The app scans the hard drive (or any other supported drive) and generates a colorful chart (sunburst diagram) representing the file system. This visual representation helps to identify the largest files and take further steps for optimizing the content of the drive and freeing up disk space.
Once you have determined the files that are taking up large storage space, the Disk Expert will support your next steps:
