I ran out of disk space in one of my hard drives few days back. As that particular hard disk was of 1TB ( ya you heard it right, it was of 1TB ) – I decided to make some free space by deleting some unwanted files. Now if you are a bit disorganized like me , you can easily understand my predicament of finding stuff that can be deleted.
In such cases, I have found a visual representation of hard disk space showing which folders occupy how much space, helps you to narrow down the files that can be deleted. I quickly researched about free software that can help me with this task and lo behold found this nifty little app called Space Sniffer. This software is just 1.5MB. Yes you heard it right – just 1.5MB and is completely freeware.
Don’t underestimate the size of this software as this little piece of software can quickly give you a visual representation of your individual hard drive or a particular folder . What’s more you can make use of nifty little filters like < x months, file size > mb etc. to narrow down your search further.
So next time if you run into “space problems” in your software, you know which software to use.
