xdiskusage 

xdiskusage is a user-friendly program to show you what is using up all your disk space. It is based on the design of xdu written by Phillip C. Dykstra <dykstra at ieee dot org>. Changes have been made so it runs "du" for you, and can display the free space left on the disk, and produce a PostScript version of the display.

To compile xdiskusage you need the fltk library. A static-linked Linux executable is also provided here.

Changes in the newest version:


When you run xdiskusage you get this main window:

Clicking on one of the disks gives you (after a bit of a delay) the disk viewing window:

The arrow keys may be used to move the selected directory (shown with a red box) around. There is a pop-up menu (use the right mouse button) with other options for changing the display, you can hide nodes, make that node the "root", change the sort order, etc. You can copy the current path to the clipboard or print the current display (click here for some sample PostScript output).

thank you for writing this nobel tiny piece of software!

I was looking at "xdu" or "LOsT" or even "KdirSTAT" they all need the QT-Libs... its unnecessary. I have only little space left, and your utility was JUST what I needed.

with your util I found out that the /usr had only 28MEGS left because of apache with its 530MB of errorlogs (I program PERL/CGI's - lots of error output while developping ;) )

and this brought the "fltk" and "flwm" to my attention. well, what can I say? thank you!

that's it!
have a real good day, mister! ;)
