Great, yesterday I was searching for an analyser like this. I have Treesize pro, a great tool, and with that I managed to reduce the amount of files from 140.000 to 36,000.
You may think it is impossible, but it was possible :-)
What I wanted was to reduce the amount of files because I now have a new and better NAS.
And I never use the software they comes with it.
As you already know to move/copy one file that take up 4MB is faster than 1000 that take up the same space and so on.
So I first reduced the amount of files by remove exact duplicates that was quite a lot.
Then I started to look at my storage folders that’s divided into years.
Until yesterday I have always just put the files into the monthly folders, and among them are a lit og saved home pages with full content, it could be hundreds of files (I am both programmer, technician and homepage developer and more, and have been a IT Professional for 36 years) so my history files are quite a lot, so the history files was cleaned up, unnecessary projects was deleted, others (older) was compressed to one large file for every project, and that reduced the amount of files in a big way.
So yes “I did it” i managed to increase free space and at the same time reduce the amount of files form 140.000 to 36.000
But it would have been quite a lot easier if I had Xinorbis together with Treesize, Winzip and FreeFileSync
My 3 favourite tools.
Now I will check with Xinorbis.

Thanks for the info on this program. It’s a very good tool to have when you want to analyze your HD and want to see what’s going on. Very easy to use, has good features and options and all are useful with quite a lot of information and gives distribution of files which is very handy to know so thank you for reviewing Xinorbis Free Hard Disk. I see that Jensenjs reduced the amount of duplicates on his computer so I will look into that also. Great tool to have…..

Thank you for sharing your experience!
I used Windirstat so far, and didn`t find its best feature, its graphical disk image, no were else.
When I want to see my disk use, I never found anything better yet. https://windirstat.info
Regarding Windirstat`s special feature:
It shows the drive contents in a graphical image that has coloured squares.
Each square is a file. The size of the square represents the size of the file. The colour the type of file.
Above the image, you have the directory structure.
As soon as you select a directory, you will see the squares, related to the files in that directory selected as well.
You can click on a square in the image, and you will get the data on the specific file related to that square.
As easy as pie to find the biggest space-hogs this way.
thanks because i just got a blue screen in my windows 7 so i wanted an hard disk analyser
