FosiX Lite

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder FosiX Lite

FosiX Lite scans any drives or directories you select--including external drives attached to your PC. It then displays a bar chart or pie graph (you select which you'd like to see, and can easily switch between the two) that shows how the space is being used. At a glance, you can tell which folder is using the most space; clicking that entry in the chart lets you drill down for more information on exactly how that space is being allocated.

The program helps you identify places where you may be using a hefty amount of storage space, but it doesn't offer very much guidance about which files and folders you can safely delete. FosiX Lite does include links for cleaning up basic space-wasters, like temp files, shortcuts, and IE traces, though. If you're looking for information about your disk space, FosiX Lite is a great place to start.
