Find Out Whats Using Disk Space In The Terminal

Posted By Weston Ganger

Sometimes Im just looking for a easy way to find out the disk usage of items in a folder or in the whole filesystem

First I will discuss the built-in command for this du, the -h means human readable

# Install using your OS package manager
sudo apt-get install ncdu

# Run the tool
ncdu /path/to/folder

Dont forget to use sudo depending on the folder your using these commands on.
