SYNOPSISfilelight [ path ]
DESCRIPTIONfilelight allows you to understand exactly where your disk space is being used by graphically representing your file system as a set of concentric segmented rings, where each segment subtends an angle proportional to the disk space occupied by that file or directory.
You can specify a directory to scan on startup at the command line eg:
filelight /home/mxclStarting at the root requires a scan of the entire directory tree, which may take a while.
filelight is available in Konqueror under View | View Mode | RadialMap View.
