Windows 7: Show all files and sizes on a selected disk

Show all files and sizes on a selected disk

I'm running very low on space on my system disk. I'd like to be able to see all the files with their sizes in one window/view. There used to be a utility that showed the contents of a disk in a segmented circle. I can't remember its name but anything like that would be of use.

Any suggestions always appreciated.
Thanks,
Burt

Shawn,
Using this utility, I recovered over 25G from my system disk and did a lot of maintenance long overdue. Thank you for this tip.

You are a blessing. I've always regarded your advise as expert, essential, informative and very useful.

Thanks again,
Burt
