does anybody know of a good linux program that is the same or similar
to the WINDOWS program "Treesize"?
Treesize is described as :-
TreeSize Professional is a powerful and flexible harddisk space manager for Windows 98/ME/NT/2000.
Find out which folders are the largest on your drives and recover megabytes on them.
TreeSize Professional shows you the size, allocated and wasted space, the number of files, 3D bar and pie charts, the last access date, the file owner, the NTFS compression rate and much more information for several folders or drives you choose. It also lets you search for old, big and temporary files. The application has an intuitive Explorer-like user interface and it is fast and multithreaded. You can print detailed reports or export the collected Data to Excel and to an HTML, XML or ASCII file. TreeSize Pro can be started from the context menu of every folder or drive.
This program was very handy for me under windows, and I cannot seem
to locate one like it for LINUX.
You're probably not using NTFS on your GNU/Linux box, so there is basically no such utility in this world. In addition, this description of this tool sounds very "commercial" the wrong way. It looks like they are describing a wonderfull tool that's going to help you a great deal, and that I suppose they are selling for a good price.
Well, I don't want to sound hostile. Just don't let some guys sell you the moon.
Maybe you could try XFTREE to simply explore your hard drive and look for data you'd like to get rid of. In general, there is no data on your hard drive that you didn't put there yourself and remember of.
Most of the time, when you need to clean-up in order to make some room for some new files, you know what to get rid of.
And I don't know, maybe there is such a tool actually, so maybe someone else if going to give you the answer you are longing for.
