try 'format' as root, look at the partition map (format -- partition -- print)

do a df -k and it will show show you the statistics of different filesystems in kbytes.

Statistics are :-

filesystem (the device)
kbytes (total space)
used (used space in Kbytes)
avail (available space in Kbytes)
capacity (capacity in percentage)
mounted on (what is the mounted file system)

if you need more information you can see man df and learn more.

If you are looking for a particular filesystem you can use the following command also

df -k {/filesystem}

post your comments here, if you have any doubts.

Hi gillagilla,

   su as root, the use the format command:

   format -> verify

   look at part 2, Tag -> backup, the size of this entry is the size of your
HD.

   then type in: q <enter> to exit.
