How to get hard drive info in Redhat 9

This is my first time trying linux and i'm very happy with it so far. My question is how do you access your hard drive information such as space used and remaining free space. Thanks,

you can use two commands:
df and du
at the command line. df gives you the overall usage and disk available for your device, and du checks individual directory trees.
