    Does anyone know of any freeware utilities that would help me locate LARGE files on my hard drive?

    I have so many folders and subfolders and I want to start cleaning up... It would ve very helpful to see where the largest files are, taking up the most space.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you :)

    Disk Inventory X. Gives you a nice graphical view of your whole disk and what's taking up space. And it's free.

    No, not that I'm aware of anyway. I'm not searching for any specific file names or types. I just want ALL the largest files on my hard drive. In addition, they could be in numerous folders/sub-folders.

    Can spotlight do this? If so I'd love to know how. Otherwise, I know of two Windows utilities that do this, but none for Mac. :(

    No problem. I used it last month to clean off my disk. Works like a charm.
