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.

 

Free Up Storage Space

When a video services consultant needed more space in a hurry for a new client, he used FileBoss and File Sets to display all the files on his main drive sorted by size in descending order.

He then quickly deleted several of the larger files that he knew were temporary files left over from previous projects and started on the work for the new client.

 

First Create a File Set

   A File Set contains files across multiple folders on a disk, multiple disks or even network drives. The search that creates a File Set can be simple (just include all files) to the highly specific (these type of files greater than xx bytes and created since, etc., etc., etc.)

   Click here to see how to create a File Set.

   For this job, a File Set was created of the files in D:\Video Projects because the consultant knew that the really big files were there. Knowing that he only wanted to delete video files he specified that only files matching the patterns *.tmp | *.bak | ~*.* | *.~ | *.vid should be included in the File Set.

   Remember that you can save File Set definitions for later use making it easy and quick to repeat this operation another time.

 

Sort the Entries in the File Set

   Simply click on the Size column header to sort by size. Clicking on the Size header once will sort with the smallest file at the top, clicking a second time will sort with the biggest file at the top.

Select the Files to Delete

   Use any of FileBoss' advanced selection methods to pick the files you want to delete. From simply selecting 'All' to selecting by almost any criteria you can think of FileBoss will make this step really easy.

Delete the Files

   Use the Actions > Delete... command from the main menu

   or press Shift-Del (or just Del to send them to the Recycle Bin.
