Du (disk usage) reports the disk space usage for the directory you specify. By default it recurses directories to show the total size of a directory and its subdirectories.

Using Disk Usage (DU)

Usage: du [-c[t]] [-l <levels> | -n | -v] [-u] [-q] <directory>

-cPrint output as CSV. Use -ct for tab delimiting.
-lSpecify subdirectory depth of information (default is all levels).
-nDo not recurse.
-vShow size (in KB) of intermediate directories.
-uCount each instance of a hardlinked file.
-qQuiet (no banner).


CSV output is formatted as:

Path, CurrentFileCount, CurrentFileSize, FileCount, DirectoryCount, DirectorySize
