Determing free disk space
Posted on 2001-06-25
Ya, I recently installed Linux on a 2 gig partition of my hardrive, and I'm having trouble finding out how much disk space I have left. A friend told me to try "du -h" but it appears that it shows how much space each individual file takes up, and i don't really want to add up everything and then subtract it from 2,048MB. So what i'm asking is, is there a utility for this? Or possible a different switch for "du"? I looked at the "du man"ual boot it wasn't much help to this newbie. I'm running Mandrake 8.0 if that matters.
