Script to show folder sizes

Nick_D asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-10

I have a file server and I would like to be able to run a script to show the current size of the folders on a particular partition.  I would also like to have another script to be able to then give more detailed information about larger files, for example, the size of all the sub directories in that folder.

I am fairly new to scripting so any help would be appreciated.
