    Looking for something like WinDirStat
    With Duplicate scanning removal the most important function..

    I used DiskInventoryX in the past but it now just crashes.
    Preferably at the cost of the above. ie: Free. :)

    thanks

    DiskInventoryX shouldn't be crashing. But it does take a long time to start if you have many files. You can speed it up by selecting only your home folder to display.

    I must agree with the other thread. If you want to find (and eliminate) duplicate files, Gemini is the way to go, even though it costs $$$.

    fixed sort of.

    Figured out that DiskInventory X, auto update caused the problem so I deleted the previous install and downloaded the universal beta. Seemed to work ok.

    thanks
