dirSize: Quickly Determine Directory Sizes

dirSize displays a directory tree with directory sizes attached to the nodes. It works great if you want to backup a bunch of directories and don't know how to split them on CDs.

After starting dirSize, choose "File > Scan..." and select a root directory. The entire directory structure will be imported into dirSize. If you want to add another directory structure just click on "Scan..." again. To quickly sum up the sizes of individual subdirectories select them by holding down Ctrl and clicking on them. The KB total will be displayed in the status bar.

Importing directory trees is done in the background which means you can already calculate directory sums while dirSize is reading in the directory sizes.
