Is your hard drive full?  Do you know why?  Sometimes one of the hardest parts of freeing up space on your computer is figuring out exactly what is taking up all of that space in the first place.  That's where WinDirStat can help.  It's a free program and you can download it at: cnet.  Here's how to use it:

1.) Install WinDirStat or open it if it's already installed.
2.) Select the drive that you want to analyze.

3.) After the graphic pops up if you hover over one of the boxes it will tell you the name of the file at the bottom left corner of the window.

4.) To go to the folder location click it once in the graphic and press Ctrl+E.


  1. Directory Report is another good tool.
    It looks just like the MS-Explorer but always shows the folder size.

  2. Thanks for the tip binaryman!
