I've had really good luck with windirstat, if you're on Windows of course.

You can use utilities such as KDirStat (Linux/KDE) to visualize where your free space went.
WinDirStat is a similar tool for Windows.
Disk Inventory X is for Mac OS X.

For windows- have a look at getfoldersize - it doesn't graph but it does sort by usage and allows you to drill down and find high usage sub directories etc.

If you're using a *nix environment it's quick to just use
du -sh /dir to find offensively sized directories. It's somewhat crude, but quick and effective.
