    [SOLVED] How to find HDD uuid?

    I just installed new 250GB hard drive in my system.(sda1) I used gparted to create a 70GB partition as ext3. Then chmod to give myself permission. Created a mount point for it in /media. Then mounted the drive. Everything worked fine. The only thing I can't seem to figure out is how to find out what the uuid is for this disk. I have tried:

    ls /dev/disk/by-uuid/ -alh.

    All of my other partitions show up, but not this one.

    Anyone know how I can determine the uuid of this disk?

    Thanks, taurus, for the response. This gives the uuid, but leads me to another question.

    Why do I see it here, but not using ls?
