Software Update: WizTree 4.11

Spread the love

WizTree is a program that can analyze a hard disk at lightning speed to find files and folders that take up the most space. It is therefore a great tool to clean up the hard disk when there is a lack of space. The program can also search for certain file types and export the result of a scan. WizTree is free to use in private environments and can also do its job without installing it first. Below is the changelog for version 4.11:

Changes in WizTree version 4.11:

  • “Today” file search filter (=today) was not working correctly in some time zones – fixed
  • Command line parameters for /filter and /filterexclude now support literal double quotes. This is useful when filtering paths containing spaces, to prevent the filter from treating the space as an “AND” operator.
    Use a single quote character to represent the double quote, like this:
    WizTree64.exe /filter=”‘C:\Program Files\’|’C:\Program Files (x86)\'”
    The example above would set the “include filter” to
    “C:\Program Files\”|”C:\Program Files (x86)\”
    The filter above will match file names containing “C:\Program Files\” OR “C:\Program Files (x86)\”
    Two single quotes in a row will be treated as one literal single quote:
    WizTree64.exe /filter=”‘C:\Program Files\’|’C:\Program Files (x86)\’|’C:\Bob’s Folder\'”
    This would set the “include filter” to
    “C:\Program Files\”|”C:\Program Files (x86)”|”C:\Bob’s Folder\”
    Without the quotes the filtering will not work as expected:
    C:\Program Files\|C:\Program Files (x86)\
    This would match any file names containing “C:\Program” AND ( “Files\” OR “C:\Program” ) AND “Files” AND “(x86)\”
    Previously the way to work around this problem was to replace the spaces with wildcard question marks, like this:
    WizTree64.exe /filter=”C:\Program?Files\|C:\Program?Files?(x86)\”
  • WizTree 4.09/4.10 would crash when run as “SYSTEM” user (“NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM”) due to some issues with the newly added drag/drop functionality – fixed
  • Fixed some cosmetic issues with Italian translation
