I have a client that has ran out of space on one of the partitions on a server their medical machines sends data to.   I sent the client a screen shot of the partition showing full along with all the parent folders that are in that drive.   The client asked that to pick a directory and remove data that has not been accessed for the past 2 years.   The problem is that unless the parent folders were modified I could risk deleting sub folders that did have modify changes made to them unless I look at every directory one 1 by 1 and verify the last change.   This will take forever.   Can someone recommend a free tool that will show me the entire contents list of a drive including all folders and which ones are over years old that can be deleted?  They are currently unable to work because of this.  I just dont want to risk deleting data that is needed because 1 folder lists from 2014 but the sub folders under it may list from 2020.
