    Always one of the first programs I install when working on a Windows XP machine. Completely invaluable.

    There's basically two versions of the program here: One for pre-Vista (NT, 2000, XP), and one for Vista and after. Pre-Vista it's integrated into Explorer; the necessary APIs to do that were removed in Vista, and were never reintroduced as far as I'm aware, and therefore you get the (kinda) clunky extra box attached to explorer windows to show folder sizes Vista-onwards. The pre-Vista version is flawless and is all you could ever want. Vista+ is fine and does its job, and even though it's less than desirable, the program is still all around done very well, and you have to keep in mind that this was all the developer was able to do with the APIs he was given. You may not keep it around for day to day use, but that's why you can turn it on/off with a click at the icon in the taskbar. It has its uses. When you need it, it's there. Otherwise, turn it off if it gets in the way. Makes no sense to complain about a) a free thing and b) something that you can turn off

    Seperate Window showing the folder size for Vista and later. Need XP for extra column. But still, pretty useful. Sadly I didn't find a way to customise the value the size is shown in. Apparently only in KB. Easy to read, thanks to commas, still a little annoying.

    Does NOT add a column, but has a separate pop out window with a duplicate list of folders with sizes. BUT you cannot delete, move, copy, rename, or do ANYTHING... so it is helpful to a degree, but would be a LOT better if it was just a column added.
