Accessing your contacts and calendar

The tool does what it is supposed to do and the UI is nice and clean. One star down for accessing calendar and one star down for accessing contacts - all that "behind the scenes"... :(

Simple and effective

Simple user interface that breaks folders, subfolders and files down by size. Easily pinpoints which folders and subfolders are taking up the most space. The software is able to delete folders of your choice straight from the user interface. Not sure how good of a job it does in removing every single trace file, but will get rid of most of it (haven’t tested). Great for identifying old applications, caches, or folders of videos that you no longer need to keep on your drive. No bloatware. Works great!

Success! Quickly uncovered the hidden file that was my problem.

Worked great, easy to use. I installed several others and "Disk Cartography” was the only app that delivered! It quickly uncovered the hidden file that was my problem. Highly recommended.
