Eindhoven University of Technology have a great tool called SequoiaView for displaying a treemap of the contents from a hard drive.
With it you can easily see what large files are consuming your disk space. Here is a pic of my drive:

To use NAntAddin 2005 with Visual Studio 2008 download the latest binaries here.
Extract the NAntAddIn files to My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins
(note: you may need to create the Addins folder if it doesn't exist).

image

Open the NAntAddin.AddIn file in a text editor and change the Version node from 8.x to 9.0:

image

Close the file. Start Visual Studio 2008 and open the Add-in Manager (Tools -> Add-in Manager).

image

NAntAddin should be in the list. Check the Available and Startup checkboxes.
The NAntAddin should now be available from the Tools menu.

image

The last bit of configuration needed is to tell NAntAddin where the NAnt executable is located. You can do this via the NAntAddin options panel.

You are now good to go with NAntAddin for Visual Studio 2008.

From the installed NAnt folder copy the nant.xsd file to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Xml\Schemas

In Visual Studio 2008, create a new XML file, add the root node <project>.
When you add the xmlns attribute to the project node the nant schema will now be available in the drop-down list.

image

NAnt intellisense and schema validation will now be available for the XML document.
