unfortunately, QDiskusage follows symbolic links, and that makes it unusable, since it shows used space where it isn't used.

There should also be an option to hide (or a possibility to show) mounted directories.

Start a transaction before you do all your inserts. This speeds up any initial bulk inserts.

Yeah I tried that but it was still really slow...I think it was slowing things down because while it was reading the file system at full speed it would have to interrupt the hdd read to do a write to the sql db whenever there was insert, which it did for every file! but I'm not sure.

I did a rewrite of it and now though and it keeps it in memory!

It's way faster! Dose about 30 gb's in 6 seconds for me.

Before it would take about 2 hours!!!

Thanks for the idea though!

After doing some debugging SQLITE is at fault for the slow scanning problem

It's terribly slow at insert statements

Any ideas on optimizing would be hugely appreciated!!!

Hello. Great application. Please consider using a more proper naming for your tarballs so we can package your application more easily. A sane schema would be "QDiskusage-$version".tar.gz

Thank you

Your very welcome Vishwajeet. I hope to make things much much better but this is just version 0.1 alpha. The main thing I want to do in the next version is speed up the recrusive folder scanning allogrithm and get windows support (That involves changeing a few sql querys and shouldn't be a issue)
