How much disk space do I have free?
 
I am running Fedora Core 4.

I have a 160 GB drive which Fedora partitioned for me when I installed.

How do I find out how much space I have used / how much space is free?

look for System Monitor in the gnome menu

If you don't mind opening up a Terminal window, do so and type in the command:

df

df -h

If you want to know how much space a particular folder (and its subfolders) is taking up, type "du -s" from that folder.

There's that old debate: which utility gives the more accurate information: df or du? I use both. One is for 'disk free' and the other for 'disk used'. User preference, I'd guess.
