Display Hard Disk Usage in Chart Form

Post by puppettestpilot » Tue Mar 24, 2020 6:52 am

Hello,

I would like a feature/app that would allow me to visually see a graphical representation of file and folder sizes in chart/graph form, that I can interrogate down to all levels of the file system, to find/see what files and folders are using the the most volume space.

Similar to 'Scanner' for Windows:

Similar to 'Disk Expert' for Mac:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcfGzEJ_9hc - 1 minute video

If there is already a QNAP app like this available, please let me know.


Thank you

Nic

Hi dolbyman,
Thanks for your reply, and for advising that QNAP doesn't come here - that's intriguing.
I have actually tried Scanner with my NAS but my 35TB is too much for it to handle, it just doesn't finish scanning.
As for Disk Expert, well I don't have a Mac, so I can't test it.
My fingers remain crossed, and I'm struggling to pick up anything, hehe.
Cheers

**Correction, it did eventually finish scanning but it didn't show any results - see attached
(It was two eternities ago when I first tried it)

FYI - I've now found that TreeSize Pro works - Yay
