Spring Clean your Hard Drive

How many times have you heard someone say, "I'm a picture guy." The fact is, it is much easier for our brains to derive logical conclusions from shapes and colors than it is from numbers. So if your hard drive is pining for some free space, check out SequoiaView from The Netherlands. It lets you see the files on your disk represented by squares proportional to the file size so you can immediately focus on the mega-megabyte hogs. It also color-codes the squares so you can see what kind of files have a monopoly on your platters.

SequoiaView was developed by the computer science division of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven and you can download and use it totally free.
