WinDirStat - Fromrum Friday

Hello All! ^_^
From one of my most trustworthy, and favourite forums, here I bring to you all, WinDirStat, a free and Open-Source System Management Software.

Directly from the Article of CNET, "At purchase, you probably thought your 250GB hard drive would suffice, but heavy use and months later, you get a "low disk space" alert. Unfortunately, it's much easier to fill up your hard drive than it is to clean it. With so many folders and directories, how do you pinpoint what's taking up space? "

Quite right, isn't it? We thought we have just 60 GB data, so that 250 GB would be more than enough. But when we had that, the things we wanted to keep stored in our PC kept on increasing! Now, out of the tonnes of files loaded on our PCs, it sometimes becomes a bit difficult to find out which ones to delete, now here is when these Software come to our help.

WinDirStat is one such, open source software for Windows.

Though I don't copy posts as you know, but I guess, in these Fromrum Topic, I would have to do it. Because, if I would explain things in my own language, then it could be sometimes taken in a different manner... So would directly copy the instructions of using the software:
  1. Download and install WinDirStat. Go with the recommended installation.
  2. Launch WinDirStat and select the drive you want to evaluate. Click "OK," and give the program 5 to 10 minutes to scan your hard disk.
  3. When the scan is complete, you'll be presented with the summary screen. The top half lists files and folders sorted by file size. If you click on a folder or file, the corresponding color block will be highlighted below.
  4. Alternatively, click the large blocks of color to find out which files are taking the most space.
  5. Once you've identified the culprit, right-click the file and choose "Delete (to Recycle Bin)" for later disposal, or "Delete (no way to undelete)" for permanent, irreversible deletion.
