Treesize is a program that lets you see a graph of the space being used on your computer so you know what is taking up space.

I just freed up 3.79 GB of space that I desperately need by deleting itunes temp files and google desktop cache. Without treesize, since it was a series of small files and not one big one, I couldn't figure out what to delete.

Do you have to install something? How does it work?

you install the program and then run it and scan the C drive. Then it shows bar graphs of what files are taking up all the room.

WinDirStat (Windows Directory Statistics) is a good program for that as well. :thumbup2:

Plus there's nothing to install. Just run the downloaded executable.

It also works on network drives which is really nice. :thumbsup:

I like JDiskReport, because the Pie chart graphic display is much more appropriate and easier to read for comparative sizes than the bar chart format of tree size.

I don't read minds. Please help everyone by answering any questions and reporting on the results of any instructions. Query any concerns and explain problems or complications.

You're right. It looks like the latest version is a setup file. The version I downloaded was a zip file that extracted all the files to a single directory and ran the executable from there.

1.1.2 (the setup from the .zip files is NO LONGER supported - use the installer instead)

http://sourceforge.net/projects/windirstat/files/

There are also .zip file downloads (1.1.2 and older) available from the above link.

I use Disk Space Reporter, myself. However, it doesn't present any shiny pie charts.
