    Program that lists all files on your computer in order of size?

    Any one knoe of such a program?

    I was infected with the HaHa virus soemone i don't know how any way to cut along story short it infects zip file sand stuff but some of them it makes a GB long.

    I wondered if any of you knew a program that woudl map all my files and tell me a list of al files by file size so I can check to see if any of thes elarge files are left around.

    I keep running out of hard drive space and I suspect there is some large un needed files around.

    does it have to be a program?

    I would just use the "find" on your start menu

    Start>Search>Find Files or Folders

    and than sort them with size by clicking on the size column

    Or even easier, press Window+F (ie, hold down your windows button and press F).

    Select the size range of files you wish to see (for instance, listing just files over x Mb is quicker than listing all files.

    When the search is done, click on the size column header to sort by size.
