If you’ve been following any of the pre-launch buzz surrounding this release or have tried your hand at either the consumer or developer preview, you will know that it’s the largest interface overhaul that Microsoft has ever made to its operating system.

Since the inception of hard drives, manufactures are pioneering ways to pack in more gigabytes into them than you could imagine. As a result, hard drives boasting 1 terabyte of space have become quite common and should be pretty much enough to store most of your digital content. Windows doesn’t contain a native utility that quickly tells you about the amount of space each file and folder is occupying on the disk. On the flip side of the coin though, you can use a variety of third-party tools that suffice for the job. One such solution that I recently came across is WizTree.

The tool uses MFT (Master File Table – the NTFS index about what a drive contains), completing the scanning process within a few seconds.
