Find your biggest files

Clear up space on your hard disk with this utility.

Beginners and advanced users alike will appreciate the simplicity of Primitive File Size Chart, a utility that analyzes how much space files and folders are taking up on your computer.

The tool scans a specific disk or folder and lists the largest files and folders within. (By default, the program lists the 50 largest in each category, but you can increase or decrease this number.) The clean user interface displays the path, name, and size of each file and the name and size of each folder in sortable columns. The utility offers no Help file, although it arguably needs none. It is lightweight and does not install any files. It is so lightweight, in fact, that it shows up on neither the Taskbar nor the Alt+Tab menu, making it difficult to find if you have more than one application window open. There's something to be said for such compactness, although we would have appreciated a way to copy or export the list of files.

Primitive File Size Chart is a simple utility that can help users of any level clean their hard disk of forgotten and unwanted files.
