Recommended Posts

Guest elgringo

Hi,

 

Is there a command to check free disk space in my loop file ?

 

Thank you,

The obvious answer is to mount the loop file and then run the df command. Is there any reason why you wouldn't want to mount the file?

short answer, in a terminal/console (as root):

# mount -o loop /path/to/your.iso /path/to/mount/at/

a bit more explained (though still terminal based) here
