Need to find out what is taking up so much of my hd space.

Hello. Haven't posted much here lately but I have a question. I have a 250 gig harddrive and it's down to 8 gigs left. I'd like to know what exactly is chewing all of that up. A while ago I had an app that visually showed what was on my drive in the form of different sized blocks. I deleted it for some reason. Can anyone tell me what app that is? Thank you!

There are probably many, but I've used these two before:

I use DiskWave, and it's free.
