DirUse Syntax

DirUse uses the following syntax:

Art Image diruse [/s|/v] [/m|/k|/b] [/c] [/,] [/q: Size] [/l] [/a] [/d] [/o] [/*] DirList [/? | /h | /help]

Parameters

/s
Includes subdirectories of the specified directories in the output.

/v
Writes progress reports while scanning subdirectories. The /v parameter is ignored if /s is specified.

/m
Displays disk usage in megabytes.

/k
Displays disk usage in kilobytes.

/b
Displays disk usage in bytes (default).

/c
Uses compressed file size instead of apparent file size.

See Diruse Examples.

/,
Displays the thousands separator (comma or period) in file sizes.

/q: Size
Marks, with an exclamation point (!), directories that exceed the specified size. If /m (megabytes) or /k (kilobytes) are not specified, the size is assumed to be in bytes. If /q is specified and any directory is found that exceeds the specified size, the return code is ONE. Otherwise the return code is ZERO.

/l
Writes overflows to the log file Diruse.log in the current directory.

/a
Specifies that an alert is generated if sizes specified by the /q: parameter are exceeded. The Alerter service must be running, and the alert appears only when you are using DirUse.

/d
Displays only directories that exceed specified sizes.

/o
Specifies that subdirectories are not checked to see if they exceed the specified size.

/*
Uses the top-level directories residing in the directories specified in DirList.

DirList
Specifies a list of directories to check. DirList is required if you are doing anything other than getting command-line usage. Use semicolons, commas, or spaces to separate multiple directories.

See Diruse Examples for examples where DirList is a folder on a network volume and where DirList contains a list of folders.

/?| /h| /help
Displays command-line usage.

Note

  • When run without parameters, DirUse displays command-line usage.
