Re: I'm looking for a free utility

Wow! Thanks for the blast from the past! XtreeGold was one of my fav DOS
utilities. I often wondered what happened to those old utilities...

BUT HOWEVER THE THING IS that won't work for me. I need something that scans
the entire hard drive and shows me at a glance which folders are taking up
the most space. As I said, I have 146gb on a drive and most of it is full
but I can't tell where the space is being taken.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

I have to strongly endorse this recommendation.
TreeSize is a fantastic and supremely useful application.

Start, Search, For Files or Folders, Search all Folders, do a search under
"What size is it?" and specify a size until you find the large files or
folders that are taking up so much space. Don't have to download or pay for
it; it's already included in Windows.

SequoiaView - it's not only effective, it makes this sort of thing almost
fun!
(and it works in just about every version of Windows)

WinDirStat or SequoiaView.

The first is at http://windirstat.sourceforge.net/

They do a very nice graphical display of files as rectangles whose area is
proportional to their size. Easy to spot big files.

I'm not sure about SequoiaView in Vista 64, but I'm using WinDirStat here
with no problems.

I thought I had a shortcut to SequoiaView, but I can't find it, so I
suggest Googling.

I'll second that. SequoiaView is a great free program for finding your
big files (and small ones, too, if you look closely).
