Hi everyone,
I was wondering where all my hard drive space has gone today, and I wondered if a program that could show you what was on the hard drive existed. Kind of like a pie chart of your hard drive - each segment belonging to different categories.
Does something like this exist? It would be great to know where all the space has gone so I can delete some rubbish.

I highly recommend SpaceMonger v1.4 . It's simple, lightweight and shows you exactly where all your space went.

I see it listed as SpaceMonger 2.1.1 But also see that it does not support anything beyond XP. So be advised of those limitations. While it does get excellent reviews on XP and below OS's.

I know it works on my Windows 7 laptop at work as well as Windows Server 2003 since I've used it to find multi-GB log files before. It's really so basic that I don't see how the newer OS's could really hinder it; especially since they're using the same file system(NTFS). Find file, find size of file, make pretty picture. BAM. Done.

v1.4 is found here: http://www.sixty-five.cc/download/
Click on the free software tab and scroll down, second one from the bottom.
