I'm using windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, and have had success with Tree File size, but I'm looking for a way to scan the hard drive and list the largest files, not necessarily the folder sizes, but by individual files in whatever folder they might be in.

Is there a program out there like this?

I'd take a look at SequoiaView. It does a graphical display of the files for you. I like it because it's fast and free.

  • @Potter: Your recommendation is a trojan containing software :( Here is the report scanned from virustotal.com virustotal.com/file-scan/…

  • 1. I've never heard of Virus Total. 2. I've scanned the file and installation folder with Microsoft Security Essentials and I can't see any Trojan. 3. You're the only one claiming this is an infection in the 8 years it has been available. 4. I looked at what the Trojan is supposed to infect, and I can't find any trace of it in my Windows folder or registry.

  • Also, the "infection" was flagged by Jiangmin AV, which I've never heard of. All the other major AV vendors showed nothing in your URL.

Check out WinDirStat (scroll for download link).

Alternatively, get it from Download.com, if you're more comfortable.

    ...or, as Randolph Potter mentioned, check out SequoiaView. Jul 1, 2010 at 0:38

In addition to SequoiaView, I would suggest checking out JDiskReport. It does the same thing, but in pie-chart format. It is freeware. And, since it's a java app, it can run on any OS that has a JVM.

I hope this helps.

  • Never heard of JDiskReport. I'm going to give it a spin!

  • I've used it but I found I liked WinDirStat better. It's sort of a personal preference, though - both are perfectly functional programs (and not bad-looking either).
