We’ve all faced this issue where our computer system gave us a warning that our disk space is full. But sometimes, no matter what we delete, it doesn’t affect the space. However, now you can use the disk space fan freeware, which allows you to know which file is taking up more space in the system and delete that to free up space.

What is Disk Space Fan?

Disk Space Fan is a powerful disk space analysis tool for Windows. It helps you to free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting big, useless files. It displays disk space allocation with a nice chart. Filter is supported to find the size information of special file types, such as video, audio, or image. Further more, it finds and helps to delete duplicated files on your hard disk, and even leaves a shortcut to the actual file after duplicates are removed.

The next generation disk space analyzer

Scan your disk with the fastest speed, get what is taking your disk space immediately.

 Features Overview

Finding Big and Duplicate Files Easily

The Fastest Speed of Scan Disk

Thanks to the Master File Table(MFT) technology, Disk Space Fan can gain the fastest disk scan speed. MFT is also used by famous software – Everything

The next generation disk space analyzer

What is Ringschart in Disk Space Fan?

The Ringschart is composed of a set of nested rings around a central circle. This circle symbolizes the root folder. Each ring represents a level in the directory. Each subfolder or file is represented by a sector of the ring. Its angle being proportional to the size of the folder’s contents, and painted with a different color to ease visualization. Files will be painted in light gray color. Folder or file which is smaller than 1/180 of the size of root folder will be ignored.

The chart will display five levels. In the case that a folder in that last fifth level contains even more subfolders, this situation will be pointed by the presence of a curve close to the edge of that folder’s ring sector. When the mouse pointer hovers on one of the folders in the graphic, it will be highlighted and a tooltip will appear with information about its name and size.

Scan without Hash
