Used-DiskSpace by vanSoest.it
Current versionUsed-DiskSpace latest version is 22.214.171.124 and a .Net 4.x release can also be downloaded.
Main feature overviewUsed-DiskSpace is a program to display the disk space statistics of the fixed disk(s) of a computer and can be run on the command prompt, in a batch or logon script without administrative rights. When the output is stored as an unicode file on a file server (see examples), command line commands can be used to prepare the data for analysis in Excel.
Data gathered for every fixed disk in a computer is:
Used-DiskSpace version 126.96.36.199 is free.
HistoryThe first version of Used-DiskSpace was designed to quickly but very clearly report the disk status of PC's and notebooks in a corporate worldwide network. This program can be used on the command prompt or in a logon script. When the data is redirected to a file and written on a central network share, the data can be easily accessed. Some filtering is possible using the command line program FindStr
Used-DiskSpace 188.8.131.52 is now optimised for data analysis in for example Microsoft Excel as it can now write an optimised unicode data file on a file share.
FeaturesThe program Used-DiskSpace is very easy to use, but very flexible. The small program runs quickly and the resulting data can be redirected to a file on the local disk or writeable network share on a file server. These files containing the disk statistics can be filtered with standard command line tools, such as FindStr, and resulting data can be analysed in Excel using standard filtering and conditional formatting. This enables the lean program Used-DiskSpace to run quickly from network shares in login scripts over the (WAN) network connections whilst providing easy access to central stored data.

Using Used-DiskSpace with the file save optionWhen running Used-DiskSpace with the /File or /F option, a file name must be provided to store the unicode data. The file name may contain a path using either a mapped drive ("G:\PublicFiles") or an UNC path (\\nlaalfs1\PublicFiles).
When multiple files are stored on a network share, these may be combined in one file using the tool Merge1File. The resulting file can easily be analysed in Excel.
