Disk Management Software

Hey Everyone,

I presently use Visdir to view the disk usage statistics of both local and network resources. It is, however, a rather horrific resource hog. Does anyone know of a better and (preferably free) program I can use for this purpose?

You can try WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics
It is free and I am very satisfied with it's performance.
Local and network directories are supported.

It's neat, but not quite what I was wanting. Thanks though! I'll keep seeking others.

The pie chart was nice. My interest isn't in what type of files are filling the hard drives, but how much space each folder takes.

Long Story Short: I work for a School District, and we use it for quick & dirty management of my document folders. It's more about tracking the size of folders then knowing how much of what is in them.
