    G'day pmilne,

    If you download WhatSize (click for download link), you can view what files are on your HD and their sizes.

    WhatSize is a simple tool that allows the user to quickly measure the size in bytes of a given folder and all subfolders and files within it. You would be surprised at to how many useless files might be laying around on your hard disks. The files and folders are automatically sorted by size, with the biggest sizes first.

    I'd recommend Disk Inventory X as well.

    I like both tools for different reasons...

    Actually, if You open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility) and select any disk and click the Info button, you can see a count of all files and folders on the disk.
