In the old days, Win 3.1 or DOS I believe, there was this graphic display you could get of how your diskspace was being used. It would have a bunch of nested rectangles each in relative size for the amount of diskspace used by that folder. So for example you'd have a big FOLDER rectangle, then a smaller SUB-FOLDER1, SUB-FOLDER2, and SUB-FOLDER3 rectangles inside, and inside each of those smaller yet rectangles. It was just a really cool way to see where all of your disk space was being used up. I have no idea what it was called, and haven't seen anything of the sort since. I was just wondering if anyone remembers it and maybe where I could find something like that again.
Thanks for the memories,
Dave

That's exactly what I wanted! Thanks so much. I didn't think I was the only one who thought that was a cool way to look at things. I think I'll go swim in the nostalgia. Thanks again!

Spacemonger is going to be coming out with 2.1 very soon, just in case you missed the link

Sean Werkema (programmer) is currently taking beta applications for a short, small beta test

I saw, that looked a lot more intensive than the current version. It seems he's been spending time adding quite a few new features. I even read up a bit on the TreeMapping, and it's history seems to line up quite well with my memory of the program. The one I remember must have been one of the first applications of Tree Mapping in a commercial venue.
