    Determine free space

    How might I determine free space on the hard drives in my system? I have 3 or 4 installed.. I need to copy a large number of files locally to burn them to DVD's.

    I've found the df command, but haven't been able to find a command or gui tool to show me all installed drives whether mounted or not.


    Thanks

    the Disk Manager in Applications -> Accessories can give you info

    I like using df with -h "df -h" shows it with human-friendly output...like 65M or 80G... the "mount" command will tell you what everything is
