What command may I use to list the currently mounted filesystems on a Unix system?

    Next time, write the question in the text of the question itself, not just in the title. Also consider the fact that we are volunteers here. Demanding an answer is incredibly rude. – Kusalananda Oct 8 '17 at 9:44

  • Considering the trouble what Linuxes are doing with the mount table in the last decade, I can't think that this question would be bad. If you think it is, then enter a mount command and see the page-long crap what you get back. Yes, this question is dupe, but it is not a bad question. – peterh - Reinstate Monica Oct 9 '17 at 1:58

You could try mount.

If you have something you'd like to do but don't know what command to use to do it, use the apropos command:

apropos mount

The mount command is the first one listed on my OpenBSD system.

Reading its manual:

The system maintains a list of currently mounted file systems. If no arguments are given to mount, this list is printed.

There are more than one possibility for that. I prefer: (as root or with sudo) lsblk -f. It shows the device name, the filesystem, the UUID, and the mount point, and is well formated to read it. You can simply use mount but this shows also the virtual filesystems like /proc, /sys, /tmpfs and so on.

  • There is no indication that the user is using Linux, though. – Kusalananda Oct 8 '17 at 9:48
  • Although I admit that is is highly probable. – Kusalananda Oct 8 '17 at 9:51
