How to find out the size of my computer hard disk?

0 votes

How can I see the total disk size of my hard disk?

I have used the following command:

# fdisk -l | grep Disk
Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors
Disk identifier: 0x0003dd50
Disk /dev/mapper/fedora_new--host--5-swap: 6274 MB, 6274678784 bytes,
12255232 sectors
Disk /dev/mapper/fedora_new--host--5-root: 53.7 GB, 53687091200 bytes,
104857600 sectors
Disk /dev/mapper/fedora_new--host--5-home: 939.7 GB, 939712839680
bytes, 1835376640 sectors

Should I conclude that the size of my hard disk is 1 TB?

I have started using windows8 few days back. Not happy with this. I am not running more than 6 tabs in Google Chrome browser. Apart from this i have closed all the applications.

When i saw the Task Manager and observed that Due to High Disk usage my Laptop is hanged. In More details i have found that average disk usage is 99%.

I don't know why it is happening like this and what is the solution for this problem.
