Free! – Hunting for Space Hogs On Your Hard Drive

If you want to know at a glance which files are taking up your disk space, an application called WINDIRSTAT creates a graphical depiction of your hard drive.


You'll see all of your files as color-coded rectangles arranged in an intuitive tree diagram. The largest files will show up as big rectangles, while smaller files show up as smaller rectangles. You can navigate through your drive by pointing and clicking and using the zoom function. By clicking on different files, folders, and levels, you can open, rename, or delete files.
