    WinDirStat

    WinDirStat reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views:

    - The directory list, which resembles the tree view of the Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size,
    - The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away,
    - The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types.

    Good stuff, Alan.

    I managed to run the program using just the EXE within the ZIP containing all the installation files, ie, without actually installing the program.

    After having come very close to completely filling my C: drive, I went on the hunt for a utility that would help me to identify which directories were taking up space. This one helped me to locate an Adobe Premier temporary project directory that was sucking up 25 gigs all by itself.

    It also has some very useful reports, and other features that help to facilitate disk cleanup. The visual map of the drive is really very impressive all on its own.

    If you're looking for an effective way to clean up your drive, this is certainly it.
