3 Best & Free Windows 7 Disk Analyzer

Recently I received a mail from someone whose disk usage increased in Windows 7 by 20%. Now that’s totally unacceptable! One of the best ways to find out what’s taking up all the space is to use a disk analyzer. Windows 7 does not have a built-in disk analyzer, but there are many free tools that you can use to analyze your disk!

Oliver Krautscheid rates TreeSize Software 5 out of 5 stars - Some Pros and Cons:

The best free disk analyzer I know is TreeSize. I’ve been using the tool for a long time to analyze my disks and find all the large files that I have to take care of.

Immediately after starting, TreeSize Disk Analyzer will start to analyze your disk and list the large files and folders at the top:

It can take quite some time to analyze your disk, but scanning files always takes time and there aren’t really faster disk analyzer tools out there.

Another great disk analyzer is the built-in analyzer of GlaryUtilities. I previously reviewed Glary Utilities and it’s still one of the best choices for maintaining your system. You can read the full review of it here. It has so much more to offer than just a disk analyzer.

    Thanks so very much. I downloaded the Free Disk Analyzer by Extensoft. I was able to see the file that was taking up so much space on my hard drive. I deleted the file and have a huge amount of free space now on my hard drive. Thanks again for that wonderful information.
