Hey all

I used to use treesize to get an idea of file types and what space they were taking up on server shares.  Treesize used to let you run it right no the server.  Anyone know of a version that still allows you to, or perhaps a save alternative?
Thank you all!!

I do not quite understand. The current version of Tree Size Pro runs on workstations and servers both and is very inexpensive so is worth it.
