Disk Degragmentor says my disk is 93% full and says I must delete some files in order to run it. I therefore need to see a tabulation of all my folders with the size of each one shown. I can't figure out how to do that. Start>Explore shows me the folders, but not how big they are, unless I drill down and look file by file, which would take a month. Can anyone help, please? Ian.

One way is to right click on a folder and select Properties, which will show you how much space is being used by the folder and its contents.

I would suggest using a file utility such as Sequoia View:


A "lighter" application is Jam Software's Tree Size


Either of these free applications will give you enough information to make some decisions.

Have you already run the Windows Disk Cleanup Utility?
