View Folders Taking Large Space In Windows 7 or Later Using Space Sniffer Disk Analyzer

by Rohit Khurana on September 14, 2011


Sometimes the free space on your computer gets filled up fast due to the data we store on it. But sometimes this may happen due to some other reasons also like a specific type of file taking more space than other, duplication of files and memory dump. But now I have got an application named SpaceSniffer for you.

The application will help you to analyze your hard disk and give you a visual treemap of all the contents that are present in the drive. The treemap is very useful for you in case you want to analyze the data to delete it to free some space for you or to move some of the data to some other location. The application except for giving you the treemap will also give you an insight into which type of files are taking the maximum amount of space. The software has many search options like type of files, how much old the file is and how much space it takes which will help you to analyze about your space distribution in a much better way.
