    This seems such a simple thing to ask that I think I must be missing something. My C drive is nearly full. I look at it in explorer and see the size of the files in the root dir., but then there's all the folders. You can't see how much space each folder takes up without right clicking on each and looking at properties.

    You then have to open each folder and subfolder individually to see where the space has been used.

    Isn't there a simple way of just ordering or listing all the drive's files by size (incl those hidden away in the subfolders) to see where the space is being used most?

    Using Start/Find, click Advanced tab and
    in type: select 'all files/folders'
    in Size is: select 'at least', then select 1KB

    this should list all folders/files...
    then under View, select Arrange Icons by Size
