As the proliferation of media (music, video, etc.), project files and programs continues to grow, so does the headache of managing your hard disk drive space. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably frustrated in always archiving data just to make space on your hard drive without knowing where exactly the largest file folders are. There’s lots of tools out there to help with this, but over the weekend I found this great, open source nugget that helps you view where your data is on your hard drive so you can target specific folders for archive.
The tool is called WinDirStat and it’s a great tool for showing you how much data is in each file on your hard drive (not to mention other, attached drives on your PC.
It’s a free application and it’s a great little tool. I invite you to take a look at it.
