+1 cCleaner is a fantastic tool. That is, if you DON'T use the registry cleaner bit

Which also counts hardlinks multiple times, while technically it should, the results are not accurate. The Hardlinks also extend into Program Files as well.

It may well count hard links, but that doesn't matter if it's a big file and not just lots of little files that he's looking to find.
