    Hi, can anyone tell me the name of a pc program...

    That tells you all the files on your pc? I'm struggling for space on my laptop and saw someone mention a program that tells you were all the large files are on your pc, but of course can't for the life of me remember what it was called.

    Any ideas?

    [FONT=Verdana]You don't need a license to buy it but it will start prompting you to buy a license after a month...still a very good tool to use though, as it has quite a lot of features.

    Thanks, have installed it, just looking about, was wondering what all the wasted space means? and how the program decides what's wasted and what isn't?

    Repped for your help btw

    [FONT=Verdana]Here you go mate, straight from the FAQ on the vendor's website (a bit technical but explains it a bit better for you).

    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma]The wasted space is the amount of space in clusters on your hard disk that are not entirely filled. Keep the following formula in mind: size + wasted space = allocated space. Windows 9x with its file system FAT32 may have very large cluster sizes, depending on the partition size.
    [/FONT] [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]FAT32[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]Partition Size[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]Default Cluster Size[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]01 - 08 GB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]4 KB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]08 - 16 GB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]8 KB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]16 - 32 GB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]16 KB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]>32 GB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [CENTER][FONT=Tahoma]32 KB[/FONT][/CENTER]
    [FONT=Tahoma]If you have for example a single FAT32 partition on a 32GB hard disk, you have a cluster size of 32KB on it. If you store 10 files of 1 KB on this partition, this would use 10*32KB=320KB of your hard disk space, and 320KB - 10KB = 310KB would be wasted. Especially a huge number of small files significantly increases the amount of wasted space on FAT partitions.
    [/FONT] [FONT=Tahoma]To reduce the wasted space, there are the following possibilities:[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma]

    * Avoid using the FAT32 file system on partitions larger than 16GB.[FONT=Tahoma]

    * W[/FONT]indows 2000 and later versions provide the possibility to format your hard disk with the ]NTFS file system. It usually operates with 512 - 4096 Byte clusters and has the best storage efficiency of all Windows file systems. Furthermore NTFS is able to ]compress[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma] selected directory branches. NTFS partitions cannot be accessed from Windows 9x or DOS without use of 3rd party software. [/FONT]

    use treesize FREE versionhttp://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml



    [FONT=Verdana]Good option but is limited when compared to the TreeSize Professional utility and it's my impression that the demo version will be removed from his computer once he's finished up (but could be wrong).
