SpaceSniffer disk usage visualizer

Ever wondered what eats up your disk space? Discovered a nice simple tool which can answer that question. It’s called SpaceSniffer and it scans your disk (or a just folder if you want) and then creates a clean map of what takes up space.

They also have a YouTube video which shows both basic and some not so basic things you can do with it. Embedded it below, and I suggest you turn down the volume if you don’t like silly porn groove music 😛

One thing to note though: I recommend you run it with Administrator privileges. If you don’t, it won’t be able to scan certain system folders and such.
