Disk Space Finder

Editors' Review

by   / January 07, 2009

Visually-oriented users will appreciate the easy-to-understand graphics this freeware utility displays to let you know what's taking up space on your hard drive.

Disk Space Finder launches a well-designed, easy-to-use interface with two panes. The first, smaller pane lists drives and their folders in a standard tree format. The second, larger pane displays a beveled-edge pie chart that illustrates how the space in a selected folder is divided among its contents.

This utility performed very well in our tests--the scan time was short and the resulting pie chart was quickly displayed. In our tests, a folder containing 20GB of data took Disk Space Finder only five seconds to produce a chart divided among six categories, with each category's pie slice shaded in a bright, easily distinguishable color. A category name (Downloads, Pictures, RAR files, and so on) and a size (4.5GB, 2.2GB, and 1.7GB) accompanied each slice.

This tool offers a great way to determine where you may be wasting storage space--quickly and easily. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but the quick performance, the outstanding display, and the ease of use make this app a winner. Experienced users and novices alike will appreciate this free tool.
