Windows Directory Statistics

The terabytes of hard drives in the market rarely makes us concerned about disk space utilization. However we don't get that luxury for solid state drives. I was running out of disk space with the 128 GB SSD in my work PC and needed to clean up a bit. This tool helped me to do that better.

Windows Directory Statistics
URL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/windirstat/

It helps you to understand disk utilization and clean up space more easily. It shows disk, file and directory sizes in a treelist as well as graphically in a treemap.

@binaryman: Thanks for suggesting. Directory Report seems to be a commercial tool where Windows Directory Statistics is an open source with GPL license. I would go for the later :).
