SizeMe

 

SizeMe makes it possible to scan a directory and compare it to how many floppy/zip/CD-R/DVD-discs you need. (Many calls it spanning or span of elements over a medium). It tries to fill each disc up as much as possible, and gives you the result on each disc.

v2.0 is here, click here to read about the update!

  1. Nice way to optimize DVD’s. Just one issue – It optimizes based on files. That means it’ll move files out of directories and into the root directory when performing optimization…so organized files become unorganized. Also you can’t see that this has happened until you drag the compiliation into a burner program.

  2. Does not support Blu Ray. I know you can customize, but do not know exactly the size of the blu rays. Because it always gets to 99% and never 100%?

    • It does support Blu-ray, but you have to enter your capacity by your self.

      See Wiki for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc
      Standard disc size, single layer = 25,025,314,816 Bytes
      Standard disc size, dual layer = 50,050,629,632 Bytes

      Even though you get the capacity set right, you probably will get 99% in most cases because of the last-% is hard on any media to fill.

  3. Thank you for this software. Much better then other ones that are offered.

  4. Excellent Freeware…

    It scans the sizes of all the files & immediate sub-directories inside the user selected directory, then arrange them in groups, which could be later burn in to disks for a maximum utilization of space in each disk, and the requirement of no of disks being minimized.
    Well, any thing inside sub-directories stays there itself, they are not further moved or merged in different groups.

    But, the software cannot be fully utilized when files to be burned are in multiple directories located in different drives.. a single scan operation cannot be performed on them.. [Plz correct me if I am wrong..]

    I have a huge no of files to be burned in DVDs, which I can not copy in to a single folder. So, if I scan them separately, I don’t get the best optimization.

    Expecting the new version will solve this issue..

    Thank u…

  5. Hi Lars!
    You did a great job on SizeMe, congratulations!
    However, there’s a problem: I have to split a collection of 200GB to fit on DVD-R DL’s.
    There’s one file in the collection which is 4.3GB in size and which gives SizeMe troubles. In the ISO file, the size of this file is only 300MB. Is there a limitation in filesizes bigger 4GB? I’m using XP 32bit, all NTFS.
    Kind regards,
    Chris

  8. The Backup Mode will definitely add a lot of value. There is nothing in this category that can do that.

  9. Terrific software! It saves me many dvds as well as time.
    I will surely recommend it to my friends.
    Thank you very much!

  10. Include option of spanning data

    1. (The way you have it now)Algorithm to take up max disc space on each disc
    2. An algorithm were there are minimal breaks for files and folders-mainly
    3 Spanning where the user has the option to organize the files/folders on which disc they go on when working with a large group of files/folders.
    this option is good for files/folders where organization is needed.

  11. Nice, smart little app, works very well for me (I run Win 7 x64). Previously I used Burn to the Brim, but I disliked its interface. Thank you Lars.
