Space Hogs - Win95

By uncledarth@worldnet.att. ·
How or where do I find exactly the amount of space EACH program is using. I know how to reformat but would rather not.

You can right click on any file or folder and hit the properties button and it will tell you the size of a file or the size of a folder. Also at the bottom of the explorer window it will tell you how big a file is. You can also use winfile.exe whichyou will find in your windows directory. Windows itself is usually a big space hog. :)

I agree with stephen. You can also highlight a group of folders then right click and go into properties.

You can also use a program called Treesize. The advantage here is that it can show you: the amount of space contained in the files, the amount of actual disk space being used by those files (which includes the space being wasted by partially filled disk clusters), the amount of space the files would take up with a different cluster size (ie-how much space it would take on a CD, how much space it would take if you set a different cluster size (by going to FAT-32, for instance). The beauty of this program is that, unlike Right-Click | Properties, it shows not only the total space of the folder and any sub-folders it may contain, but also the space being taken up be each of the individual folders. The basic program is free, the professional version is $30 and adds some graphing and reporting features. You can get more info at http://www.jam-software.com/treesize.html

I would goto the Ontrack website and get PowerDesk. One Program (free full 30 day trial) gives the ability to check all your drives or all folders on a drive ofr space usage with 2 clicks. The program will do everything Explorer, treespace, most zip managers, most ftp lite programs, and a feww other handy things.

For day to day operations in maintaining my network it is indespensible.

From your description, I guess you are trying to find more space for your new programs; but don't know which older programs are giving too much space.

If it is your problem, I suggest you to use Norton Uninstall (In the Norton System Works). It can find all the associated files and removed the unwanted registry if you decide to remove the selected program.

Besides, one more hint:
if you are using win98 and using IE and communicator; then you can remove the IE and get more space and more stable and faster win98.
download this file and follows the instruction in the readme.txt.
