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? 😛
