The download for the Windows 7 Release Candidate is available for a few more days and I was considering downloading it. However, for some odd reason that I can't describe my hard drive seems to be absolutely full. I know for a fact I haven't downloaded enough to fill up my 237.8g hard drive.

So my question is this. Are there any well known applications that will identify locations in my computer that are housing a lot of data. A possible clean up tool of some sort. I'd like to dual boot this new OS but I'm afraid I won't be able to with 18g left on the HD.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Windows 7 RC is upgradeable from Vista, though the recommendation is a clean installation - ie wipe the drive first. Therefore "clearing out" isn't an issue as you'll need to wipe it anyway, or use a second hard drive.

The thing is, come March I don't want to be left reformatting my PC yet again. I want to be able to just go back to lame 'ol vista again until I get Windows 7 full.
