I've used Sequoia View for my PCs for years. One of the design components it uses is to sort as it goes along, from largest to smallest.
As an example, if I am looking at my complete hard drive, the largest folder (probably USER) would show in the top left corner. The next smaller folder would be just below that, with the next smaller folder below that, etc. until the column is full, making it easy to see exactly which folder(s) eat the most space. Sorting is done recursively so that the largest space-hog within each folder is again at the top left of its space.
The advantage of this arrangement is that my space hogs are in the upper left corner of my screen, making it easier for me to drill down and attach problem areas.
