JDiskReport 1.4.1
Where's all your hard drive space gone? JDiskReport will let you know

JDiskReport is an excellent free Java tool which will scan your hard drive and provide a host of useful information about how its space is being used.

This all starts by pointing the program at the folder tree you'd like it to examine, and it then spends a moment analysing your files (and only a moment, really - it's quite speedy, considering what the program has to do).

Then you see the basic report, which shows you an Explorer-type view of your folders on the left, and a pie chart on the right revealing how much each one is taking up. So immediately we could see that, for instance, the Users folder was gobbling up the most hard drive space on our test system, at 69.1GB.

Why? Clicking any folder on the pie chart allows you to drill down, and in a click or two we found that the main culprit was a VirtualBox virtual machine setup, which required 30.1GB all on its own. You'll have your own space hogs, of course, but JDiskReport should still expose them in just a few seconds.

The program does offer alternative views on your files, though. Clicking "Top 50" reveals the 50 largest files in the tree you're examining, for instance. While selecting "Types" shows you which file types are consuming the most space.

And a range of useful configuration options allow you to do everything from excluding particular folders from the report, to defining precisely how you'd like the charts to look.

Please note, JDiskReport is a Java-based tool, so you'll need Java installed before it will work.

Verdict:

JDisk is an easy-to-use and highly configurable tool which provides a host of useful details on exactly how your hard drive space is being used

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
