I am looking for an app like WinDirStat or SpaceMonger for Windows, preferably command line.

I want to set up a script to run regularly whcih will generate a report similar to what you see in WinDirStat with folders and percentage of space taken up.

So over the period of like a week or two I can see which areas/folders are fluctuating in size.

I really like Space Sniffer. It's reasonably fast to scan drives, and you can scan multiple drives simultaneously. It apparently has some command line switches, but I doubt it would be very useful for automated scripts.

For command line, perhaps something like du would suit your needs?
