I've been trying not just Baobab that came bundled, but also K4dirstat, Filelight and JDiskReport. I have even tried running WinDirStat under Wine! They all start working, then freeze about halfway through the process.

Any advice?

Edit: Here is some info on my partitions. The partition I was trying to scan when I got the error was sda2. I have booted into Windows 7 and run WinDirStat from there, and there I was able to finish the scan successfully. (So actually, I should probably just go to bed and forget about this whole issue. I'm kinda OCD.)

Here is the output to sudo smartctl --all /dev/sda:

  • I've added the output you requested, plus some additional information. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Oct 10 '15 at 21:02
  • I booted into Windows and did a check and repair of the disks. After that, some of the tools, like Filelight and GD Map, work. Fine by me. Enough of this. Thanks for the help! – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Oct 11 '15 at 9:07

Patience is a virtue: First wait long enough for the program to finish if you've got big (or slow) drives as it's analysing all your drives.

Failing that (give it a night), you probably have a file system error on one of your partitions.

So for the Windows partitions, boot into Windows and perform a:

CHKDSK /F X:

for each partition where X is the drive letter of your partitions (probably C, D, E etc..

For the ext4 partition, boot an Ubuntu LiveDVD and perform a:

fsck -C /dev/XdYZ

where X is hor s depending on ATA/SCSI drives and Y is a letter from a to z and Z is a number. (to see them for your system, type blkid on your system)

That should get rid of the file system errors!

These disk usage apps went gray and unresponsive for a while, but when I just waited through it, they eventually came back to life and finished the job. They all gave correct results, except for K4DirStat, which gave wrong results. I also booted into Windows and did a disk scan and repair, that may also have been what caused the programs to unfreeze in the end.
