Showing Duplicate Files Pie Charts

The DupScout duplicate files finder provides multiple types of pie charts capable of showing the number of duplicates and the amount of wasted disk space per extension, file type, file size, file owner, last access time, modification time and creation time. In order to open the charts dialog, press the 'Charts' button located on the main toolbar.

By default, the charts dialog shows the amount of wasted disk space and the number of duplicates for the currently selected second-level file category. For example, in order to open a pie chart showing the amount of wasted disk space per extension, select the 'Categorize by Extension' second-level file category and open the charts dialog.

In addition, the charts dialog provides the user with the ability to copy the displayed chart image to the clipboard allowing one to easily integrate DupScout charts into user's documents and presentations. In order to customize the chart's description, press the 'Options' button and specify a custom chart date, time or title.
