    Default Best way to find disk space hogs

    My Windows XP pro machine tells me I'm low on space on my C:
    After removing useless programs what's the best way to hunt down duplicate data and useless data?
    Is there a program which will display largest to smallest files etc? over the entire hard drive, not just system 32?

    SpaceMonger is also good - displays all your data in coloured squares, the size different depeniding on how big the folder is

    I like WinDirStat (also free): http://windirstat.info/

    You can download it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/windirstat/

    I also use NoClone 2007 Free for finding duplicate files: http://noclone.net/

    Yep unfortunately the newer version is payware but you can still get the older version which is free. What I like the most is you dont need to install it, just run the single exe

    Maybe the best of both worlds , similar to treesize but is also standalone.
    i.disk
    Ever stop to think, and forgot to start again?

    AFAIK, you don't have to pay to use it though, it just nags you to buy it each time you open and close it. Still the best though IMO

    To make it stand alone, just install it on your drive, copy the program folder to your USB stick then uninstall from your drive.

    Disk Data is and has been my choice for years.
    The latest version has a nag screen for a few seconds if you are not registered. Bit difficult to register on my laptop which is never under any circumstances allowed to even look at the internet.
    There are still some of us around with these strange ideas.
