I have a need to determine the amount of space used in a particular

350GB of data)  Are there any other similar tools out there that don't
require smacking around my hard drives to get the data and don't take
hours to run?
Where else would such a program get the data? Elves?

Man am I cranky this morning. Sorry for the tone. But the point stands. :)
That sounds like an indicator of a bigger problem. On an unraided 330GB
drive, du takes a fraction of that to complete. (I would have to run a
test to get actual times.) Sounds like there is something else going on.
