programs use the same GUI engines otherwise there would be no continuity of support and different learning curves for each edition... so what's your point? They still took the screenshot for a pro edition giveaway off an ultimate edition license, and since when is ultimate not the best? there are two other editions less restricted than ultimate! Like why is there a Server edition when system requirements for this Pro edition clearly incudes support for server editions from 2003 to 2016... just feature limits differentiate them and the TRUE ultimate as in the best they have to offer is not their ultimate edition but the Enterprise edition which has all the artificialy placed restrictions removed!

Judging by last version offered here: a pretty useful tool producing thorough results.Yet there are several free tools covering part of the functionalities. I happily use the good old WinDirStat.
