SpaceSniffer - Find out where the hell your drive space has gone

The app sounds like the project idea of a recently fired NASA employee, but it's really a simple, effective way to discover and visualize what's taking up room on your hard drive. From the website:

# Fast and easy to use
# Intuitive structure layout, multiple views for different media
# Zoomable elements, navigate like web browser
# Smart cached scanning engine, multiple views, single scan
# You can navigate the structure even during the scan
# You can refine a zoomed area by a secondary scan process, even with main scan
# The Windows folders and file popup menu is accessible by right mouse click
# It's possible to restrict the view content by typing simple yet powerful filtering criteria
# Different views of the same media can show differently filtered elements
# Reacts to the file system events, keeps always in synch, warns you by blinking elements
# Can scan NTFS Alternate Data Streams
# Customizable in geometry, colors, behaviors
# It doesn't clutter your registry, only a plain XML configuration file
# No installation required, just put the executable somewhere and let's go
