    File types and size

    Hi guys

    Anyone know of a (free ideally) piece of software (like TreeSize, but not) that I can use to inspect the contents of servers hard drives?

    I am basically wanting to target users that appear to have a lot of files which potentially shouldnt be stored on the network.

    Our servers are going to be migrated and I want to take this opportunity to clear out a lot of 'personal' or ripped CDs type stuff from the network.

    Thanks

    We use WinDirStat to keep an eye on what's filling up our servers.

    I still love SequoiaView - you can colour code different file types, hovering over a file shows you its details and you can drill down to investigate.

    Having a screen like that up when people walk into your office is the ultimate in convincing people you're actually in the Matrix all day, working at a level so far beyond their ken that to talk to you would be sacrilege itself.

    I might have to get it just for that.
