OSX Treesize type utility?

Hi,

On my XP box I use a great utility to find disk space which I've generally lost as I've put files in directories ! Treesize gives a breakdown of space taken on the HD ordered by directories.

Is there a similar utility for OSX which will show me a breakdown of my HD ordered by directories taking up the most space ?

I've used Disk Inventory X but it's no where near as good.

'du -sk * |sort -n' is a reasonable command line bit of unix, but not exactly "friendly". More a kind of utility I use on Solaris at work than a nice GUI oriantated OS !

Cheers

Under the downloads section there is a mac version as well as windows. It works great if you don't mind the slowness.

As you say, works great. Just what I needed.

Thanks
