Keep an eye on your disk space with Scanner

runs on Windows

How much stuff is on your hard drive? How much empty space is left over? While it's easy to run directory listings to get answers to these questions, the answers don't always make a lot of sense. After all, it's pretty much just a pile of numbers. If you could look at your disk consumption graphically, it might make more sense.

Scanner is a tool that lets you do just that. Point it at your hard drive, removable device, or network volume and take a look at the pretty pictures. Using a sunburst chart—an extended pie chart with concentric rings—this app will show you the relative sizes of all major directories and files on your system. Interested in an individual one? Click on it and get information specific to your selection.

Scanner is a free Windows application.
