WizTree 4.00 (10 June 2021)
- Multiple drives and folders may now be selected and scanned at once (use the "Select multiple" option in the drop down, or press Alt+F3 to select drives and folders)
- When selecting multiple drives or folders, you can add custom folders to the list by clicking on the "add folder" button. These new user defined folders will also appear in the main drop down selection box for quick access.
- The file search has been updated to work the way WizFile does. These new search filter options can also be used as filters when calling WizTree from the command line.
Use operators "=", ">", ">=", "<", "<=" to filter files based on size or modified date. NB: Don't put any spaces between operators and values!
e.g. to find files less than 100 bytes in size:
Append a 'k', 'm', 'g', or 't' to the number to search in Kb, Mb, Gb, Tb
e.g. to find files between 500MB and 1Gb:
'kb', 'mb', 'gb', 'tb' can also be used, e.g.:
To filter by "allocated" size, use "a=", "a>", etc.
e.g. To find files with allocated size between 100MB and 200MB:
e.g. to find files with 0 allocated size and greater than zero file size:
To filter by date, specify a date in the format: yyyy/mm/dd
e.g. Filter files modified before 2020/01/01:
Use the constant "today" to reference today's date. Optionally add or subtract a number of days from this constant.
e.g. to find files modified in the last 7 days:
e.g. to find all files larger than 1gb that were modified in the last month (last 30 days):
Place the search item in quotes to force a file name search.
e.g. to find file names that contain "=0" instead of displaying files with zero size:
- File search speed has been increased
- Matching text will now be highlighted in the file search results
- The wiztree web site has moved to from "wiztreefree.com" to "diskanalyzer.com"
- Licensing has changed. Commercial users will now purchase licenses based on their business size. These licenses will be valid for all versions of WizTree released within one year of purchase. For example, if a user purchases a license on 1 July 2021, it will work with all versions of WizTree that are released before 1 July 2022 (one year from 1 July 2021).
WizTree 3.41 (5 May 2021)
- Fixed bug introduced in 3.40 that could prevent mapped network drives from being scanned correctly
- Fixed bug where cluster size may have been incorrect leading to incorrect "allocated size" calculations
- Fixed bug where right clicking on drive letter would not display context menu
- Fixed inconsistency with how "percent of parent" was calculated when displaying individual files that had been grouped together within a folder ("x files in folder"). The percentage displayed is now the percentage size of the individual file within the group.
WizTree 3.40 (4 May 2021)
- Incorrect allocated space value was being displayed for cloud based files (like OneDrive) - fixed
- Search filter text and number of files drop down on "files" view invisible on some older versions of Windows - fixed
- updated EULA
WizTree 3.39 (15 April 2021)
- Launching WizTree with a command line parameter path containing a trailing backslash would cause scanning problems (bug introduced in 3.38, fixed)
- Chinese (Simplified) translation updated
Note that many of the WizTree translations are out of date as the original translators are no longer available. If you find that the translation for your language is not correct and you'd like to update it please contact us for details.
WizTree 3.38 (14 April 2021)
- Clicking on a file in the tree map would sometimes not bring it into view correctly (fixed)
- Ctrl clicking on files in the tree map now allow selections to be toggled on and off (could not unselect by ctrl clicking a file in the treemap previously)
- Support for very long file names (>260 characters in total)
- Scanning of network drives would fail in some cases (e.g. on Parallels desktop for Mac) - fixed
- Minor cosmetic changes. Label color issue on Windows XP fixed.
- Updated Turkish translation (thanks to Ferhat MURAT)
Note that many of the WizTree translations are out of date as the original translators are no longer available. If you find that the translation for your language is not correct and you'd like to update it please contact us.
WizTree 3.37 (23 February 2021)
- Tweaked tree map display drawing. Will now only display drawing progress when dealing with more than 1,000,000 files as it's quicker to not display anything.
- Drive selection box would not work correctly if "display drive letters" option in Windows File Explorer was turned off (fixed)
- Digital signature verification method changed as previous Windows API method (WinVerifyTrust) would trigger unwanted Internet access if required digital certificates were not already installed on the PC
WizTree 3.36 (16 February 2021)
- support for Windows 10 "dark mode". Theme can be changed via Options->Colors->UI Theme
- Rescanning the same drive or folder (by clicking Scan or pressing F5) will now preserve the current state of the tree and file views so folders and files that were visible or selected before the rescan will remain visible and selected if they still exist after the rescan. This makes "refreshing" the view much easier than before.
- WizTree may have incorrectly decoded some MFT records on very large hard drives which could lead to extremely large allocated size information being displayed for some files (fixed)
- .mft and .csv files created by WizTree can now be dragged into WizTree to be processed. Note that due to the way Windows implements security, you won't be able to drag files from Windows explorer into WizTree if Windows explorer is running non elevated (non admin rights) and WizTree is running elevated (admin rights). You either have to start up Windows explorer in admin mode, or start WizTree in non admin mode (disable "always run as administartor") for this to work.
- Allocated size for files compressed using NTFS LZX compression would appear as 0 when scanning folders (fixed)
- File search filtering sped up significantly
- support for very high DPI (200%+ scaling)
- When dealing with extremely large numbers of files WizTree will display a progress bar after scanning when loading tree data and/or drawing the tree map. We recommend turning the tree map off (toggle with F9) when dealing with very large numbers of files as it can take some time to draw a tree map for millions of files.
- minor UI changes
- Dutch translation updated (thanks to Jan Verheijen)
WizTree 3.35 (31 August 2020)
- Fixed bug introduced in 3.34 that might cause WizTree to hang when scanning certain hard drives
- Fixed integer overflow issue that would cause problems when dumping extremely large MFT files
- Multi selection on file view did not unselect when Ctrl+Clicking selected item (fixed)
- debug logging is now possible by using the new command line parameter "/debug=1". This will create log files in the %appdata%\WizTree3\DebugLogs folder. Send these to us if you have any problems.
WizTree 3.34 (29 August 2020)
- When sorting by allocated size, the percentage of parent calculation will now use allocated size values
- Improved MFT file scanning method. Should greatly improve scanning speed on drives with very large MFT files.
- Menu items using non English alphabet will no longer have auto generated shortcuts added to them
- some minor UI tweaks (file groups now line up properly, percentage display slightly wider, progress bar lagging fixed)
- WizTree can now be configured to display the maximum "last modified date" for all files and folders within a folder instead of the standard Windows last modified date.
To do this edit the WizTree3.ini file and change the following setting:
Default setting is off (0). WizTree3.ini is located in %appdata%\WizTree3\WizTree3.ini (for installed version) or in the same folder as the WizTree exe file for the portable version.
- Updated translations for Russian (thanks to Dmitry Yerokhin), Japanese (thanks to maboroshin), Korean (thanks to Kim YoungCheon)
WizTree 3.33 (14 May 2020)
- Network and substituted drives that may not have been visible to WizTree when running as administrator will now be selectable. This is a work around for a Windows bug/feature that does not allow elevated applications to access network and substituted drives that were created by a non elevated process. See: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee844140(v=ws.10).aspx
In such a case WizTree will display the contents of the network drive using the UNC name (e.g. \\servername\sharename) instead of the mapped drive letter. Similarly substituted drives will display the contents of the local folder the drive is mapped to instead of the mapped drive letter.
- Added option to display values in TB. Values larger than 1024GB will be displayed in TB in dynamic value display mode.
- /filterexclude would not work unless a /filter was specified (fixed)
- Folder names will now be matched against the filter specification using a trailing backslash
(setting a /filterexclude to "C:\windows\" would export the "C:\windows\" folder record incorrectly as it would filter using "C:\windows" instead of "c:\windows\")
- Files without an extension can now be filtered for by using "*." filter. This did not work previously as the period was not included in the filename used to match against the filter.
- Importing a CSV file that was exported with folders only ( "/exportfiles=0") will now display total file and folder info correctly
- Importing a CSV file that did not contain complete folder information could cause file names to become corrupted. This would prevent context menu from working correctly.
- Importing a CSV file from a network share (e.g. \\servername\sharename) would drop the leading "\\" when importing (fixed)
- row height can be set in the WizTree3.ini file ("rowheight=xx"). Default is 19. Useful if you've increased the fontheight setting in this file.
- when sorting by allocated size, the percentage of parent calculation will now use allocated size values
