HDGraph is a free disk space analyzer that helps to find large files and folders available on your PC. It graphically displays file size of each item available on your hard disk and helps to find which item is occupying most of the disk space. If there is any unwanted item, then you can even go to that item’s source location to delete it, or can delete that item directly using its interface.

HDGraph also comes with Windows explorer integration feature. This feature will be useful to directly find large items available on a folder or multiple folders just by right-clicking.
