Does anyone know of a good program that will give us a graphical overview of disk usage on Server 2008?
Ideally we'd like to be able to see what files and folders are taking up the majority of space on our server.
Thanks.

I used it for years as a sysadmin. Displays each folder as large boxes (the larger the box is, the bigger the folder). Helped me eliminate a LOT of space issues. They even let you try it free before you buy and it's pretty cheap to buy anyway. Has a great and practical interface.

And another: jdiskreport http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/screenshots.html - requires JAVA RE.
No matter what solution you choose: be aware that you will have to start it with admin rights (right click ->run as administrator) or system rights which requires elevation. Otherwise the programs will not be able to access all directories there are.
