Default Hard Drive clean-up

So my hard drive has almost no free space left on it but I've checked and checked and can't figure what is taking up so much space. Are there any programs that can measure up how much space is being taken up where? I mean I could go through it I suppose but it would take hours. My hard drive is really badly organized.

With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke.........It's not a laughing matter. You can break the Internet.

You could also try CCleaner - Home and see if that gets you enough free space.

O_O that was fast....

I'll look into both of those thanks.

I'm annoyed TreeSize can't just scan my WHOLE computer. Still its helpful.

Wow thanks a lot to both of you. Between the two programs I deleted a ton of stuff I didn't need. I had 4GB out of 80gb left. Now I have 20gb left ^_^.
