I work on a Laptop with a 40 GB hard drive. It’s going on 3 years old now . . . and it’s getting pretty full. I used to go through my hard drive and search for the biggest files, then scan through them and delete as needed. Man, that took a while. Well, I found a great new (and FREE!) program called WinDirStat (thanks Maximum PC Mag) that is so useful, I had to jot it down here so you could partake.
It’s a simple program that simply scans your hard drive, then gives you a color coded block “map” of your files. The bigger the block, the larger the file. So, if you have some video footage from a camera you don’t need, this will pinpoint it so you can zap it right there. Seriously, you can’t know how helpful it is until you use it.
