How many of what?

Most new computers these days come with big honkin’ hard drives. You can put a lot of stuff on these hard drives, but what kind of stuff? And how many files of what kind of stuff?

TreeSize

  

For years I’ve used TreeSize – a free program from JAM Software – to find out how much and what kind lives on hard drives. It’s done a pretty good job of it for me, too. But lately I wanted more information and prettier, too.  

WinDirStat 

  

Enter WinDirStat, another free (my favorite price!!) program with a much more visual flair. And it does file type counts across drives, which I find interesting.  

Neither program can tell you what stuff you should get rid of, but at least you’ll know how much stuff there is and where it lives.
