Another means of getting a disk usage summary
Authored by: aptenergy on Oct 21, '04 02:13:19PM

I use

cd /; sudo du -k | sort -nr > ~/Desktop/diskusage.txt
(enter password)

It presents me with the biggest folders and allows me to go through them. You can always add additional grep arguments if you want to filter out things like the System folder and etc.
