How do I tell how much space I have left on my hard drive?

So like the title says, I am curious to see if the EFM will allow me to see how much space I have left on my hard drive. Also, I would greatly appreciate if some one could point me in the direction of where my "Downloads" folder would be located. I am sorry in advanced for being completely new to linux.

Disclaimer: I read the section on the EFM on the intro guide, and it did not help.

Thanks in advance people.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

You could just use a command line to do it.

For example:

df -h
Will show you free space on all mounted filesystems

Yes df -h ,

Some filemanagers can be configured to show free space.

But, as you get more familiar with the comandline you will find a quick
df -h
is far quicker as well as having greater detail.
