Need to find large files on Hard Drive

I need to find large files on a Hard Drive on one of my Windows 2003 servers. Does anybody know of any tools or  utilities that can list the largest size on the hard drive to the smallest? I really need to find which log files are getting bigger

Treesize Free is nice, although not quite as pretty as it's Professional counterpart. You can get a trial here:

"FolderSizes" is a similar tool that does the same thing as TreeSize. I use it on vista systems since it doesn't choke with "access denied" errors quite as easily. I know that doesn't relate to you but it's an alternative. 15 day trial is here:

If you are looking for free version then try

If you are not interested to invest then you can also try using vbscript to find the large size and removing them. The below given link will display the files of mentioned size. To delete you can include objFile.delete before next
