How can I find out how big a specific Droplet is?

Hi all,

I’m very new to DigitalOcean droplets, having moved here from AWS. I hosted there for years but it just got too expensive. Loving DigitalOcean, so far.

Beyond running basic commands like “du -k” etc, is there a location in the DigitalOcean control panel where I can see how much space a Droplet is using? The graphs are useful but don’t show how much of the my 40GB space has actually been used.

If the answer is simply that 40GB minus the output of “du -k” is sufficient, I’m happy with that. :)
