Some people think that a hard drive with hundreds of free gigabytes needs little in the way of management. There's no need, they say - you're not going to run out of space for a very long time.
While they have a point, the reality is that hard drive clutter has a very real effect on your PC, no matter how much space you've got free. The more files you have, the longer it takes to search your hard drive, to defragment it, and to scan for viruses, for instance. Even navigating around in Explorer takes longer as the program has more work to do.
It pays to keep a careful eye on where your hard drive space has gone, then, and TreeSize Free is just the tool to help. Right-click a folder in Explorer, click TreeSize Free, and the program will open and display a list of all yourTreeSize Free is the sort of freeware we like a lot, something that adds a really useful feature that's unobtrusive when you don't need it and a right-click away when you do. It's great for getting an accurate view of just where all the trees are in your forest.
