Want a utility similar to Windirstat

I am looking for a utility similar to windirstat and wanted to see what you guys use.  The main things I am looking for is being able to scan for files by drive or by specified folder, which windirstat does well.  The thing I need is an ability to export the results into a CSV or some other format so I can keep a record of the results.

Any suggestions?

I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities, which I've been using for many years: http://www.nirsoft.net/

I'm not familiar with windirstat, but based on your description of what you're looking for, I think one or two of NirSoft's utilities can do it.

The first is SearchMyFiles:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/search_my_files.html

Scroll to the bottom of the page at the above URL for the download links. Note that there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It is a no-install/stand-alone executable...just unzip the file and run the EXE.

The second is FoldersReport:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/folrep.html

Although the System Requirements section doesn't mention 32-bit and 64-bit W7, I've run it in both without a problem. Regards, Joe

I like Nirsoft also, regrettably AT&T Security is now blocking the site.  NK2Edit is one of my favorite utilities, so I have to download it from home.  :(

I do like Nirsoft also, and have used quite a few of their utilities over the years, mail PV, sniffpass, to name a few.  He just hasn't updated a lot of them for some time.  While in my case, I doubt there is much of a problem with that, I was just hoping to find more like tree size.

Yes, it's true that he hasn't updated some of them, but NirLauncher shows 165 utilities, so it's a ton of work to keep that many updated. Many have been, including new 64-bit versions of some, but you're right that many haven't. I've always liked FoldersReport and I wrote to Nir earlier this year pointing out that the System Requirements section of the utility says that it supports all 32-bit Windows operating systems (Windows 9x/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP), but that I've run it in 32-bit and 64-bit W7 and it works fine in both. I asked him if I'm headed for trouble by running it in 32-bit and 64-bit W7 or is it simply that the System Requirements section hasn't been updated, and here's what he said:
FoldersReport should work properly on Windows 7, although I have never tested it on this OS. On 64-bit systems it'll work too, but... FoldersReport is a 32-bit program, and thus it'll scan the system directories of WOW64 instead of the 64-bit system directories.

Alternatively, you can use the SearchMyFiles utility in 'Summary Mode' which gives you a report similar to FoldersReport utility: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/search_my_files.html 

SearchMyFiles was updated about a year ago (the 64-bit EXE has a date stamp of 20-Oct-2012). It works very well. Regards, Joe

Thanks for the input guys!  I may use treesize pro just because it looks to be more in line with what I want, single interface, etc. But since Nirsoft still has zillions of useful tools, there is no way could leave that suggestion out.
