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.

Developer's Description

Disk Space Finder helps to visualize your data that is taking up the most space on your computer. This makes it to delete anything you no longer need and free up disk space. It scans your computer to find out all folders that take up the most disk space, and presents them in a pie chart allowing you to drill down into the largest folders until you find data that can be removed. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
