Managing disk space


I’ve been looking for someway to manage the diskspace on my account - specifically to allow me to sort folders and files by size so I can locate and remove or modify files that are taking up room unnecessarily. However, I’ve not been able to find anything of this sort. Any one have any suggestions?



ls -S

lists all files in current dir biggest to smallest. Surely that’s not what you’re talking about but maybe?

Unnecesssary files? Don’t be so sloppy! =D (I’m not really one to be talking)



Also to list just the directories in the directory you are currently in you can use:

find -type d ! -name “.” -prune -print
