Treemaping tools and filling HDDs

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. 😛 😛

Treemapping Software:

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? 😛
