DiskMap Plugin

Post by zarevak » 30 Jan 2009, 11:46

DiskMap is a plugin for Altap Salamander 2.52 beta 2 that visualizes disk space using a treemap. Each file is represented by one rectangle which area is proportional to the disk space occupied by the file. It should help you with finding large files and help you with recovering free space.

Usage:
- Open DiskMap for current directory from Plugin menu/Plugin bar (Ctrl+Shift+D). To display DiskMap for whole disk you have to be in the root directory.

Thanks for the plug-in. Works great! I have a couple of suggestion if you don't mind! :wink:

Can you have the diskmap window size to Salamander's current size?
Can you make the Esc key exit the plug-in (like most of the other plug-ins)?

Thanks,
Derek

DiskMap plugin for Altap Salamander 2.52 beta 1 was updated to use salrtl.dll instead of MSVCR80.dll. Opening above Salamander window and closing on ESC keypress was also implemented. Download from the first post.

Hey this looks awesome !
If you could implement a radial mode like in Overdisk ( http://users.forthnet.gr/pat/efotinis/p ... rdisk.html ), i'd love you long time ;).

DiskMap Plugin Bug

Post by thomas » 25 Aug 2009, 13:08

Hi,

I've found a heavy bug. If you close Altap Salamander 2.52 Beta 2 when DiskMap is still running, you get an error message. After closing this message Salamander crashes really heavy.

Best regards,

Hi everybody! The problem with DiskMap crashing on Salamander exit is being fixed and new version will be available tomorrow - either in new Salamander release or as a special download here on this forum.

I will also try to move all the strings to the language file so you can translate DiskMap ;)

It's a known fact that a lot of small files usually take longer time to list/read/write than a smaller amount of larger files. I would like to have the option to see numbers of files instead of sizes of files in the disk map. The best way to present such information would be using the colored boxes to represent directories instead of files (because we're not interested in the individual files), or (if it's easier to implement) just by reducing the size of each file to be the same.

Hi Ether,
this seems to be something fun and easy to implement ;-)

Just one question: how do you want to handle empty files (with 0 bytes)? Do you want to display them or hide them the same way they are hidden now?

(I will be using the "same size for all files" solution)

I guess empty files are as bad as 1-byte files, so don't hide them.
