I dont know what is going on but my disk space seems to be going down and i am not downloading anything. What app can i use on windows to keep track of diskspace? I used windirstat which tells you how much data a folder is holding but i still cant figure out the problem.

I did notice a folder holding 1.7gb for visual studio's intellitrack (or whatever that thing is called)

-edit- Today i found it has taken up 7gb (weird, after deleting i only have 4gb and i can see in windirstat that it says 7gb). My HDD actually hit 0bytes left on the C drive.

What exactly do you want to know about your disk space, other than what folders are using it up? – David Z Jun 9 '10 at 23:37
It's InteliSense, not IntelliTrack :) – squircle Jun 10 '10 at 0:02
You might gain some insight by running ccleaner, and just having it analyze, not clean. It's possible that temporary files, internet cache, etc. are taking up quite a bit of space. – nhinkle Jun 10 '10 at 3:11
IntelliTrace helps debugging (not sure exactly how). IntelliSense is an auto-completer for names (classes, namespaces, methods, properties). – Hello71 Jul 9 '10 at 21:23

I would highly advise using WinDirStat. It gives a visual and statistical overview of which files are taking up space. Large files are shown as larger blocks, and they are color coded by file type. It also tells you what percentage of the hard drive space each directory is taking up. Very useful, and free, too!

Space Sniffer has won awards, and I love it, after trying WinDirStat and some other big ones...My favorite thing about it, is that it constantly refreshes, so when I delete something, it updates the display right away...

Overdisk is in radial graph form, and I have used this one, works well.
