Largest Files Finder is a free software program for Windows that lists the 100 largest files on a PC running Windows when run.
You have several options when you are running out of storage space. You could consider uninstalling software that you no longer need, run a temporary files cleaner like CCleaner, search for large files to delete them, backup files to restore space, or even buy a new hard drive to extend the available space.
One of the most effective options is to delete large files on the system that are not longer needed. This can be video files, games or any file that is excessively large. While it is certainly possible to hunt for large files manually using Windows Explorer or another file browser, it is usually faster to use specialized software like Folder Size, Treesize or Fosix.
Largest Files Finder crawls all hard drive partitions automatically on startup to generate a list of the top 100 largest files stored on any of the drives.
The files are automatically sorted by size with the largest files on top of the list. Each file is listed with its name, parent folder, file size in bytes and the file creation date.
Statistics about the total size those 100 largest files occupy, and their percentage of the total hard disk space and hard disk space on the c: drive are displayed as well.
The browser button in the upper right corner can be used to select a different root folder for the list compilation. That's handy if you want to only find the largest files on a particular partition or drive on the system.
Not everything is golden though. You have virtually no option to interact with the files. There is no option to load, move or delete files that appear in the largest files listing. The only option available is to use an external file manager like Windows Explorer for those operations. Plus, you get ads at the bottom of the screen
Largest Files Finder is a portable software program for the Windows operating system. It is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS.
Largest Files Finder is an easy to use program that helps you find the biggest files on your Windows PC. The downside to using it is that you cannot interact with these files directly; there is no option for instance to delete some of the files listed there directly from within the interface.
