Thanks for Sequoia View, heard about that and been trying to find it for a bit. Kinda depressing seeing far cry in 3000 different places, and seeing programs I don't recall ever installing taking appalingly large chunks of space, but big thanks bro.

I use SpaceMonger. Much better interface IMO. It shows you the files/folder names as well as size, right on the display (instead of a bunch of empty grey blocks). You can also right-click > delete and other useful things.

It's not freeware though I'm afraid, but there is a free trial at http://www.sixty-five.cc/sm/

Wizmo

This program is so cool! It adds a lot of uncommon but cool features (mostly related to screensavers, power saving and desktop management) to windows and works from a shortcut command line interface. It doesnt even need to install. You just stick the .exe somewhere, make a shortcut to it and then edit the target field by adding some commands.

For example, I added a shortcut that goes to ["C:\Program Files\wizmo\wizmo.exe" -monoff] and when I click it, it makes my monitor go into standby mode. When I move the mouse it comes right back on. The program isnt sitting in memory, it just executes a command and then closes.

So freaking cool!

You can even set the "shake" sensitivity of the mouse so the computer doesnt accidently leave power save mode if something makes the mouse move a little (like bumping into your desk).

Kind of, but some Mods have more power than others as far as Locking, Deleting, etc. I can only do so in the FS/T Forums and not anywhere else. Clay, as far as I know, can do that anywhere on here. Too bad I can't do that in the Open Forums, then I could spam without that stupid 30 second timer thing. Damnit!

Reminds me of the old Roman/Greek/Norse fables where the Gods are at odds with each other over power etc

So MikeC is Zeus? You are more of a Hercules or Achilles?

Wow, there are so many useful software. I'd like to use IrfanView. It is a good image editor.

This little app is just silly good. It may seem overly simple at first, just sit back and think about it...this thing is a must have.

This isn't limited to forums or IM clients. If you do any kind of software development you'll immediately see the value in this.
