Know the amount of available Disk Space in Linux


We are already know that the Linux shell is the powerful tool which is capable of doing any jobs related with Linux OS .Read more about Linux terminalclick here .Here in this post I am going to tell about a simple command which is used to know the free space available in the hard disk partitions with in no time.
To get started open up the  terminal and  :
  • Type df you can see the list of partitions with available free space listed.
  • Type df -a to get a detailed listing of free space. this Include in the listing file-systems that have a size of 0 blocks, which are omitted by default.
  • Type df -h to get a listing more optimized .Here size is listed in MBs .-h stands for human readable form .
To get the detailed syntax information use the command man df. This will list all the possibilities of the command.
