Ubuntu: How can I view my partition sizes and mount points? [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS. The installation was done by a computer shop (I had a faulty hard drive, which they replaced). I'd like to see if they set up my partitions as I requested. How can I view the partition sizes and mount points?


You can use GParted(GNOME Partition Editor). To install it in Ubuntu, run the following commands(one-by-one) :-

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install gparted  

After installation, you can use GParted Partition Manger to view partition sizes and mount points.


You can use the following command lines, that together will give you a good overview of the partitions (location, sizes, free space and mount points),

df -h  sudo parted -ls  sudo lsblk -f  sudo lsblk -m  

If your terminal window is wide enough (for example 130 characters), you can combine the lsblk commands to

sudo lsblk -fm  


try df. Sometimes is enough. By default you get something like

Filesystem     1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on  /dev/sda3       65389132  23268884  38775608  38% /  tmpfs            2004540     19004   1985536   1% /tmp  /dev/sda5      169672296 142616624  18430080  89% /home  /dev/sda1       64147300  50588732  10293340  84% /backups  

several options available.
