Open a terminal and use the standard tools for that:

df -h
bladernr at GarbageScow:~$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5        37G   20G   15G  57% /
udev            1.8G  4.0K  1.8G   1% /dev
tmpfs           725M  1.1M  724M   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock

/dev/sda7       228G   94G  123G  44% /home

parted -l
bladernr at GarbageScow:~$ sudo parted -l
[sudo] password for bladernr:

Alternatively, open the dash and search for "disk" and run Disk Usage
Analyzer or Disks
