Treemapping is a method for displaying tree-structured data by using nested rectangles.
Or, that is the academic way to explain it.
The simple way?
Treemapping is when you see the contents of your hard drive in a nice visual way, in order to see what you are wasting space on.
TreeSize Free I’ve used this, it’s good but nothing visual.
SpaceMonger This is what I have at the moment, I like it It gives you a nice idea of things
DiskView I haven’t used, plus it only has a 15-day trial period.
I bought a 1Tb hard drive in July 2009, and… well … I must say it’s full already. O_O (18,4 Gb free out of 931Gb)
I know, I know. Well, what can I say? I am notorious for such things.
But, I have an excuse! Yes indeedy I do!
This is what SpaceMonger tells me: (Warning: The following may be boring for some )
233,9 Gb is backup from my older HDD. Some things are quite sensitive and precious, so I want to have as many backups as possible.
222.3 Gb is backup from M’s laptop. He had to format it, so everything was transferred to me, but I haven’t deleted anything yet. You never know what might be needed!
82,9 Gb is anime that I recently acquired from P.
80,2 Gb is memories … pictures, videos etc.
57,1 Gb is the rapidshare folder, aka some Lost episodes in HD quality. My laptop doesn’t even support HD quality! Damn, I should delete them.
44,7 Gb is Tv series folder, aka Lost.
23,5 Gb is movies…
I hope they don’t put me into jail for this info
33,3 Gb is more backup from another older laptop…
And some more smaller folders with smaller capacities…
Which means! More than half of the hard drive is used for backup So I guess it’s put to good use, ne?
What about yours? I am curious to know!
P.S. Any ideas for a better title?
