Exclamation Need help clearing up hard drive space

I have a 20 gig HD and have seen that there is a big chunk of space used in my both my C and D drive. I cannot figure out what is using up all this space, can someone tell me how or know a program that can help me find out what is taking this space? Thanks in advance.

Well first all you have to do is go to your Control Panel and click ADD/REMOVE Programs. This will show you all the programs your running and will tell you the size of them on the right hand side.

Assuming your runing Windows.

go to my computer and right click on your hard drive and go to "properties" and then click the Disk Cleanup button. This will get all temp files, temporary internet files, etc.. it will probably free up alot of hdd space for you.
