Finding out what directories are using the most space on windows [duplicate]

Hi, I have about 2 terabytes of total space spread over several drives.. While I still have 500 GB free which should last quite a while I want to do some cleanup.

"WinDirStat was made for this task!

It'll show you exactly where your space is going."

I like SpaceSniffer. Small, fast, and doesn't require an install.

"I used to use Sequoia but started to find the look a bit dated, and it was flaky (especially if cancelled).
Now prefer Spacesniffer, really intuitive to zoom in an a folder, zoom in again and so on, and be able to use back button to zoom back out to previous screen. Seems fairly quick too."

For viewing disk usage I prefer Steffen Gerlach's Scanner, for its innovative and visual pie display, and where each pie can be accessed by using click drilling and right-click menu.
