There’s also a nice GUI tool by the Omni Group called OmniDiskSweeper which is useful for finding out where your disk space has gone. It gives a Finder-column-like interface, sorting very quickly by net directory size, including invisible items. In the free version, you go delete the files yourself; for the shareware fee, a fat “delete” button in the main window is enabled. Very useful for finding fat, invisible files and so forth.
I tried this and it quickly helped pinpoint the large files on my drive. There are quite a few things I want to delete before I do my backup and reformat to install Panther in a couple of weeks time.
