Baobab is a C/gtk+ application to analyse directory trees in any Gnome environment. Baobab can easily scan either the whole filesystem tree, or a specific user-requested directory branch. It also includes a complete file-search functionality and auto-detects in real-time any changes made to your home directory as far as any mounted/unmounted device. Baobab also provides a full graphical treemap window for each selected folder.
