This highly depends on the performance of your hard disk, your PC, the number of files and folders and the settings. Just use our free an fully functional trial version and try for yourself. TreeSize scan using parallel threads and you won 't find a disk space manager that scans faster.

TreeSize stores data only on folder level, otherwise the mount of data would be too large.This is why it can 't display the the size increase of files.

We also offer another disk space manager called SpaceObServer which is designed for large servers and continuous reporting. It regularly collects the file system information using a background agent and stores it in a SQL database, including size development. It uses less RAM than TreeSize Pro and the reporting capabilities are faster and more flexible because it is built on a database and collects data on file level. SpaceObServer offers advanced scripting capabilities through OLE Automation. If you are interested, please visit: https://www.jam-software.com/spaceobserver/

This kind of task is more suitable to our hard disk manager SpaceObServer. By continuously collecting directory information in a database, SpaceObServer enables your to get instant information about directory sizes, growth of allocated disc space (for each subdirectory) and to define filters (E.g.: Files created within the last X days) that can be applied immediately on the shown directory branch.What you could do in TreeSize is to take a look at the "Age of Files" graphics (look for files create within the last few days), or compare the current scan with a former stored XML report ("File > Compare With XML Report").
