WhatSize http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/13006
does essentially the same thing and is free. While it doesn't have the bar graphs that WheresTheFreeSpace does which show which folders are the largest, you can easily determine that just by looking at the top of the lists, which are ordered from largest to smallest folders/files.
OmniDiskSweeper http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7402 is another alternative, although it costs $15 but is nearly identical to WhatSize.
Anyway, $30 for WheresTheFreeSpace is way too high. Check out the alternatives mentioned above,
compare them to WheresTheFreeSpace, then decide which one you would really like.

You might want to think twice about installing this package. It replaces resources in the /System/Library area (specifically, the InterfaceBuilder framework) which is a strict no-no according to Apple.

I only discovered this after trying to uninstall the application. So now I have to reinstall that package. Bleah.

WhatSize can be used for similar purposes, and it's free.

I can think of at least 3 other OS X programs that do the same thing for free.

Finder? Looks like Finder that puts all the files together while browsing and keeps just folders. Moreover it has to load it at once. Listing while browsing would be nice... There's unfortunately no use of this application for me...

And 30 bucks? I would consider going down on 10 or so if I were the dev...

To Velvet Sponge: you just type "free space" in the software search window and see the results for yourself. Is it so hard for you to figure this out? Now, about this program: it stinks of rip-off, advertised as it is and considering the shareware fee, I would'nt even consider downloading it, at least not before I downloaded and tried the free alternatives.

Hey Guys- I hope you've gotten a chance to see the powerful use of WheresTheFreeSpace and seen some of the options it provides that makes it better than similar competitors.

Among many other advantages, WheresTheFreeSpace also allows users to print a summary report with good information, create inclusion/exclusion lists that only show specific file types or allows you to exclude certain file types and WheresTheFreeSpace also allows you to view hard drive usage based on user ownership.
