Thanks Robert, so basically what you are saying is that if you use that
parameter, the output is rounded up to the nearest integer
representation (in this case Gig) rather than displaying it as a
fraction? For example, for a file that is 600 MB in size I would have
expected the command to display it as 0.6G rather than 1G.

I started deleting GBs of stuff from:
but df did not reduce from 95% so I looked more closely and found
# du -s -BG 20180216

# du -s -BG 20180216/phil/*
Where has ~37GB disappeared to? There are no files held open and
I have successfully umounted and re-mounted the partition - what
is going on?
That "du -s -BG 20180216/phil/*" is ignoring any "dot"
files/directories under 20180216/phil .
It's better to leave out the "-s" option and use the "--max-depth"
option to limit the depth of the display.
du -BG --max-depth=1 20180216/phil
Damn, I should have thought of that - normally, outside of .config,
there would not be much in my dot dirs - but I had been
experimenting with cryptocurrency nodes . .
Thanks for the useful tips!
Just one question on this, is the scaling that the -BG screwing
around with the results of du as shown below?
bash-4.4$ du -s -BG /home/steve
bash-4.4$ du -s -BG /home/steve/*
du -s -BG /home/steve/workspace/*
Of course it is. Any size greater than 0 and not exceeding 1GB will
show as 1G. It's answering the question, "How many blocks 1GB in size
would it take to hold this?" Anything of non-zero size will take at
least 1 such block.
So, your "workspace" directory contains 8 things, none of which is
larger than 1G, and the total space for all of them is also less than 1G.
