SpaceMonger PC drive management tool

SpaceMonger is a tool for keeping track of the free space on your PC. Each file or folder on a given drive is displayed in a box in the main window whose size is a relative comparison to all the other files in your system. So, for example, if the "Windows" box takes up 90% of the screen, the "C:\Windows" folder and all its sub-folders and files are taking up 90% of your "C:" drive. You can zoom in and out - viewing inside a folder in more detail. It works on network drives and is extremely useful for working out what is chewing up drive space.

There is no install required - you just run spacemonger.exe and open a drive with it. Easy.

The old version is free. There is a newer commercial version which is probably better.
