Brief product description

SpaceSniffer is a *freeWare* (donations are welcome) and *portable* tool
application that lets you understand how folders and files are
structured on your disks. By using a Treemap
<http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/treemap-history/>; visualization layout, you
have immediate perception of where big folders and files are placed on
your devices. Treemap <http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/treemap-history/>;
concept was invented by Prof. Ben Shneiderman
<http://www.cs.umd.edu/%7Eben/>;, who kindly permitted the use of his
concept into this tool.

Start a scan process and see the overall situation. Bigger are the
elements on the view, bigger are folders and files on your disk. You
need more detail on a big folder? Just *single click on it*. The
selected element will be detailed with its content.

Need more and more detail? Keep selecting elements and they'll discover
their secrets to you. Need a larger view of a small folder? Then *double
click on it*, and it'll zoom to the full extent of the view.

If you need to understand why no more free space is left on media, keep
following bigger elements. Maybe you want to focus only on particular
file types... ok. Just *type the file type* on the filter field
(example: |*.jpg|) and press enter. The view will react and show you
only JPEG files.
Want to exclude files? Then type a starting pipe before the filter
(example: ||*.jpg|) and press enter. The view will show everything but
JPEG files.

If you want to keep track of examined files *you can tag them*. Four
colors are available. Just hover the mouse on a file and press |CTRL+1|
to tag it red. There are keys also for yellow, green and blue tagging.
Use them as you wish. You can also filter on tags (example: |:red| will
show only red tagges files, |:all| will show all tagged files and so
on). You can also exclude tagged files (example: ||:red| will exclude
all red tagged files)

Want to know if you have old files? Type the condition in the filter
field (example: |>2years|) and the view will react accordingly.

You can also filter on *file size*, *file date* and combine all filters
(example: |*.jpg;>1mb;<3months;|:yellow|)

Once you have your result, you can produce a textual report by using the
embedded *Export Module*. You can even customize the report layout to
match your needs.
