GetFoldersize commandline

Post by kuma_1 » 13 Mar 2016, 09:46

Is there a way to get the commandline to save a CSV as it does when you use the GUI?

The format I am trying to get my data works perfectly when using the GUI and setting it to scan all files/folders and show those totals in MB on the first folder(user data folders). I am setting it to save as CSV and use a comma as a delimiter.

I have been trying to use GetFoldersize.exe -s -d0 "c:\Folder Size.CSV" "\\local\corp\users"
but this is showing each subfolder, it has a comma but the whole line is in the one excel cell and then the size in bytes.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you.

Only at the GUI you can choose how many folder levels should be saved.
I will note this at our ToDo-List to add the option to the command-line.

Please use another separator if you open your csv-files with Excel and the data will be displayed at the wrong columns.
Or open Excel first, load the csv file and Excel start the Text Convert Wizard.
