SHOWFAT graphically displays the physical layout of the files on your disk. I use it for several things. First and foremost, it's a tool that lets me look at my disk and satisfy my curiosity about what's going on in there. It's easy to see when the disk is getting badly fragmented and needs to be run through an optimizer; it's also handy in a multitasker like Desqview, to watch the results of programs that are writing long output files but haven't closed them; it's sometimes helpful when automatic unerase utilities can't successfully retrieve a lost file. Version 2.41 does a CHKDSK-style integrity check on the disk, and reports errors in a slightly more friendly format.
