Disk Inventory X

Disk Inventory X helps clear up space on your disk drive in an intuitive  way. After choosing a volume or a folder, it goes through all the files and constructs a cube for each file, the size of the cube reflecting the size of the file (see image left). Cubes are color-coded by filetype, and when selected the delete key can remove the file. It takes a while to analyse volumes so it's best either to do just the Users folder, or go and make a coffee while it creates the image. There are several commercial pieces of software like this, so a freeware one is a rare find.
