Advanced file management

Here’s another PowerPack Challenge contestant to check out – File System Management powerpack by Quintus Jones III.

Find folder sizes, volume by file owner, old and unused files, and much more - all in a nifty powerpack by Quintus.

Find folder sizes, volume by file owner, old and unused files, and much more - all in a nifty powerpack by Quintus.

It has a few really neat PowerShell scripts put together into a useful library which can help manage storage on your file servers or personal desktop:

  • Browse folders seeing their total sizes (I have always missed that in Windows Explorer ;))
  • See total volume of files by owner (and drill down into any subfolder to track where they are),
  • Find the largest files on disk,
  • Locate temporary files,
  • Find old files,
  • Find compressed/archive files.

In addition to that, the pack adds a few nice actions such as AddTo-Zip which shows up for file objects, so you can select the old/large/temporary files and zip them so they take up less space on your drive.

Lots of useful functionality and PowerShell scripts to help you in your day by day file-related tasks. Get the pack here and submit any feedback in the library entry comments.

(There’s about a week left to submit your PowerPacks for the first sprint of the contest. Share your scripts with the community and get a chance to win one of the prizes.)
