    Hi. I would like to know if there is some sort of app that tells you what files and folders are taking up the most space on your harddrive. I can't find anything like it and I'm not sure if it exists. If anyone could help me out here I would greatly appreciate it.

    Glary Utilities is a free bundle of helpful apps. one of which figures out which folders take up a lot of space, biggest files, biggest drives (used space wise), etc, etc.

    I second WinDirStat, it is very useful for figuing out where your hard drive space is going.

    SpaceMonger is great too (there is still the free version available). Although it isn't quite compatible with Vista / ntfs it does work and gives you a nice graphical representation of your disc usage. Kopete has a plugin I think that does pretty much the same thing (but you prolly aren't using Kopete / KDE for Windows [​IMG]).
