Sequoiaview – harddisk visualisation

Did you ever wonder where all that hard drive space went too? Sequoiaview generates organic-like views of the files and folders on your hard drives using cushion treemaps. SequoiaView was developed by Jack van Wijk at the computer science department of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven.

Sequoiaview can be downloaded for free.
