Disk Sorter can help you know exactly what is on the disks of not only your local computer, but network servers as well. This software scans various locations and classifies their contents according to different criteria. Thus, it allows you to classify files in given directories, all local disks and servers, and NAS services. What is more, you can even use it to classify the files stored in all servers of a network.
The program uses plug-ins for different classification criteria. These comprise basic properties such as extension and file type, as well as complex ones, as creation time, media types and users. Additionally, the conditions expressed by the plug-ins can be further expanded by means of rules. Once the program has scanned the selected locations, it generates reports of disk usage, which can be saved as simple text files or complex databases.
The analysis of the reports can help you take decisions based on how much disk space is used by a given file type or network user. The reports can also help you find a certain file more quickly. The resulting files or folders can be selected and moved to another location. Furthermore, you can also select files and compress them, which is particularly useful when you need to make frequent backups of a given set of data.
Despite the apparent difficulty when dealing with large amount of files, Disk Sorter can help you manage them with no difficulty. The program is so easy that it can be probably used by someone with little experience. However, it will be most useful for advanced users, mostly network administrators.
