Hi Monty,

There is a very powerful command that you can find in Linux Operating System, DF is a command for checking the free and used space on the partition. It has few helpful options also.

Examples are given below.

#df              reports disk space used

#df /opt       kilobyte used report

# df -h /etc  human readable MB

# df -s /etc   single directory summary
