    Using XP Home edition, I have 2 hard drives, the one which came with the pc is a 40GB but I am seeing only 3GB of free space left and since I have always been experiemnting with both music and video files I am guessing that I mahve forgotten to delte some large files somewhere on the C drive, is there a way I can get to view which folders on the C drive are the largest so I can narrow this down or do I have to go look at the size of every folder one by one?

    Hey Bluerinse, how can I place an icon or shortcut to that program on the desktop? I don't see an icon anywhere, only the exe? I had seen a "quick launch" icon upon installing but I never place any item down there to cluster up the taskbar.

    There are various ways of doing this, so for simplicity sake I will just cover one.

    Right click on the desktop and chose new shortcut. Then browse to C:\Program files\Jam software\TreeSize and click on the executable file treesize.exe and click next and type a name for your new shortcut like TreeSize and then finish - Bob's ur uncle :biggrin
