I feel like an "absolute beginner" again by asking this, but I've found nothing clear so far. I've just successfully moved my Home folder to a separate partition to allow more space for expansion and am about to do the same on my partner's pc, where I cannot afford to screw up! So before making any changes I want to actually look into her two main linux partitions, sda5 and sda6, to double-check they contain what I think they should. I can see from using Gparted what proportion of the partitions contain data, but not what that data is. I know how to list the contents of a directory using the terminal, but with the file system being directory based, I don't know the correct commands (if such exist - but presumably they do, given linux's flexibility) to list the entire contents of an individual partition. (And if there's a GUI method as well, so much the better.)
