Using Treesize Personal to find Heavy Files

I, like many photographers, like to hoard my images.  Seriously, we could probably have a reality TV show for photographers like me.  That would be funny a guy shows up at my office, looks through my drives and says,

“Dude, you really kept this file?  What are you going to do with a blurry photo… it is not only blurry, but is a blurry 9 bracket series… this crap has to go”

The truth is,  it can be difficult to manage the chaos of our images.  The more megapixels you are rockin’ the faster space is consumed.  I use a program called Treesize to scan all my drives and assess where all of my heavy files are.

Whether you use the charts and graphs or the detailed extensions tab, Treesize will show you exactly where your heavy files rest on your machine.

I use Treesize’s assessment to show me what folders have the most images and analyze what I can do to cull it down to free up space.  I don’t go on a deleting rampage, but I do use the data to determine what I want to do with the files.

Treesize is for PC users only, but there is a similar item for Mac users called Daisy Disk.  Check out today’s not so photography tutorial to see how this data may help you and save you some big money!
