Treemaping tools and filling HDDs

Treemapping is a method for displaying tree-structured data by using nested rectangles.ο»Ώ

Or, that is the academic way to explain it. πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

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 πŸ™‚ It gives you a nice idea of things πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜› O_O (18,4 Gb free out of 931Gb)

I know, I know. Well, what can I say? πŸ˜› I am notorious for such things. πŸ˜€

But, I have an excuse! Yes indeedy I do!

This is what SpaceMonger tells me:Β Β Β  (Warning: The following may be boring for some πŸ˜› )

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. πŸ˜› 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! πŸ˜›

82,9 Gb is anime that I recently acquired from P. πŸ˜€

80,2Β  Gb is memories … pictures, videos etc.

57,1 Gb is the rapidshare folder, aka some Lost episodes in HD quality. πŸ˜› My laptop doesn’t even support HD quality! Damn, I should delete them.

44,7 Gb is Tv series folder, aka Lost. πŸ˜€

23,5 Gb is movies…

I hope they don’t put me into jail for this info πŸ˜›

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 backupΒ  πŸ˜€ So I guess it’s put to good use, ne? πŸ˜€

What about yours? I am curious to know! πŸ˜€

P.S. Any ideas for a better title? πŸ˜›
