Hi. Filelight is great! Accessible by default at the bottom of Dolphin by clicking the bar to the left of the drive freespace.
I'm showing incorrect results from Filelight. By default, it scans the filesize for every file on the filesystem. It does ignore symlinks, but not hardlinks.
There's 3 issues that I see.
I doubt this is a big issue with a default system (I'm unsure how many hard links are in a default install.) But with a backup strategy such as below, this may eventually result in a case where the total size reported by filelight exceeds the capacity of the filesystem. I executed the backup script below every hour, and from 15 backups + one symlink Filelight says I have 2.4TB in /bak, 188.7GB in /. Yet `zfs list` states /bak is 227GB
