Tracks and reports changes in file size

Diskfree is a shell script that tracks changes in your filesystem and reports on size changes. It can report to STDOUT, or through email. It gives you total disk usage, new directory allocations, removed directory allocations, and changes in the size of current directories. It can be run in any interval (hourly, daily, weekly, etc), configured to generate detailed reports or summaries, and be told to watch only certain directories.
