Managing disk space efficiently is crucial for the optimal performance of any computer. Free disk space analyser tools are essential for identifying and removing unnecessary files, thereby freeing up valuable disk space. This blog presents a comprehensive overview of the top eight free disk space analyser tools that can aid in streamlining and optimizing hard drive management.


1. TreeSize Free : TreeSize Free supports the removal of files within the program, scans individual folders and entire hard drives, and offers a portable option. It operates exclusively on Windows. This is my personal favourite.


2. Disk Savvy : Disk Savvy offers a user-friendly interface with extensive features, including the ability to categorize files in several ways, perform simultaneous scans of multiple locations, and export results to a report file. It supports various Windows operating systems.


3. Windows Directory Statistics (WinDirStat) : WinDirStat provides unique visualization methods to analyse disk space and configure custom clean up commands. It can scan entire drives or specific folders and works exclusively on Windows.


4. Disktective : Disktective is a portable tool that allows scanning of large files in specific folders or entire drives. It provides two ways to view disk space usage and is suitable for Windows users.


5. JDiskReport : JDiskReport displays disk space usage in five perspectives and is suitable for users on Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems.


6. RidNacs : RidNacs features a minimal and simple interface with a portable option. It scans large files in specific folders or entire drives and is exclusive to Windows.


7. SpaceSniffer : SpaceSniffer provides results that can be filtered in multiple ways, backed up, and opened without rescanning. It is only compatible with the Windows operating system.


8. Folder Size : Folder Size integrates with File Explorer, allowing users to sort folders by size. It is extremely user-friendly but is designed only for older versions of Windows.

Conclusion:

Selecting the right disk space analyser tool depends on specific requirements and the operating system used. The featured tools provide a range of functionalities, from user-friendly interfaces to visual representations of disk space usage. By leveraging these free applications, users can efficiently manage their hard drive space, leading to enhanced system performance and productivity.

I have captured from one of Facebook page where I thought sharing would help few of us Smile

Here are the Telugu alphabets

Time, Anger and Disrespect

Time is precious to everyone. It’s a bad habit to keep other people waiting. Almost everyone feels that one of their most valued commodities is their time. This being the case, one of the ultimate slaps and most sure way to annoy someone is to keep them waiting. While most people are somewhat forgiving, keeping them waiting is a sign of disrespect. The subtle message is, “My time is more important than yours.”
Deep down, we all know that no one likes to be kept waiting. Therefore, it’s highly stressful to keep other people waiting because you know you are disappointing someone. In the back of your mind, you know well the person is looking at his watch, wondering why you are late. You may be keeping him from personal or professional commitments and that could make him angry.
There are obviously exceptions to the rule – times when factors beyond your control prevent you from being on time. Things happen to all of us, and no one has a perfect record. Truthfully, however, a vast majority of the time, being late is preventable by planning ahead, allowing a little extra time, or making allowances for unexpected problems.
Many times we compound the problem by making excuse like “traffic was horrible,” when, in reality, traffic is virtually always horrible. The problem wasn’t traffic – but the fact that we didn’t factor enough time in our schedule for the traffic. It’s likely the case that, even if traffic was horrible, or you got off to a late start, or whatever the excuse, the other person isn’t going to be interested or impressed.
I wouldn’t underestimate the negative impact of making someone wait. It drives some people crazy. And, even if they don’t express their frustration to you directly, it can show up in other ways – not taking you seriously, avoiding you when possible, being disrespectful, choosing to spend their time with others instead of you, showing up late to your future appointments, etc.

10 Great Features in 10 Different OSes

If you are making the ultimate OS, what features would you choose?

  1. Mac OS X, Time Machine: Apple introduced Time Machine backup software with the Mac OS X 10.5 in 2007. You can back up to a local drive connected via USB or Fire wire, or even to network storage via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. As long as your backup volume is available. Time Machine creates hourly, daily and weekly incremental backups of your system.
  2. Unix, The Shell Terminal: There's always tension between command-line and graphical interfaces, and for the last decade or more, GUIs have been the dominant face of most OSes. But as Max Steenbergen writes in his article "Commands Lines: Alive & Kicking" for UX Magazine, the command line is making a comeback via app launchers like Alfred, Launchy and GNOME Do.
  3. Ubuntu, Simplified Linux Setup: Ubuntu aims for easy installation and configuration, and that's been my experience so far. You can download a live CD ISO or a Windows installer to get going. It doesn't require much of a commitment if you just want to give Ubuntu a try. Burn the ISO to CD and boot from that, or install it in a virtual machine using VirtualBox, Virtual PC or VMWare Player
  4. BeOS, 64-Bit Journaling File System: When Jean Louis Gasse left Apple, he founded a new team that created the charming and forward-looking BeOS in 1991.The file system included with BeOS, however, is one of its truly cool features. Called BFS (BeOS File System), it was a 64-bit journaling file system using file attributes, or metadata. The ability to query and sort against file metadata gave BFS some relational database-like quality similar to what we may finally see via WinFS in Windows 8. The 64-bit address space gave BFS the theoretical ability to support volumes of more than eight exobytes and files over 30 GB. This at a time when 30 GB hard drives were hardly commonplace.
  5. IRIX, SGI Dogfight: The first components of what would become the Dogfight demo were created by Gary Tarolli in the early '80s. OK, technically Dogfight wasn't an OS feature like some of the other items we've discussed here, but it was designed specifically to highlight the advanced (for the time) 3D rendering capabilities of SGI's systems.
  6. NeXTSTEP, Right-Click Context Menu: While the Mac OS didn’t embrace the right-click context menu until much later, it was an OS feature from the start in NeXTSTEP.
  7. MS-DOS, BASIC: MS-DOS was undeniably the dominant desktop operating system throughout the '80s, and every one of those computers running MS-DOS included the Microsoft BASIC programming language in one form or another. In fact, the version of BASIC created by Paul Allen and Bill Gates predates even MS-DOS, originating as Altair BASIC in the '70s
  8. Windows 3.0, Alt-Tab Task Switching: Pressing the Alt and Tab keys brings up a window that displays an icon for each open window present on the system (even if minimized). The currently active window is highlighted by default. Holding down the Alt key, you release and press the Tab key to move the highlight to the next window, thereby making it the active window and bringing it to the front.
  9. iOS, Multi-Touch: The introduction of what we now know as iOS for the iPhone in 2007, however, represented the first chance for many of us to have a hands-on experience with multi-touch
  10. Windows 7, Start Menu and Taskbar: The Start menu and taskbar as we know them in Windows today debuted in Windows 95. With each new release of Windows, new features have been added: integrated search, pinned applications, recently used files and one-click access to often used folders and system configuration tools. Vista added the ability to type a string into the search box and get a list of files and applications matching that string. Windows 7 made that feature actually work properly (mostly through more efficient file indexing) and added per-application recently used file listings.

These are captured from blog of Terrence Dorsey, who is the editor of MSDN Magazine.

Understanding VARCHAR(MAX) in SQL Server 2005

In SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 7, a row cannot exceed 8000 bytes in size. This means that a VARBINARY column can only store 8000 bytes (assuming it is the only column in a table), a VARCHAR column can store up to 8000 characters and an NVARCHAR column can store up to 4000 characters (2 bytes per unicode character). This limitation stems from the 8 KB internal page size SQL Server uses to save data to disk.

To store more data in a single column, you needed to use the TEXT, NTEXT, or IMAGE data types (BLOBs) which are stored in a collection of 8 KB data pages that are separate from the data pages that store the other data in the same table. These data pages are arranged in a B-tree structure. BLOBs are hard to work with and manipulate. They cannot be used as variables in a procedure or a function and they cannot be used inside string functions such as REPLACE, CHARINDEX or SUBSTRING. In most cases, you have to use READTEXT, WRITETEXT, and UPDATETEXT commands to manipulate BLOBs.
To solve this problem, Microsoft introduced the VARCHAR(MAX),  NVARCHAR(MAX), and VARBINARY(MAX) data types in SQL Server 2005. These data types can hold the same amount of data BLOBs can hold (2 GB) and they are stored in the same type of data pages used for other data types. When data in a MAX data type exceeds 8 KB, an over-flow page is used. SQL Server 2005 automatically assigns an over-flow indicator to the page and knows how to manipulate data rows the same way it manipulates other data types. You can declare variables of MAX data types inside a stored procedure or function and even pass them as variables. You can also use them inside string functions.

Microsoft recommend using MAX data types instead of BLOBs in SQL Server 2005. In fact, BLOBs are being deprecated in future releases of SQL Server.

SQL SERVER Tweaks

Here are some shortcuts to monitor and admin SQL Server

Determines Server available disk space:
xp_fixeddrives

Determine Log Size Log Space used and status of the available databases

DBCC SQLPERF(LOGSPACE);
GO


Database size and service broker information:

DBCC CHECKDB

Uses to get information of the database work tables to hold intermediate results and for sort operations

How to get Current time and user information:

SELECT
    CURRENT_TIMESTAMP AS TIME,
    USER AS Username,
    SYSTEM_USER AS System_Username,
    CURRENT_USER AS Current_Username,
    SESSION_USER AS Session_Username

How to: List all files in a Drive using C#

The code below shows how to use the System.IO.DirectoryInfo function to retreive all the files in the specified location, it also show how to get the extension and other information. Here in this code sample checking for DriveType CD Rom and files in that CD Drive.

Here is a sample code snippet for doing this. Have fun!

System.IO.DriveInfo[] drives = System.IO.DriveInfo.GetDrives();
string strDriverLetter = "";
bool boolDriveIsReady = false;
foreach (System.IO.DriveInfo drive in drives)
{
    if (drive.DriveType == System.IO.DriveType.CDRom)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Drive Name: " + drive.Name);
        strDriverLetter = drive.Name;
        boolDriveIsReady = drive.IsReady;
        break;
    }
}
if (boolDriveIsReady == true)
{
    boolDriveIsReady = false;
    DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(strDriverLetter);
    FileInfo[] exFiles = di.GetFiles("*.exe");
    foreach (FileInfo fi in exFiles)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("File Name: " + fi.Name + "Extension "+ fi.Extension);
        if (fi.Name.ToUpper().Equals("LAUNCH.EXE"))
        {                        
            boolDriveIsReady = true;
            break;
        }
    }

How do I debug a custom action/installer class?

Here is how you can do debug custom action.  You can try using one of the following methods:

  • Add a call in your code to System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Launch. This method opens Just-In-Time debugging and enables you to attach a new debugger to your code.
  • Add a call in your code to MessageBox.Show("Debug Me"). When the message box is shown, use Visual Studio to attach to the MessageBox process. Then add breaks (for Visual C# projects) or stops (for Visual Basic projects) in the code.
  • Set your debugging preferences to start %windir%\Microsoft.net\Framework\version\InstallUtil.exe as an external program on the Debug Page of the Project Designer. The name of the custom action assembly is the command line arguments. When you press F5, you hit your breakpoint. InstallUtil.exe will run your custom actions just as MSI does.

Life was difficult until i find this solution from MSDN.

How to: Deploying Sliverlight applications in different machines

I am working on my silverlight application and i need to deploy the same on multiple machines as i need to test its performance on different servers.

Here is a small work around to do this.

  • Unzip the .XAP file in the clientBin folder of the website with WinRar or other archivator or Rename your XAP file to zip
  • Extract the zip file to a folder
  • Edit ServiceReference.ClientConfig in notepad
  • Here is the snippet of ServiceReference.ClientConfig.
<configuration>
    <system.serviceModel>
        <bindings>
            <customBinding>
                <binding name="CustomBinding_DPService" closeTimeout="00:10:00" openTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00"  receiveTimeout="00:10:00">
                    <binaryMessageEncoding />
                    <httpTransport maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647" maxBufferSize="2147483647">
                        <extendedProtectionPolicy policyEnforcement="Never" />
                    </httpTransport>
                </binding>
            </customBinding>
        </bindings>
        <client>
            <endpoint address="/SLSampleWebsite/DPService.svc" 
                binding="customBinding" bindingConfiguration="CustomBinding_DPService"
                contract="ServiceReference1.DPService" name="CustomBinding_DPService" />
        </client>
    </system.serviceModel>
</configuration>



  • Update the endpoint address in the XML with relevant address if its hosted in different machine or in the same machine.


  • Add the folder contents to ZIP file



            <endpoint address="http://Server1/SLSampleWebsite/DPService.svc" 



  • After updating the ServiceReference.ClientConfig, Compress all files again to create new .ZIP file.


  • Delete the old .XAP file and remame the .ZIP to XAP file



It works great!
