how do I check how much hardrive is being used?
 
Hi,
Recently I upgraded the version of fedora core I am running on my computer. Before this upgrade the command du -h would display how much space being used/free on my computer. Now, this same command displays how much space each file takes up in a folder. Does anyone know how to check how much free space I have on my drive without du? Or, does anyone know if there is a du command with the original functionality I described?

Thanks

The command is df -h, not du -h :-).

there is a great program called filelight that will help u know exactly the folders that contain alot of space

"Filelight allows you to understand exactly where your diskspace is being used by graphically representating your filesystem as a set of concentric segmented-rings"
