Program that details hard drive space used?

Is there a program available that would give me a breakdown of exactly how much space is used on my hard drive and where it's at? My ex-wife has cluttered the hell out of my computer to the point where finding everything to delete is a task in itself...this would make it a lot easier.

I'm assuming it's a Windows computer, in which case WinDirStat works wonderfully:

They suggest alternatives for Mac or Linux PCs.

I assume your ex already has copies of any files she wants to keep?

Maybe ZTreeWin would be useful for you. I have used it for 25 years and practically could not live without it. It's also SO useful for backup purposes because it can easily show the attributes of every file on your computer - therefore, if you turn off the archive bit on all of your files when first starting to use ZTreeWin, then at the end of every day you can easily identify which files have been changed by just viewing all of the files which have the archive attribute turned back on.
Read more about it at: http://www.ztree.com/html/ztreewin.htm
