WinDirStat is a great hard drive usage visualization tool that helps you identify and clean hard drive space issues. If you are running low on disk space or just want a cleaner system, this tool will provide a visual of what is hogging up your precious space.
With the high cost of high-capacity Solid State Drives (SSD), SSD users must keep a close eye on their limited drive space. WinDirStat will help keep your SSD under control.
WinDirStat will help you identify some of the typical culprits:
- Program and internet temporary (temp) files
- Cloud-based programs leaving huge local cache files
- Bloatware and malware
- Unnecessary programs that can be uninstalled
- Duplicate files
- Old files / photos / videos / PST files that can safely be moved to an external drive
- Old System Restore files
- Hibernation files (hint: disable Hibernation unless you must have this feature)
