Dust is a modern du

Dust is a modern version of the du utility which provides information about the amount of disk space occupied by files and folders. The utility is written in Rust, which is why it is called du + Rust = Dust.

Dust is designed to give you an instant overview of which directories are using disk space.

Dust will display a list of the largest subdirectories or files, with the largest subdirectories highlighted.
