If a special or a directory is not specified, the free space on all mounted file systems is displayed. If the arguments to are path names, reports on the file systems containing the named files. If the argument to is a special of an unmounted file system, the free space in the unmounted file system is displayed. Options recognizes the following options: Report only the number of kilobytes (KB) free. Report the total number of blocks allocated for swapping to the file system as well as the number of blocks free for swapping to the file system. This option is supported on HFS file systems only. Report the number of files free. Report only the actual count of the blocks in the free list (free inodes are not reported). When this option is specified, reports on raw devices.
