    Instead of having to go into properties everytime, just switch the view to details in my computer and you get a nice overview of all your harddrives, cd-burners, usb sticks, mapped networked drives, etc....Keyboard short cut Windows+E

    If you fancy a nice graphical look try SequoiaView.

    Or to check what is filling up a disk/partition try Laurent Berger's dFolder - folder size shell extension.
