Microsoft continues to improve the capabilities of the Windows 10 operating system. DiskUsage tool, which is added to the operating system, will allow you to find the folders that take the most space on the disk in a practical way.
Software giant Microsoft is working on a useful disk analysis feature for Windows 10 PCs. The new command line tool called DiskUsage will allow users to easily find the folders that take up the most space on their computers.
Currently the tool is only available in Windows 10 preview versions. It will show the size of the folders on the hard disk, helping you identify which folders are taking up the computer’s memory.
There are different ways of use
With the DiskUsage command, you will be able to practically see which folders are taking up space by analyzing a specific drive, partition or directory. Not all of them are limited to this.
The tool also allows you to apply filters based on file type. For example, you will be able to run the command “diskusage / minFileSize = 1073741824 / h c: \ windows” to quickly list folders larger than 1 GB.
For now, this tool seems to be accessible via the command line only. We hope that we will be able to use this disk analysis feature added to Windows 10 via the Settings application.
