Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


Drive Name Display

FileBoss can display drives in the main window in two ways either just showing the drive path, e.g. C:\ or with the volume names as shown in the two graphics below respectively. It can also display and sort drives by their sizes and used and free space.


Drive name display - simple     Drive name display - info

To change the way drives are displayed use the Edit > Program Options... command from the main menu.


 Menu Options > Program Options... command


In the resulting dialog select the Views panel and then check or uncheck the Show Drive Names option as approriate.


Change option to display drive infiormation


There are three possible settings in addition to None. The last setting "9999 / 9900 / 99" displays the total size / size used / size free.
