It's been a while since I wrote here about TreeSize, so it's about time I covered the latest version of the program.
TreeSize is a fantastic program which shows you the sizes of all the folders on your computer's disk. Choose any drive or folder, then drill down through them in order to find out which folders are taking the most space. It's a simple, quick way to work out why your computer is running out of space, and it's also useful for tracking down folders that are no longer needed and which can thus be deleted.
It's always good to clear out your disk regularly. Windows doesn't like running on almost-full drives. And if you're in the habit of doing regular backups, clearing out unwanted files will reduce the time that your backups take to complete. And it'll reduce the size of your backups too, which could save you money if you use a cloud-based service.
You'll find a free version of TreeSize at https://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free and it's a 6 MB download. The file is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.
