No, TreeSize cannot synchronize folders.
You can use command line paramaters to start a scan and automatically generate an Excel report.
You want to scan the drive C:\ and your installation directory of TreeSize is
Your directory for your reports is
"sheet1.xlsx" as your sheet for reports.
In this case, the full command line would look like this:
"C:\Programs\JAMSoftware\TreeSize Professional\TreeSize.exe" /EXCEL "D:\MyCompany\Reports\TREESIZE\sheet1.xlsx" "C:\"
Paths containing directory names with spaces must be embraced by double quotes, so it is a consistent and careful habit, to double-quote all paths, to avoid problems. Instead of retyping the command line every time you want to scan, you can save it into a .bat-file and start it by double-clicking.
When using Excel as export format, TreeSize will create a spreadsheet with the current timestamp and save the data into this sheet. If the same file is selected for another export, TreeSize will create another sheet and append it to the file, so you won't lose the data from the previous export.
You can compare a scan to another folder using "Scan > Compare with path". This will show the size differences on folder level between the path that was scanned, and the one that was selected for comparison.
You can use the right click menu and select "Show files of this date interval" to open the file search and automatically list allf files of the selected interval. The intervals and type of date (last change, last access or creation date) of the file ages can be customized in the options dialog (Tools / Options / File Ages).
Unless instructed otherwise TreeSize deletes all files to the Windows using the same mechanism as the Windows Explorer. That means, if according to your settings files get deleted to the recycle bin, they can be recovered from there.
If you want to keep the newest file of every group only, you can select "Check all but newest" from the "Duplicate Files" tab in the ribbon menu. In addition to that, the dropdown selection offers a large variety of additonal options to custom select files. If you want to choose for each group of files individually which one to preserve, you obviously need to do this one by one.
You can search all shares of a remote machine by entering the unc path of the machine only, e.g \\machinename. You can search all shares of all members of a domain by entering the UNC path of the domain, e.g. \\domainnane.
You can adjust the intervals used for the "age of files" statistics under: Tools > Options > Age of Files
The custom search type of the TreeSize File Search, which can be opened through the Windows Start or the TreeSize Tools menu, is also very suitable to get a list of files accessed or not accessed in a certain time range.
You can select all files via the usual keyboard shortcut Ctrl-A, or via "Home > Select all" in the ribbon menu. Changing the file owner for all selected files can be done by clicking "Change file owner" in the right click menu of the result list.
The values for the "History" tab are stored in an XML file named "scanhistory.xml" in the user's AppData folder ("C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Jam Software\TreeSize").
Please copy this file to your new machine to keep your "History" values.
Yes. Open the TreeSize Professional File search using the Windows Start menu or the TreeSize Tools menu, activate only the duplicate file search, add the network paths in the "Scan paths" panel and start the scan.
