Ubuntu Terminal: How Much Disk Space do I have Left? CodeUnit 19 AUG 2011

To see how much disk space you have left on your Ubuntu linux desktop or server via the terminal is made easy thanks to the standard df command that comes bundled in most Linux distros.

The most default way to use this is:

df -hT

where the h switch returns the size in user readable units like GBs or MBs, while the T switch prints out the filesystem type.

Nifty.
