"Disk usage statistics viewer."

Winner Best software in 2014 - Disk info.

WinDirStat is a free utility that helps you to understand where your files are stored and, possibly, why you have so little hard drive space left free. When initially opening the app, you are presented with a list of the hard drives (and partitions) on your computer. This includes the drive letter & name, total drive space, free space, used space and a bar chart to visually see how packed your drive(s) are. Once you double-click a drive, WinDirStat goes to work loading information about the folder and file structure of the drive selected. Once the basic directory tree is shown, you can then click on individual folders which can then open up to display sub-folders below them. At each level, folders are shown with information about what percentage they use of the total storage, how many sub-folders, files, etc. As you navigate around, you can get a much better idea what types of files are taking up the most space and know where to take action to free up space.

WinDirStat Key Features:

  • Analyze each drive or partition
  • Drill down into sub folders to see what files are consuming gigabytes
  • Pac-Man animation as WinDirStat examines each directory structure
  • Summary of free space on your system
  • Interesting and colorful blocks in the footer representing allocated space

If you want to track down which files and folders are eating up your free drive space, then WinDirStat is an excellent and fast little application for Windows that does just that.
