Name that alternative file viewer
August 24, 2008 4:01 PM   Subscribe

A few years ago I came across an alternative to Windows Explorer that let you browse the contents of your drives by disk space used. The display was a kind of Mondrian grid, with the files and folders taking up the most disk space having the largest area on the display. Can anyone point me to this utility (or something similar)?

I think you are talking about a "treemap" view - here is a free "TreeMap Explorer".

Yay! WinDirStat is exactly the tool I was thinking of. I will definitely look at the others as well. Thanks so much!
