I was reading this answer that suggested
df -h for checking disc space. But in the comments, another user suggested
df -h --total and at this time has 93 upvotes.
I tried both
df -h and
df -h --total and the output is the same on my device.
men to see what
--total does and this came out. I don't quite understand it either. a little elaboration would be appreciated.
elide all entries insignificant to available space, and produce a grand total
