    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

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

    Thanks
