how to find out how much of my HD is being used.


Best Answer birdmun, 02 August 2017 - 12:45 AM

Your filemanager should tell you in the status bar, typically at the bottom (right?), how much space you have total and how much is free. Audacity can export aiff files. ffmpeg can export as aiff as well, I believe. ffmpeg is a CLI program. There may be a GUI available for it somewhere.

i have a smaller SSD but need to save some wav files.  they are large so i need to know how much i am using and how much i have left please.

 

also in ripper x i see mp3 and wav no aiff files format.  is it possible? or is there another app that can do aiff format for ripping/saving?

Doesn't Bodhi's "places module" give you that info too?

Graywizard, you can do it like this:

 

1. Main menu > Settings > Modules > Files, make sure Places is loaded, then

2. Main menu > Settings > Gadgets > Background > Configure Layer, select Places and Add Gadget. The Places gadget should appear on the desktop.

3. Right-click on the gadget to resize and move it.

All the info given by JollyRoger is correct. I just will add, you need to install the package places-moksha before his steps in case you don't have module present among modules list.
