      glitchy An actually actively developed alternative to WinDirStat that loads things much, much faster by using the master file tree instead of manually loading everything in.

      Many servers are command-line only over ssh, so graphical tools are useless for those. This is a good tool to be able to see what is going on quickly and using only a ssh shell session.
