How to get disk usage per folder

Recently I received a question coming to the support ticketing system on how to get a listing of all folders inside c:\Users folder and their sizes.

The sys admin that asked the question had hundreds of folders in C:\Users and did not want to to do “right click” + Properties on each one.

I started digging a bit and almost wanted to write my own little dot net app, but …

Fortunately, I found this gem: sysinternals disk usage:

I download it and gave it a try:

What I needed was a break down of all folders inside C:\users folder so that the admin can see which user takes the most space on an RDS.

I used this command: “du -q -l 1 c:\Users”

Hope this helps you!
