JDU: Disk Usage

What is it?

JDU is a small program that let's you visualize the files and directories that are taking up space on your hard drive.  It's most useful when you find yourself out of disk space, and need to track down all of the junk that's hiding in the nooks and crannies of your filesystem, just begging to be deleted.  It is written in Java and should work on any platform with a Java2 virtual machine.


Current version: 1.1

First, if you do not have Java installed, Install Java.

You now have two options:

  1. Run JDU using Java Web Start
  2. Download jdu.jar and run it yourself. (This option requires that you know what to do with an executable jar.)
