Have you ever checked to see how much storage space you have on your computer? Maybe you want to figure out why your computer is running so slow.

On Windows 10, you just click on Settings (icon looks like a sprocket), then System, then Storage to see how much free space you've got. (On older versions of Windows, go to Start >> Computer.) If you're low on space, you search your hard drive to see if there are folders or files you can delete.

With TreeSize, you see the folders and files taking up a lot of storage space. When you find those, decide if you can delete some of them, to free up space.

It's simple to use. You highlight a directory, like C:\, for it to analyze. (See photo.) TreeSize shows you how large each folder in that directory is, and other information, like when it was last modified. To see specific files, and to see how much space they're taking up, just click on a folder.
