Hi there.. recently i'm quite amazed by how my disk space is being used up.. thou its a 160bg internal hard drive but i dun rem actually using sooo much space for storing files and videos etc.. infact.. the pictures and videos and any other random files are all on my external hard drive.. in fact, even the games i play are installed on the external hard drive.. so i'm wondering where alll these used space have gone to.. i used to have 160gb.. 7 gb used for the ghost image.. and then the rest just goes down by itself without me doing any installations or whatsoever.. now i'm left with about 15gb space.. is there any tools or software that would help me here? like find out where all those space is going to? frankly speaking, i'm at a loss for words where my free space are going.. and i do disk defrag plus disk clean up and use CCcleaner every week but space is still being used up.. i do clean up my restore points to the most recent ones and that's about what i usually do to maintain my drive.. glad to have any advice here.. thx! =)

There are several free applications that will show you what is taking up hard drive space. Many Members, including myself, use SequoiaView:
