best way to view hard disk usage?

Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:20 pm
I actually don't know how to quickly examine hard disk usage in KDE. I have an applet for it but it doesn't upload very quickly nor do I want it to. I'd like to just fire up an application to quickly see how much space is available on each disk. Does one exist?

On all the installations of KDE I have had there has been a default System Monitor icon linked to sysinfo: which shows this. Or you can type sysinfo:// in Konqueror's location bar to get to it.

In case you want to understand what files / folders use space, I find filelight unbeatable

@john hudson
sorry i'm not sure what you're talking about. Where is sysinfo? I can open System Monitor via Alt+F2 but it has no HD info.

@gbebure

file light is pretty sick. reminds me of the disk manager that came with ubuntu. i totally recommend it. kdf is nice too, albeit with less featuers.

try k4dirstar

sysinfo:/ must be run in Konqueror's address field, it's not a program per se
