Disk Usage Analyser (also known as baobab) is a graphical, menu-driven application that you can use to view and monitor your disk usage and folder structure. It is a GNOME based application and a component module of the gnome-utils package.

This utility also auto-detects in real-time any changes made to your home directory as far as any mounted/unmounted device. Disk Usage Analyser also provides a full graphical treemap window for each selected folder.
