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!!

You could try WinDirStat.

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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
