    I'm not sure what you mean by finding free space. Normally all you have to do is look at the properties of a selected drive to see the free space.

    I don't know if it's the best, but if you want to see how space is being occupied and you don't want to install anything, then I would give ShowMan a try. You can quickly traverse the directories to see where the space hogs are.

    Space Sniffer:
    -http://www.uderzo.it/main_products/space_sniffer/index.html-

    its the best of the free ones ive found so far.
    and its fast.
    it does not install anything so that is a big plus.

    No, as I don't use this OS, but I can confirm Overdisk working on 64bit XP. For what it's worth...

    WinDirStat works fine on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

    Overdisk was my favorite on XP, by leaps and bounds. I haven't tried it on 7 yet I don't think. Or maybe I did and it did not work :doubt:

    There's an older one that I really like called Sequoiaview. After you run it enable color schemes. I've tried WinDirStat and Space Sniffer, and I keep coming back to Sequoiaview for a quick and dirty look at what's hogging the disk.
