I love the way WinDirStat displays usage graphically. But FreeFileSync also shows disk usage if you enter a path and click compare. I find I don't really need both.

I came here to find an alternative of the nice GNOME Disk Usage Analyzer (Baobab) for Windows systems. WinDirStat is open source but it's a million times more messy than SpaceSniffer.

SpaceSniffer is portable, and it shows the folders where the files are in the graph! It's simpler to use and visualize your disk in the way you organized it: in folders. You can visually explore your disk with single or double-clicking the folders.

Looks like the same thing but not open source. I'd stay away.

Without a competent open source alternative SpaceSniffer will be my option. I've been using it for a long time without issues.

I like it because it helps me find unnecessary files or folders using a lot of memory
