Simple Disk Analyzer really honors its name because it´s maybe the most easy-to-use, single-task application ever. Most of its simplicity comes from the fact that this application can only do one task: analyze disks and folder to inform you how the space is used by subfolders and files.
Only three buttons are available at its main window: "Browse" to select the disk or folder you want to analyze, "Analyze" to put the application to work and "About" to get some information about the software.
Once the analysis is done the program will show you a report in the same window. The report uses a tree structure listing all files and subfolders, and one horizontal bar indicating the percentage of space used by them.
A downside of this application is that it won’t allow stopping the analysis once is triggered. Just assume you picked the wrong location to analyze and want to stop the process to pick the correct one. Well, you will have to wait until it finishes and start it all over again later.
- It's available for free
- It's extremely simple to use
- It has a lightweight installation file
