How to partition 1TB hdd?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 21, 2013
absolute beginner on linux systems. I would like to get a quick suggestion before installing ubuntu, even tough i lost all my data on my D:/ drive while trying to install it last nite.
on windows i use C: and D: as C:/Windows and D:/Movies, Photos, All Personal Data
C:/ around 100-150GB and D:/ 900GB
now how i should partition C: and D: in linux? i guess the filesystem will be ext4 for both but mounting to? C: can be /root? D: /home? how should i distribute the capacity as well?
And installation was asking to give a swap partition as well.
[SOLVED] How to find HDD uuid?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 1, 2009
I just installed new 250GB hard drive in my system.(sda1) I used gparted to create a 70GB partition as ext3. Then chmod to give myself permission. Created a mount point for it in /media. Then mounted the drive. Everything worked fine. The only thing I can't seem to figure out is how to find out what the uuid is for this disk. I have tried:
ls /dev/disk/by-uuid/ -alh.
All of my other partitions show up, but not this one.
Anyone know how I can determine the uuid of this disk?

multiboot system questions on an 120GB ssd + 1TB hdd (Windows 7, Ubuntu, Slackware)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2013
Hello, I am planning on building a new computer over the summer (or early fall), and want to design a multi-boot system.
I would like to install:
Windows 7 home premium- for gaming and windows only programs
Ubuntu 13.04- for use as a main OS
Slackware 14.0 (or the next release)- for learning console only based linux
My planned system:
cpu- i5 3570k/ i5 4570k
motherboard-z77, or haswell equivalent (both with UEFI)
8GB of ram(with room to upgrade to 16GB)
Gtx 660/ Gtx 760 (with room for 2-way sli)
1 120GB ssd
1 1TB hard drive
cd burner is included
What i would like:
to install all three OS's on the 120GB ssd, using the hdd as storage for everything
a comprehensive guide to partitioning both storage devices
any suggestions to make this better in any way (will accept any solutions for problems, that could arise,
so one or two OS's on the hdd is okay, but not great)
Because i have not purchased any of the key components, i can change this build to accommodate the multi-boot,
Proposed 64GB SSD and 1TB HDD partitioning plan for new build. Comments please

Hi. I'm planning to cross the great divide to Linux now that XP is in it's last gasps of life Been in IT for 45 years: mainframes, then DOS/Windows for 30 years. Going back to using the command line and learning a new environment is going to be strange
I'm about to order a new system box (see below) and my existing box will be a hand-me-down to my wife and will also have Linux put on it (maybe PCLinuxOS which I did install on my laptop many years ago when it died after a Windows update). Enough rambling, so to my first question.
I would be grateful if someone could review the partition plan below. In particular the SSD allocation and size before I submit the order. If 64GB is too small then I could go to 120GB but, due to cost, would probably have to go for a cheaper SSD. My aim is to backup frequently changing data daily and to avoid data spread (current & previous PCs had 17 partitions).

HDD sda1 mounts but won't boot (1TB HDD, ext3, desktop)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 27, 2013
I'm suddenly having big problems booting my System76 Wild Dog desktop unit. When I try to boot up, all I see is text flying by, way too fast to read. This continues until I press the front-panel "reset" button.
After hitting "reset," I've plugged in a live-USB flashdrive with a bootable Ubuntu-12.04 on it, and have been booting from that. (Using this flashdrive is the only way I've been able to boot over the last few days.)
"Disk Utility" on the flashdrive's Ubuntu, when I run that utility's "SMART Data -- View SMART data and run self-tests," says that my 1-terabyte, ext3-formatted HDD has 362 bad sectors. (I don't know how serious that is or isn't.) It also has a red warning at ID #5 "Reallocated Sector Count" where at right, it shows (in red) "Normalized: 92, Worst: 92, Threshold 36, Value: 362 sectors".
When I run Disk Utility's "Check Filesystem," it reports: "File system ch
[SOLVED] How to: check HDD capacity Debian Lenny
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2010
Hello to everyone.
I am newbie to Linux world but trying and so far it is interesting (I have some spare time).
Anyway, today is my first thread.
My specs: Debian Lenny i686, 7gb ram, 1tb hdd, Pentium 4 2.2 the rest not important.
Now, i did clean install of Debian on to my 1tb hdd as such:
- 14 gb swap (as far as I understood it has to be twice as ram)
- / root 25 gb
- /home the rest
I don`t know if it`s important, but I am under Gnome+Compiz+Emerald. Probably not, but that will be important for my next question, if anyone will be able to help me.)
So the first question is:
There is a program in: Applications/SystemTools/Disk Usage Analyzer
It tells me thisScreenshot-Disk Usage Analyzer.png
Correct me if I am not right, but i am running out of disk space on /home? Why? If anyone could explain me, where did 1tb went to?
Thank you in advance and see you.
how to get HDD and SSD serial number in linux using command line

How to collect HDD size and available or used space in linux cli?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 16, 2014
I'm trying to find some sort of command or regex to get the size and available or used space of a hard drive in linux.
At the moment I'm using this;
and getting something like this;
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 10G 3.1G 6.4G 33% /
/dev/sda2 147G 5.8G 134G 5% /mnt
What I need is to be able to, per drive, collect the Size, Used and Avail values. Any thoughts on how I could go about collecting that data?
EDIT: Since I apparently wasn't quite clear enough, here's basically what I want the end result to be;
'/dev/sda1' => array(
'size' => '10G', 'used' => '3.1G', 'avail' => '6.4G'
'/dev/sda2' => array(
'size' => '147G', 'used' => '5.8G', 'avail' => '134G'
Either that or each partition being in it's own separate array, rather than a master array.
How to remove HDD password
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 20, 2008
Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 600M that has a HDD password. I tried the HD in another system and the password is in the firmware of the drive.
Can I remove this, you know of any application that will do this.
I have read that if I insert anther HD it will became locked too, while I do not believe this to be true, I want to make sure if any one here has done it.
Any insight will be appreciated.
