View disk usage through the command line with diskusage.

diskusage allows the flexibility to view what you need without needing a resource-intensive GUI app. You can direct it to query the total disk, specific folders, or file type.

diskusage will be helpful when you need some housecleaning on your disk by letting you apply filters for specific file types, etc., allowing you to target those large needed files. The process is quick and color-coded.
