DiskView Folders Pane
The DiskView Folders pane adds other dimensions to Explorer's Folders pane - in addition to showing the relative folder-sizes, the DiskView Folders Pane allows sorting the folder tree-view by size as well as by name. Also, the bars representing the relative size can depict the size as a percentage of the disk space, or of the parent folders size.
The integrated toolbar in the DiskView Folders pane offers functions to choose the sort order, visualization mode and provides useful tools
Sort Order selection
The sort order selection tools modify the sorting to be applied to members of the folder tree-view. When the sort order is set to 'Sort by Folder Size', the folder nodes are arranged in descending order of size as shown in the screenshot above.
When the alphabetical sort order is chosen, the nodes are sorted by name.
Visualization Mode selection
The visualization mode selection tools specify whether the relative size shown indicates the percentage of the folders size with respect to the occupied space on the current drive, or as a percentage of the parent folder's size.
