    I had a program that showed me where my hard disk space was being used up, it showed the data in squares with different colours to distinguish between folders, it also displayed the path so you could delete any unwanted data in it. It was included on a PC Gamer UK demo disc about 2 years ago, I think it was in the issue with the Dark Messiah: might and magic cover.
    I'm running low on HD space and would like to know what the name of program this is since I can no longer find the disk, otherwise could someone suggest an alternative peice of software?
    Thanks in advance

    I prefer space monger. The older versions from 2005 are better, but that is just my personal opinion. It is fast and light. Free too, if you are so inclined.

    O&O10 is quite an investment.

    Clicking on any of those blocks shows the list of files stored in them. As you can see, I need to defrag :)

    Wow, THAT is one cool look at your HD space. I downloaded it, analyzed and actually started to giggle like a school girl, LOL.

    Way cool, I agree.

    Edit: Honestly, it was game downloads, not p0rn!!! :)

    I haven't tried any of the programs listed other than Diskeeper Pro Premier, and I love it's automatic defragmentation. Although I guess vista does that anyways, but I'm on xp. That one fit posted looks pretty cool though.
