WinDirStat.

It’s an old program, but it works fine on Win7, and it gives a simple, boxy view of your HDD usage.  I’ve been turning to it for a long time to help me understand my biggest offenders in the HDD-size wars.  I’ve never really been a guy who just adds more storage as I fill mine up, probably because by the time I fill my workstation HDD with stuff, it’s time to get a new computer.  It definitely helps that I have like 2ish TB in my WHS in the closet, although that’s really only doing a few hundred GB of music and movies at the moment, but that’s okay.

If I start doing more video editing eventually, that’ll take up some space (as the new HDD rips for Choice Investigations take up like 21GB), but even that will likely be just SD video most of the time.  I do want to shoot a Sizzle Reel for a reality project, but I’ll need a camera for a week and quite a few interviews to make that happen. And I know me….
Moral of the story: I’ll probably be a long time filling up the 600GB I have available to me at the moment.  The computer will likely be irrelevant before it’s time to add more storage.

Anyway, happy Tuesday.
