If I use "fdisk /dev/sda". I can create a partition /dev/sda3 and more but I want to see the free space before creating the partition.
Using "fdisk -l" does not displays the free space that can be used like to create partition /dev/sda3, which is the free space on the partition around 244GB. I like to see that or how I can display that so I can create a partition on it. Any tip would be nice.
not sure why you want it. As I read the table you have space after cylinder 4995, where sda2 ends, so if you start it at 4996 and go on to fill the rest of the disk, which would be fdisk's default, that'll be your partition.
