Need help finding what is causing backups to go over the media capacity?

Ever have backups working with free space on the tape/disk then one day jump to being over tape/disk capacity?

Maybe someone backed up their computer to the server or synced their data to the server.

It is hard to try and find what has changed, but with DiskData you can look to see which directories are the largest very quickly and it helps to eliminate the need to check each one to see where the change might of occurred.

You can go to http://www.diskdata.com/Overview.html and see where the problem might be located.

A few things I like about this program is that it is relatively small in size:

One option I like to check when running it is to show data in MB, but other than that I leave the rest as defaults.

Feel free to give the 30 day trial a whirl and purchase it if you like it!
