This program reports the current state of your disks: Total MegaBytes, GigaBytes, the amount of space used and free, and the useable swap space (or memory usage). Furthermore, one can browse through the folder structure with an intuitive pie chart showing relative folder space used.
DiskState can also eliminate space wasted after program crashes or by temporary files no longer needed.
The Duplicate Finder of DiskState uses e.g. a powerful 128-bit MD5 technology to track down redundant files. Even if the file names are different, DiskState identifies duplicates by content and displays duplicates in a comprehensive list.
Got a lot of MP3s, image files and other multimedia duplicates? Then DiskState can help you with an easy-to-use wizard to remove those hogging duplicate multimedia files!
Next, DiskState can capture the state of all files recursively in a folder tree. This enables the user to compare old states with newly captured ones. Ideally for detecting changes in files, deleted and added files in a given folder structure.
Reports can be generated to find e.g. the oldest files, zip files etc. on a disk volume. The whole report generator is user-customizable. Adding new reports is simple.
DiskState provides a deletion engine for scheduling cleanups regularly.
A cool tool for extracting boot blocks with multiboot system. This is useful if e.g. Windows Me installer or Windows 2000 boot menu has erased your Linux Lilo boot block. Add e.g. Linux, BeOS, OS/2 and over 200 known boot blocks to your Windows NT or 2000 boot menu.
DiskState has various cleanup tools. One example is the "Cover Your Tracks" to remove traces you leave after surfing the web. The includes a nifty Cookie Manager: Remove cookies selectively using sub-string matches, all-at-once or by manual selections.
