The pie view is great but it would be nice to also have an option for a block view (see attachment for example).

    Thank you very much for your message (and donation ;)).
    I tried few months ago to draw this kind of graph. The result was not very good and I've given it up.
    You will find in attachments some exemples of my results. You will see that the placement of folder names is a big problem. :(
    So I don't think I will spend more time on that view.
    What's your opinion ?

    I think it looks pretty good, just needs a little tweaking. Obviously you have to figure out how wide the file/folder names are perhaps by counting the characters and using an average character width. Here are some options:

    1. Show name of largest file then in descending order unless name interferes with another name.
    2. Same as 1. but also use multiple lines for names instead of single line.
    3. Show no names (use hover feature to find name)

    If those don't work then no biggie.

    Good luck.
