IronPython Sample: Graphical Disk Usage

This utility written by Jocelyn Turcotte is an IronPython program that leverages Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and System.Windows.Forms to create a handy utility that graphically displays disk usage information.  The readme.htm file in the download (download page: will get you started.

When the application is first launched, a file dialog prompts you to pick a base directory.  This is the directory that will be analyzed.  Once a base directory is chosen, the application scans the file system to retrieve the names and sizes of subdirectories and files.  The utility displays the directory and file information with a treeview in the left pane and a graphical presentation of the relative file size information in the right pane.
