Filelight description

Filelight allows you to understand exactly where your diskspace is being used by graphically representating your filesystem as a set of concentric segmented-rings.

Filelight creates a complex, but data-rich graphical representation of the files and directories on your computer. An example of Filelight's representation of KDE's disk usage is shown below. It is important to understand that the full circle represents 143MB, and there are 143MB of files contained recursively in the directory.

Segments are sized relative to the files they represent. Directories have child-segments that represent the files in that directory. Hovering over any segment gives you details about the file it represents, such as its size.

The net-result is something similar to KDirStat, however the data is more dense, and the representation more informative. Most people tend to use Filelight to find out where their diskspace is concentrated, and this is what it is mostly designed to do.. Filelight | MethylBlue. Filelight is free-software that shows your filesystem as a set of concentric pie-charts
