How will I be able to view my entire hard disk space in CentOS?

I have tried fdisk -l but it will show me the entire space available but I am not able to judge that where all the space have been located. I have 500G and I can view only 20G in the fdisk -l command. Does the other 480G stay hidden? If that is the case, then how to access it?

Only one question here. To ask about drive naming, open another question. (But preferably search first. Your question may already be answered. See if Hard drive/device partition naming convention in Linux answers it.) –  manatwork Oct 15 '12 at 11:16

Look at the output of fdisk -l and df. If you're having trouble interpreting the output, copy-paste it into your question and we can help. –  Gilles Oct 15 '12 at 11:44

Install gnome-disk-utility to view created partitions and free spaces;

And Install baobab to see disk consumption of mounted ones.

df -h will show what's up. It should show partitions and sizes of used and available disk space. It's a command-line tool, so you run it in a terminal.
