Hi there,

One of the things I like doing with du is going through directories when I have run out of disk space, trying to find out what is taking up of the room. I use max-depth to try and filter the directories, but this tends to have the problem that I either end up with a few, big directories, which I then need to run du on again, or many small directories which are hard to read. Wouldn't it be great if you could do du --min-size=3G and find all directories bigger than 3G?

Wouldn't the sizes relative to one another be more useful.
I.E. specify the top x% rather than a specific limit.
Have a look at: http://www.pixelbeat.org/scripts/dutop
