SpaceSniffer Review

Sven Sorensen
Portable application which display how large files and folders are
A review of SpaceSniffer by Sven Sørensen

SpaceSniffer is an extensive and feature-rich application which displays the amount of space being used up on your hard drive(s) by displaying the information as graphics and text.

After your system has been scanned, SpaceSniffer will display information about used disk space as colored squares. Once you click a specific square, it will expand to display more details about the space being used.

The program shows directories in blue while green squares represent free space available for applications and data. Of course, you may also customize the graphics to your own color scheme.

A really cool thing about SpaceSniffer is its real-time display of data being accessed. Excellent for knowing exactly what is being used at any given point.

Filtering results is also easy as SpaceSniffer fully supports searching with wildcards; you can also find files of a certain size or larger.
