Disk usage reporting?
Is there a way to find out which files and directories are occupying the most
space on a drive in Vista?

Thanks.

Hello hotmailuser,
Start menu > Computer > highlight the drive you want to see, right
click, click Open.
You will see how many bytes used on each app. program. As to the
file/folders listed in the drive window, highlight each one, right
click, click Properties, you'll see how many bytes it occupies in the
disk.

WinDirStat shows where disk space is being used including a graphical display.

Just let the mouse pointer hover over the coloured areas to identify
different file types, here http://windirstat.info/
