    WinDirStat used to go by Sequoia, or they are very similar applications.

    I have been looking for a replacement on win7 for OverDisk, which I loved on XP and used all the time. I have tried DiskFan, which is ok, but not really as good. I have tried a few others too, but again, just not as good.

    Does anyone know of any others that might be worth looking into, for both the OP and myself?

    Sul.

    :thumb: Thanks for your reply on my question.I deleted my old restore system info and that brought my hard drive back to 26 gb.Then I used WinDirStat,to clean a lot of old files.Spacesniffer looks good but a bit to technical for me.

    Cheers , Jacko.

    I used to find icon files (ico) that grew to 25 1/2 GB, so when I get large fluctuations. I use "Tuneup Utility" it has a "Disk Space Explorer".
