Hi. I was wondering if there is a feature in leopard which lists all your files/apps in order of size, similar to windoze's add/remove programs, but with normal files included in the results. I thought it might be possible to do a spotlight search for everything and sort by size, but no.

Maybe there is a 3rd party app that will do this for me?

Thanks

Have a look at this thread:
160gb Hard Drive and never have any space

Amongst others Disk Inventory X and WhatSize are both tools that will show you file size info.
