Hi there,

Thought you might appreciate some other suggestions ...

You could probably just run df -h /dev/sd[a-z][1-9] instead, to avoid hard-coding a list of partitions. Even better, you could limit the list to mounted filesystems (to stop df mis-reporting disk space) with something like ...
cut -d" " -f1 /etc/mtab | grep '/dev/[hms]d[a-z][1-9]*' | xargs df -h
