Report the disk space usage for a directory. By default DU will recurse to show the total size of a directory and its subdirectories.
Syntax DU [-c[t]] [-l levels | -n | -v] [-u] [-q] [Directory] Options -c Print output as CSV. -ct Print output with tab delimiting. -l Specify subdirectory depth of information (default is all levels). -n Do not recurse. -v Show size (in KB) of intermediate directories. -u Count each instance of a hardlinked file. -q Quiet (no banner).
When installing du.exe just ensure it is placed somewhere in either the system PATH or in the current directory.
List the files in E:\work and subfolders in verbose mode:
C:\demo\> DU -v E:\work
