WinDirStat | My Software Toolbox

No matter how large your hard drive is, the data will grow to fill the disk!

Recently I was running out of space on both of my internal 120Gig and external 320Gig HDD. I don’t have any clue on what to delete I have tried CCleaner to delete the history to save some space.

I downloaded a beautiful app called WinDirStat. A picture is worth a thousand words.


WinDirStat (WDS) is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for Windows. It shows disk, file and directory sizes in a treelist as well as graphically in a treemap.


It helps you to identify the files by it size and you will be surprised. Based on your need you can free the space.


  1. Directory Report is another useful tool for showing folder sizes
    No confusing colored blocks
