Very nice, FAST and convenient program. Visualization is superb.

One problem: does not support unicode, thus folder names with different character sets can't be opened using the right click. minor or major - YMMV.

Great program! I used to use JDiskReport, but I find the interface of this one nicer and more intuitive. You can see many levels (subdirectories, and their subdirectories) at the same time. Perfect for immediately getting an overview of what's taking up space on your hard drives.

My favorite disk space display tool.

Actually it DOES write settings to the registry, when you enlarge/reduce the view with the + and - buttons...

I've been using this app for years. Found it on Great if you do a lot of downloading, or if you find your HD's or TD's keep getting full.

This is a GREAT program, I've actually been using on my USB key for some time now. It is the best program for finding space hoggers.
