The majority of the improvements are related to the print functionality where an advanced Print Preview option is implemented. The flexible new Print Preview dialog will not only let you preview the printed document, but also set margins and page settings, remove pages from print job, rearrange print order and more. There are also several options in the new print dialog that will let you save the print job to a PDF, multi-page TIFF, PPV or EMF file.
There is also a new export functionality that will let you export the content of the details view to a CSV format. A tool button near the report type selection is added for this purpose.
The standard complete export functionality in the File menu is preserved and extended with the Owner details. Exporting owner details is disabled by default in order to preserve the performance of the tool. If you need this information included your can enable it in File->Options->Export: “Export owner information”.
The installer now includes an option whether to create or not the ‘Scan with Folder Size’ context menu.
Folder Size 188.8.131.52 adds two new reports to the already available information. The largest files and largest folders report will list the information analyzing all the sub-folders of the selected folder. This means that if you select the root of your drive Folder Size will instantly list the largest files and largest folders that are stored in it regardless of their location.
You can now also see the total size of the selected items in the status bar. If there are no items selected the size of all the items listed in the details view will be displayed.
The filter option now allows multiple masks separated by semicolons. You can now search for example all the BMP and JPG files at the same time by setting the filter “*.jpg;*.bmp”
The professional version of the application can now scan multiple items via the command line and using Drag & Drop. You can scan multiple folders using the -scan command line option. The list of folders is delimited with semicolon. E.g. -scan C:\Folder1;”C:\Folders With Spaces”
The scan of multiple folder via Drag & Drop is also a very handy feature. For example you can use Windows Explorer search in order to find all the folders named “TEMP” then drag the listed results inside Folder Size in order to analyze them.
The free file size analyzer – Folder Size 184.108.40.206 is released with a fix for a major issue that caused a preliminary scan termination and incomplete scan results under Windows 7. We have not received reports for other operating system, but we recommend you to download this update.
Along with the fix for the above bug the user interface now uses the “Tahoma” font which looks much better and supports also the ClearType technology.
Folder Size 220.127.116.11 provides plenty of new feature. The new Windows Explorer context menu “Scan with Folder Size”, the Drag And Drop support and the command line option: -scan “folder path” make it much easier to scan folders. The multiple selection will let you easier get rid of the unnecessary files and free up disk space. The new version of Folder Size is also extremely optimized. It scans two times faster and lists files on slower machines more than ten times faster.
