I found a cool little app the other day called fsv which stands for 
'File System Visualizer'. It provides a very cool little 3D graphical 
picture of how your disk is being used. I got rid of about 2GB of old 
stuff on my Windows network that I had forgotten was there in jsut a few 
minutes. It works across Samba mounts and follows links as far as I can 

It's not a file manager, in the sense that all it does is provide a 
picture. You can then clean stuff up quickly from the command line or 
whatever way makes most sense to you.

If nothing else, the interface is fun.
