I used to Love ExploreXP.exe for checking on drive space, and see how big folders are.  It was easy to see the folders taking up a lot of space and drill down to find the offending folders/files.  But it no longer works great, having lots of problems with linked files (especially in the user folders and looping folders in there).

So, what do you use now to fast and easily see the Folder sizes??

I've used WinDirStat (Free) for a long time https://windirstat.net/
It's small (fast to install).

This is another popular one...

No points-

Both of those are solid recommendations.  I usually use TreeSize as the interface works better for my needs (WinDirStat gives you a gui with blocks that represent the size of each object, which I haven't found particularly useful in my usage)
