    Hello all!
    I know I should know this...I've been working with computers long enough. But I'm having a blank out moment.

    One of my 250 Gb drives is showing all by 20 gigs full. I'm trying to see what could be taking up so much room on it. I'm looking around and I just don't see that much since most of my main data files are on a separate 250 gig drive. Is there an app I can use, or some way to analyze what's taking up so much room on my drive? I know there is, but I just can't remember how to do that?

    Thanks so much!

    Bruce

    Bruce, you cannot see what is on the drive with File Explorer or through Disk Management...:confused:

    Hi!
    Yeah, I can see the files and nothing seems out of the ordinary. Tht's why I wanted to try and run some kind of analyzer, or...something to show me what was taking up so much room.

    I don't know about a file analyzer, but for finding where the majority of space is being used Tree Size Free will probably help.
