Graphical display of disk usage by directories

Ever wondered which directories are taking up the most of your disk space? Ever wondered where all you free disk space has gone to?

Just run the xdiskusage utility and it will provide graphical display of your directories in a size proportional to the space they are taking up.

It lets you browse through the contents of the directories so that you quickly and easily can navigate to the culprit causing your disk space shortage issues.

It is possibly, for example, that you will find, a huge temporary file laying in a hidden directory you never knew existed.


There are several other similar tools, say, filelight, to name but one. Which one you use is a matter of personal preference.
