Android, is an open source software but when it comes to some basic functionality it lacks many features. Once an App is uninstalled in an Android device, all the related files are not deleted from your device. Due to this and also due to accumulation of many data files it becomes difficult to keep a track of memory usage and also Android does provide the function of checking the disk usage of Folders by default but the complicated interface makes the task very confusing.
DiskUsage, developed by Ivan Volosyuk, shows you which files and folders are occupying how much space on your device. While the feature is available in Android by default but this app provides a very easy and convenient way to accomplish the task.
From the developer :
DiskUsage provides a way to find files and directories on storage card which consume a lot of space.
Displays diagram with directories/subdirectories proportional to their size.
The app does the task it claims with ease. The app works just like how SpaceMonger works for Windows. Once launched the app will scan your /sdcard and will generate a map. In the generated map each folder will be represented by a rectangle. The bigger the rectangle the bigger is the folder in size.
Using this app will also inform you which files are mostly taking up your disk space which otherwise would had been unknown to you. You will discover how old nandroid backups occupy most of your disk space and hence can enable to free space for other usage.
DiskUsage is available in Android Market for free and is a definite recommended App for every Android user.
