Space Monger is still alive!

A good (I.T.) friend of mine reminded me of a utility from the past called SpaceMonger.

What is Space Monger? It’s a free tool that gives you a graphical picture of your entire disk, with larger files and folders easily identified. The nice thing is that Space Monger does not need to be installed. The executable can be run from a thumb drive!

Here are two screen snapshots from my drive:

You can download Space Monger from my web site. The zip file includes the free version 1.4 executable and the ReadMe file.

The trick to using it, I was told is:

  • Run it with elevated permission (Run as administrator)
  • Always open the folders, and not any applications from within it.

If you’re looking for something a bit fancier, but still free, check out WinDirStat!

  1. Thanks for keeping this online, Kevin! What a great tool. Although it’s been officially replaced by a fancier commercial version, this freeware is fine for many of us. Cheers, Ander
