See `describe-mode' for additional bindings, such as
`disk-usage-dired-at-point' to open a `dired' buffer for the current

Instead of displaying only the current folder, `disk-usage' can also display
files in all subfolders recursively with `disk-usage-toggle-recursive'.

Marked files can be trashed with `disk-usage-delete-marked-files'.  When
called with a prefix argument, files are deleted permanently.

Run `disk-usage-by-types' to display statistics of disk usage by file

With a prefix argument, cache is updated when reverting the buffer.

With `disk-usage-add-filters' you can filter out files with arbitrary
predicates, e.g. files bigger than some size or older than a certain number
of days.
