I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities:
http://www.nirsoft.net/

One of them is FoldersReport:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/folrep.html

Here's a description from the NirSoft website:

"The FoldersReport utility scans a drive or a base folder that you select, and displays essential information for each folder that it finds: The size of all files inside the folder, The real files size on the disk, number of files inside the folder, number of hidden files, number of compressed files, and number of subfolders. You can use this utility to easily find out which folders use the most space in your drive. You can scan the folders of your local drives, CD-ROM drives, and network resources on a remote computer."

Although the System Requirements section doesn't mention 32-bit and 64-bit W7, I've run it in both without a problem. Here's a screenshot from an execution on a 64-bit W7 system:

you dont happen to have a Lenovo, with R&R ?  then uninstall it and remove the backups
(take on on an external drive)

that makes backups on the same disk, and consumes your space fast  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-4Q2QAK
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
