As suggested by others,
df can easily do the job, but baobab (see screenshot below) is a great tool for analysing disk usage of whole file system or specific folders.
If you are using ubuntu, then baobab is already installed. Start it from
Menu->Accessories->Disk Usage Analyzer or type
baobab in a terminal window.
Here are some approaches:
Or install the totally awesome kdirstat graphical utility:
There is also ncdu:
Not quite happy with the available disk usage analyzers and looking for a fun project to get used to C programming, I started working on ncdu: A disk usage analyzer with an ncurses interface, aimed to be run on a remote server where you don't have an entire gaphical setup, but have to do with a simple SSH connection. ncdu aims to be fast, simple and easy to use, and should be able to run in any minimal POSIX-like environment with ncurses installed.
