I ♥ WinDirStat

So, part of my duties as an administrator entail being a janitor. Specifically, cleaning up files when a disk fills up. In the interest of working smarter and not harder, I like to use WinDirStat to find me the heavy hitters quickly. I especially like that it shows me what's in people's recycle bin (which, can we disable that universally on servers please?). The problem is that it gives the recycle bin's owner by SID. That's less than helpful when you need to find someone to put the hurt on have a conversation with. In a future post, I'll show you the powershell script that I came up with to do the conversion.
