How do you display summary of disk usage?

I am trying to create a command string that makes use of the du or df utilities to show block count in kilobytes (1024 bytes) instead of multiples of 512 bytes, any suggestions? Thanks.....

but you can use the -options
df -h for human

df -k will put the output in kilobytes, and I have found it is a little more portable than df -h, even though I too prefer df -h.

Read the man page on "df" for details.

Same thing (-k flag) applies to du as well (which I use a lot to compare disk usage under sub-dirs with `du -ks`).
