    What I'm looking for is a program that will show what is on my drive and the size of the data. I would like to be able to check to see if there is a program or log that is growing with out me knowing.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for. Wouldn't Explorer fit the bill?

    In any case Tune-Up 2007 shows file type, disk space...

    I am looking for something that would give a detail list of what is on the disk and the size. At one time I had a program that had a log that got huge. I could tell when I did a virus scan because it would take so long scanning that file. Had I not been watching the scan I wouldn't have known.

    If you're looking for something free try Windirstat at http://windirstat.info/
    Otherwise, Ace Utilities or Tune-up 2007.

    Can't remember anything that produces a running log of file/folder growth but a nice, tiny little freebie called OverDisk is quite nice and helpful. Let's you visually see the size of folders/files and makes drilling down to see the details very simple.

    Thank you guys for the help. Overdisk is what I am trying. It takes a little searching but it seems like it will show you very detailed info as to what is there.

    I find Sequoiaview quite handy. It will show you every file and
    its name and relative size.

    You can configure it to show in color, and up or down
    directory levels, and the contents of multiple drives & partitions.
    Works fine on XP

    Really do like Overdisk. It is a fine little program.
