    I want to know if there is a program out that that shows your hard drive and all the files on the hard drive via size of the files/folders.

    now i am a noob so i don't know if there is a way in xp to sort folders "by the size of their content" but i can't seem to find away to do so.

    is just want to clean up my hard drive and i don't want to go folder by folder clicking on them and seeing what its total size on the HD is. i just want a program that list of all the folders i have on my HD, and sorts them by the size of their content.

    thanks for any help.

    I use a freeware program called xplorer2 lite instead of Windows Explorer built into XP. It has an option to show the subfolder size and you can sort by the results. It only shows this information for the directory that you're in, but it updates as you drill down your directory tree. It also allows you to have two panes to show two locations so you can easily move/copy files around.
