Dirsize very large files

Post by adquist »

Hi,

We are using dirsize on a file server with large directory trees.
Everything works fine, except for one directory subtree which contaings very large files (each file is more than 1GB).
This entire subtree is skipped by dirsize.

Is this a bug or a feature ?

Hi there,

Are you using the default settings? Can you please post the command line you are using?

This is the commandline that we are using :
dirsize d:\ -2 -sort=name -dir -comma -nowaste -nosubs -nofiles

This is not a bug - it is a result of the settings you have used.

Code: Select all

dirsize d:\ -2 -sort=name -dir -comma -nowaste -nosubs -nofiles
-2 - shows only the first two levels of folders. Remove this option to show all levels.

We've updated the help file as two samples show use of '-2' incorrectly - it should be '-size=2M'

Code: Select all

dirsize d:\ -size=2M -sort=name -dir -comma -nowaste -nosubs -nofiles
