WinDirStat is a visual drive space manager that uses treemaps to represent each file as a colored rectangle, allowing you to instantly visualize file distribution across an entire drive or folder. In addition, the file types are color coded and can be clicked to reveal file name and details with options to access via Windows Explorer, copy the path, or to delete the file. The concept is very similar to SequoiaView, however it provides additional folder tree access and an easier to use interface, as well as right-click integration via SendTo menu.
Has anyone used Windirstat before? If you haven't tried it yet, here's the download ... it does work with Windows 7, altho' it's not listed.

This is a great tool. Makes it easier to figure out where your memory is going.

I have used it quite a bit. It worked with Windows 7 RC but have not tried it lately. It's a great little program. I love it.

If you're looking for a graphical view of what's taking the space on your disk (or a network share) please check out SequioaView or FileTreeView. I'm biased toward the latter, cos I wrote it, but it is based on the fantastic work in SequioaView.
Please check out FileTreeView – a SequioaView-like Application « Scott's code and other ponderings… to download FileTreeView.
