Editors' Review


Just like your car, it's important to keep your computer tuned up to ensure that it runs at its best. Regularly removing old and unnecessary files is crucial, and RidNacs aims to help you with this task by analyzing your PC's disk space usage. Unfortunately, its lack of viable help and vague results left a lot to be desired.

We appreciate the program's clean user interface. It consists of a small window with commands at the top for choosing directories to analyze and a blank panel for displaying results. But upon closer inspection, we found its menu items and commands a bit vague. The program doesn't include any kind of viable Help feature; it offers a link to the publisher's Web site, but unless you speak fluent German, you're out of luck. We started by selecting the Choose Directory option and choosing to analyze our C drive. The program quickly went to work letting us watch, in real time, as it scanned our folders. Bar graphs represented percentages for each folder, but we weren't sure what the percentages represented. Do the graphs reflect the percentage of free space left in each folder, or just the opposite? It was hard to tell, and because we don't speak German, we couldn't find an answer.

RidNacs cleanly installs and uninstalls. We do not recommend this program.

"The Mercedes of Disk Space Analyzers: Highly Recommend"

Does exactly what I wanted. Shows clearly how much space each folder on my disk uses. Fast and user-friendly. Clear display of how much disk space each folder takes as a percentage of the whole.


None. Best tool for disk space analysis.


Definitely recommend this tool. Suggest CNET also recommends it. Bars alongside each folder show how much space that folder takes up as a percentage of the total space taken by the root folder of your selection. If you select the C:\ folder, then the bar shows how much space that folder takes up as a percentage of your total available space used on the C:\ drive. Simple and clear. Better still, when you open a sub folder of those shown in your analysis, they too have bars showing how much they contribute to disk space usage, with their disk space being shown as a percentage of the total space used by the root folder chosen for your analysis. I joined up CNET just to write this review as I reckon this is one of the most useful and easy to use tools on CNET. Great work RidNacs.
