Disk Usage Analyzer is a graphical, menu-driven application to analyse disk usage in a GNOME environment. It can easily scan either the whole filesystem tree, or a specific user-requested directory branch (local or remote).

It also auto-detects in real-time any changes made to your home directory as far as any mounted/unmounted device. Disk Usage Analyzer also provides a full graphical treemap window for each selected folder.

I use it a few times to see where the files are that weigh on the disk, it appears as an image tree, to locate them easily, and now I use "bleachbit" to delete temporary files because with baobab it is just to preview

Maybe not very powerful application but it can easy show the usage (free and used amount) of hard disk and also can scan for content size in home directory and it's subdirectories.

Extremely useful to find what is wasting your disk space, especially if you have large amount of files and facing the situation when 4Gb DVD isos are sporadically placed to `some` subfolder. This program will show you disk space allocation in visual manner.

Indispensable. It would be partly redundant if there was an instant Media View in Linux that could show, with animated icons & numbers, the usage percentages of all active storage media (a bit like the My Computer view in Windows 7). As it is, the Disk Usage Analyzer is a blunt & very clear way of obtaining this with a few clicks.
