Another day, another Linux distro, and if you are scratching your head on how to easily check the amount of free hard disk space on your elementary OS computer, then you have landed on the right place. Quickly, here is how.
As usual, first the GUI way of finding the hard disk properties.
Launch ‘Files’ from the ‘Applications’ menu.
In the left pane of ‘Files’, select the hard disk partition for which you want to check the hard disk free space. It will be located in the ‘Devices’ section.
In the right side, right-click on a blank area and select ‘Properties’ from the right-click context menu to get the details of occupied hard disk space and remaining free space.
For those who want to check it by command terminal way:
Launch Terminal and use the df command:
For a specific partition use df followed by partition. For example:
df -h /dev/sda6
