Disk Usage| Size of All Sub directories in a Directory

By | November 24, 2011

So, here is a small shell script for you people which will help you list the disk usage or size of all sub directories in a current directory. To get the disk usage of all files and directories in a current directory you can simplly use the following command.

du -sh *

But if you want to get only the size of all the directories available in a particular directory, then you can propably use this bash shell script.




for i in `ls -p | grep ‘/’ | cut -d’/’ -f1`
#echo $i
cd $i
size=`du -sh`
echo “$i –> $size”
cd $HERE

The above bash script caliculates the size of each subdirectory for one level and caliculates its size and gives you the output.
