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.

sudo ncdu -xr /

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

I've used programs for the Mac and Windows that were GUI based to look for hidden caches of large files. I needed one to look for big files on my linux server and this is exactly the program I was looking for. It has a great interface for running within an SSH shell.

Great work, and it's free.
