Five Best Hard Drive Space Analysers

Five Best Hard Drive Space Analysers

The dreaded moment has come and you can’t download a movie you want to watch, or install some games you want to play because your hard drive is full. What’s worse, you have no idea what to delete to make some room. Thankfully there are several apps you can turn to that will give you a good idea what’s using all of your drive space. Here are the top five, based on your nominations.

SpacesSiffer (Windows)

Space Monger (Windows)

TreeSize (Windows)

DaisyDisk (Mac)

WinDirStat (Windows)

Honourable mentions this week go out to DiskSpace Fan for Windows, a utility we’ve mentioned before which offers a similar fan-view of your drives and their contents as DaisyDisk does on the Mac. Another honourable mention goes out to Disk Inventory X on the Mac, which is completely free and inspired by WinDirStat.

Have something to say about the contenders that we missed, or did you favourite utility not make the top five? Sound off in the comments below.
