NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade spacemonger -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade spacemonger -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

SpaceMonger is a tool for keeping track of the free space on your computer. Each file or folder on a given drive is displayed in a box in the main window whose size is a relative comparison to all the other files in your system. So, for example, if the "Windows" box takes up 90% of the screen, the "C:\Windows" folder and all its sub-folders and files are taking up 90% of your "C:" drive.

SpaceMonger is not a terribly complicated program to use, so the current version doesn't come with a user's manual. At the bottom of this page you can find a few helpful instructions for using it if you need them.

First-Time Instructions
When you first use SpaceMonger, follow these instructions if you don't know what to do:

When you first open it, you will initially be presented with a blank window. Click "Open".
Click on a drive, like drive "C", and hit "OK".
Wait patiently while the program collects statistics on your drive. My, don't you have a lot of files!
SpaceMonger will then show you the contents of your drive as little rectangles. The larger the rectangle, the more space something is taking up. In the screen-shot on this page, above, which you can click to enlarge, "Windows" is taking up a full 20% of this drive.

Rectangles that have other rectangles in them are folders. Rectangles with no other rectangles in them are files. Colors are used to show how deeply the files and folders are nested.

You can get more information on a given folder by clicking on its title and then clicking "Zoom In" (or by double-clicking on its title). The window will change to show a larger, more detailed view of the folder and its files. You can zoom in as many times as you want. "Zoom Out" will take you back out (up) by one folder. "Zoom Full" will take you all the way back to show the whole drive.

If you see files or folders you want to delete, click them and hit "Delete". They will be moved to the Recycle Bin. If you want to see what they are first, click on them and hit "Run or Open", which will try to run them if they are programs or open them if they are files.

If you click the "Setup" button, you can change some aesthetic things about the program. You can't damage anything with the Setup dialog box, so feel free to try various options until you like how SpaceMonger looks and feels.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
