Disk Usage Analyzer, formerly known as Baobab, is a graphical disk usage analyzer for GNOME. It was part of gnome-utils, but has been a standalone application since GNOME 3.4. The software gives the user a menu-driven, graphical representation of what is on a disk drive. The interface allows for selection of specific parts of filesystem being scanned so a single folder, the entire filesystem, and even remote folders and filesystems can be scanned. The graphical representation can be switched between a ring chart and a treemap chart so the presentation can be tailored to the specific content being scanned

If a default Ubuntu installation is not being used, Baobab can be installed by issuing the following command in a terminal window:

  •    sudo apt-get install baobab
