Dua (Disk Usage Analyzer) is a tool to conveniently learn about the usage of disk space of a given directory. More information: https://github.com/Byron/dua-cli.

  • Analyze specific directory:

dua {{path/to/directory}}

  • Display apparent size instead of disk usage:

dua --apparent-size

  • Count hard-linked files each time they are seen:

dua --count-hard-links

  • Aggregate the consumed space of one or more directories or files:

dua aggregate

  • Launch the terminal user interface:

dua interactive

  • Format printing byte counts:

dua --format {{metric|binary|bytes|GB|GiB|MB|MiB}}

  • Set the number of threads to be used:

dua --threads {{count}}
