Feature request: Fill the hard disk!

Post by Pico1965 » 05 Mar 2017, 18:22

Hiii.

I expose my problem:

My movie collection is scattered in many HHDD.
Each movie is stored in a folder.
This is an exaple:

With only 1,6 Gb of free space, no new movie i can store into this HD.

Now I need store 3 films in this HD.
Their overall size is 73,2 GB.
I have to move elsewhere some films in order to free the necessary space.
What movie?
The request features should do just that:
1) read the souce HD
2) read the destination HD
3) the user selects the folder(s) to be moved from the source folder to destination HD
4) the program indicates what are the folders you must to move / delete in order to fill the most of the HD target

Of course, the goal to be achieved is the free space equal to zero (or the minimum possible)
Thanks for your attention

I understand your problem but this will not be possible with GetFoldersize.

Try this:

Create a list of all HDs and put the lists together (e.g. excel) and sort the column with the size.
This enables you to find a folder that matches with the free space remaining.
