Viewing Top 100 Files by File Size
Normally, DiskSavvy displays an hierarchy of analyzed directories and files sorted by the used disk space and allows one to browse subdirectories in order to identify which subdirectories and files are using significant amounts of the disk space. In addition, DiskSavvy provides the ability to display a flat list of top 100 files sorted by the file size.
In order to display the list of top 100 files, analyze one or more disks, directories or network shares, press the 'Top 100' button located on the main toolbar and select the 'View Top Files' menu item. For each file, the list of top 100 files shows the full file name, the host name and the file size.
By default, DiskSavvy shows all types of files in the currently displayed location. In addition, the user is provided with the ability to show top 100 files for specific types of files or file categories. For example, in order to display top 100 programs and executable files in the Windows system directory, analyze the system hard disk, navigate to the Windows system directory, double click on the 'Programs and Executable Files' file filter in the filters view and then select the 'View Top 100 Files' menu item.
Finally, DiskSavvy provides the ability to export the list of top 100 files to a text report file. In order to export the list of top 100 files, press the 'Export' button located on the top 100 files dialog, enter a file name to export the report to and press the 'Save' button.
