I tried the others, they take it the wrong way.

**ncdu allows to exclude folders like **: monted drives, special drives.

on arch:

ncdu --exclude '/run' --exclude '/media' --exclude '/proc' /

now it really helps, it is fast.

On my laptop I usualy type

sudo ncdu -xr /

-x excludes other disks. I run separate ncdu for every partrition.

Much simpler way to find where the space on your disk is being used.

Not better than du in my eyes...

sudo du / --human-readable --threshold=+1024MB --one-file-system

It's an easy software to analyze and clean-up your storage.

It's incredibly fast and easy to use (if you are used with the terminal)

Can not imagine it being easier to use. Ncdu displays disk usage in a very intuitive way from the terminal.
