In kde, run 'kdirstat' and then choose the directory you want to
(you can choose an entire partition). kdirstat will then scan the directory
and give you a prioritized summary of where your disk space has gone. It will
take a minute or two to complete the scan.

Another great utility is 'filelight' It does basically the same thing,
presents the data in a pie chart format. kdirstat is tabular. Both will do
you want.

I installed filelight, the second i opened it it was done: *Thunderbird*
eats *54%* of the /home space..
How on earth is this possible!
But more important: How can i get rid of the unnessesary junk it produces?
I throwed away about 15.000 mails, but that had absolutely no effect.

What filelight says:

2,373 MB (54%)Files 49
oddball@AMD64x2sfn1:~/.thunderbird/cgdloiux.default/Mail> 2,418 MB (56%)
Files 176
oddball@AMD64x2sfn1:~/.thunderbird/cgdloiux.default> 2,436 MB (56%)
Files 474 (2%)
oddball@AMD64x2sfn1:~/.thunderbird> 2,436 MB (56%) Files 477 (2%)

Can i just empty these dirs without destroying thunderbird?
Or what would be the best i could do?
