I've been installing / uninstalling stuff while testing on a CLEAN install of Windows 7 (x-64).
I see now one of the directories (Documents and settings username1) is now 7GB.
The WHOLE OS only takes around 14 GB
I can't see what's taking up the space -- is there any nice utility that clearly can show Disk usage in a sort of cloured pie / bar chart etc rather like the nice Linux utility DU. (I've enabled "show hidden files etc").
I'm sure it's all related to me installing / uninstalling stuff but Windows explorer is a HORRIBLE tool for "Cleaning up" disks etc. It's fine for everyday purposes but for this type of stuff it's not the correct tool.
