What if we could see our hard drive contents like the map of the earth? everything visual with the names of the countries and other important information in it. Then, like seeing the earth globe we can figure out how big Russia is and how many islands islands Japan has, we could easily figure out what was the biggest folder on our drive and how many files a folder contained :-).

This was only a perception in my mind till today but today I have found my dream come true :-). I have found one software that visually displays the map of the drives in our system. Its name is SpaceMonger.
