Ample Blaze has decided to write up articles of any software that can be helpful to any of our users.
A few months ago we posted about keep your computer clean with Malware scans Anti-virus scans etc. You can find this article here ==> Ample Blaze PC Clean Up Guide This months featured software is Tree Size. Now this software has a free version and a paid version. The free version does what you want anyway mostly you just want to search. Tree-size free will do a search like the above image and then it will show you the top level folders and it will be organised based on folder size, showing you the biggest folder on the top and then it has a little arrow that you can expand and go through to the sub-folder that can be taking up the most space.
The beauty of this program not only is it free but you can also right click on any folder level and open the folder within windows and you can jump to that location.
The user then can manage and modify what they want within the jumped folder.
However, the sub-folders can be hidden windows system folders that you may want to contact your IT person to make sure what you are removing will not effect your computer
Just my two cents on what I think can be a helpful little tool.
