Analyze Disk Space

The AS/400 has a very "easy-to-use" disk analysis tool.

GO DISKTASKS to see it.
That shows you a menu like this:

   1. Collect disk space information   
   2. Print disk space information     
  10. Work with libraries              
  11. Work with folders                
  12. Work with objects by owner       
The first step is to run selection 1 to collect disk information. This starts a job that may run for 15 minutes or so.

When the job is done, use selection 2 to print reports from the disk info. The most interesting are:

1. print all libraries sorted from largest to smallest without file details
2. print details of any library to see each file and how much space it is using
