I'm trying to find out in a Linux terminal on my Synology NAS drive, how to see how much space is taken up by directories labeled as
eadir. For those not familiar, these are basically metadata files that get used in media applications, web apps, etc. on the front-end of the NAS drive.
so far I navigated to my root
/volume1/ directory and have tried:
du -h -> Took a very long time, not sorted by file size.
du -h > output.txt -> This actually put all the information in a file, still not sorted by file size.
du -h > output.txt | sort -> sorted the files purely numerically, so a 10GB file would show up before a 20KB file just because numerically 10 is less than 20.
What other ways can I try to find out the largest files on my drive?
