    How do I know size of all the files in my computer?

    I want to know the size of all files (including the operating system (ubuntu10.04LTS) files, other installed program files and my personal files) in my computer. How do I do that?

    Size of the files: open up System Monitor, and click on File System tab. You should see how much space is used, and how much is available.

    Hope this helps.

    I find some of the gui tools include other mounted partitions in the total.

    You can also do this:
    # check sizes of
    Partition sizes
    df -Th | sort
    Inodes:
    df -i
    cd / or cd /home
    sudo du -hc --max-depth=1
    Shows just /
    sudo du -hx --max-depth=1 / 2> /dev/null

    +1 for du -h .. but if you want a quick overview of the whole filesystem, I like the disk usage analyzer utility.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install baobab
    Then look for the disk usage analyser from the ubuntu menu.
