Follow mount points and external symbolic links to directories

You can decide if TreeSize should follow symbolic links and mount points (see Notes on NTFS for additional information) that point to other drives or folders on other drives. Links that point within the scanned directory will never be followed in order to prevent circular references and folders from being counted twice.

Skip offline files

Certain search types, such as the duplicates search via MD5-checksum, or the custom search for file content, accesses the content of a file. This would trigger the download of offline files, which is not intended in most cases. Activate this option, to prevent this.
