After all these years without an update, it's STILL the best of them all.

nice app to find what to delete when you are running out of space.

Runs quick (faster than JDiskReport) and stable on Vista business 64 bit.
I think it is the best application compared with the alternatives, and it allows to examine network drives for free.
TreeSize Free can only examine local drives.

Context-menu entries for the "Windows Explorer" with “Fast Explorer”
With WinDirStat you have no context-menu entries in the "Windows Explorer" in the difference to jDiskReport (1).
One gets these entries rapidly and fast with "Fast Explorer” (2).
