SpaceMonger is a treemapping tool for hard disks and file systems.

Version history

Version 1.4 is freeware, distributed online as a 103Kb Pkzip archive -- the program itself is a Windows 9x compatible standalone .EXE which needs no installer. It shows a treemap of files and lets the user open and delete individual files. Some users prefer its smaller size and relative simplicity to later versions.

Version 2.1.1 is shareware, (more specifically nagware), and requires a 1279Kb installer. Its code-base is a complete re-write [ [http://www.sixty-five.cc/sm/faq.php SpaceMonger FAQ] ] , and features file copy/move, animated zooming, new menu selections, commonly used tool buttons, and a faster scanning algorithm.

Limitations of v1.4

* Only maps entire storage devices, but the subst command can be used to circumvent this.
* No integration with Windows Explorer, but the text-only tool Gauge It!Fact|date=July 2008 is able to integrate the mapping functionality with Windows Explorer and provide a context-driven map of limited sub-directories.
* No auto refresh, filesystem changes are not tracked until a manual rescan is requested.

Publicity

Steve Gibson has mentioned SpaceMonger twice on his internet radio show Security Now! (episodes [http://www.grc.com/SecurityNow.htm#88 88] and [http://www.grc.com/SecurityNow.htm#108 108] ). From 2001-2004 [http://www.pricelessware.org/thelist/fil.htm#Disk%20Space%20Reporting Pricelessware] included SpaceMonger in its list of best Windows freeware as selected by the readers of alt.comp.freeware. The June 2004 "Maximum PC" included SpaceMonger v1.40 on its CD-ROM [ [http://www.pcmagdiscs.jetecnet.com/MaxPCTables/MaxPC_Jun04_table.html MaximumPC June 2004 table ] ] . Perhaps most SpaceMonger publicity comes from blogs, newsgroups, journalists ["Faqs! Facts! Fax! Default lower case", 01/07/2008, Rick Maybury [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/connected/main.jhtml?xml=/connected/2008/07/01/ecrfaqs101.xml] ] and word of mouth.
