Great program, i use it very often.
One feature i'd like to request: progress indication. It might be difficult to know total number of files until it's counted, but progress can be determined by computing total size of files scanned and compare it to disk usage.
It would be good to see a progress bar near count of files scanned.

Nice application, but still not perfect.
When I delete or remove some file using the Filelight, it should recalculate the graph without reading all data again.
In the program called scanner for Windows (http://www.steffengerlach.de/freeware/scn2.zip) it works perfect.

Second problem is with the line used to write address to be scanned. When I write there something like /usr/src/ it works ok, but if I want scan smb://192.168.1.1/data the program try to scan /home/user/smb://192.168.1.1/data

This should be integrated in Dolphin as view beside icons, details and columns.

Filelight is one of the usefullst features i ever have seen. Please dont waste it. Port it to KDE4 and integrate it into dolphin. This would increase the popularity extremly.

PS: I love your program.
PPS: GiB/MiB is ok.

There are some problems with the % displayed. 33% used and 11% not used. 33 + 11 = 44 and not 100% ???

Very nice, very handy!!

Just one minor thing, for some reason you have stuck an 'i' in GB, making it GiB which is not needed.

I almost agree with you, but the prevalence of GiB is increasing, and I am a scientist.

Yeah, I'll probably change it, no need to be confusing for puritan reasons. Anyway the justification for GiB/MiB is poor.

Well, there is a 'i' in Giga-Byte, but where is a 'i' in Mega-Byte?

Follow the URL in my previous comment. It's nothing to do with the spelling it's to do with the unit standards defined by the Scientific Institute.

Same behaviour here. :( Maybe a double-free or something.

I'm really impressed by this program, it's incredibly useful.

Having a small problem if I load filelight view up in Konqueror, then right click on a cell and choose to open in Konqueror, the whole thing crashes. Can provide the full data if required.

Does anyone else find this?

three cheers to the dev!
