Need Free Space is a comprehensive set of tools which helps you to control and manage your disk space, while also gathering free space. With Need Free Space you can find and remove duplicate files, temporary files, unneeded or junk files, old files, zero-size files and empty folders.
Number of options allows you to customize your search. You can exclude some directories from the search (for example, system directories), you can find duplicate files more effectively by excluding from the search small or large files, duplicate files with specified attributes (system, hidden, read-only). To search for temporay and junk files you can also add your own wildcards.
With the Analyze tool you can find out which folders and files are the largest on your drives with only a glance and a few clicks. One of the options of the Analyze tool is to group all files on selected hard drives or folders by the file type, which allows you to see how much space is used by each file type (MP3, AVI, EXE, ZIP, etc.).
The integrated Uninstaller will list for you the applications installed on your computer, system components, system hotfixes and broken uninstall entries. Uninstaller calculates the estimated size (if possible) for installed applications and shows you the total amount of drive space used by installed applications.
Disk Information displays free and used disk space in real time and shows additional information about your hard drives like file system, label, drive type, number of sectors, clusters, minimal file size.
