You could try du (disk usage) for windows.  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896651.aspx

There's also windirstat https://windirstat.info/

There's a powershell script from  http://langexplr.blogspot.com/2007/03/implementation-of-du-s-in-powershell.html
function directory-summary($dir=".") { 
  get-childitem $dir | 
    % { $f = $_ ; 
        get-childitem -r $_.FullName | 
           measure-object -property length -sum | 
             select @{Name="Name";Expression={$f}},Sum}

Open in new window
