    /dev/sda is a device name in Linux. Since no number is given this means the entire hard disk detected by the Bios.

    To see the characteristic of files you must mount a partition on the filing tree of Linux. The common point is /mnt or /media.

    You also need to be in root (Admin) in order to mount a partition so if you want to see all the files and their characteristics in partition sda1 the commands in terminal, say in Ubumtu family, are
    Code:
    sudo su
    mkdir /mnt/please_mount_here
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/please_mount_here
    ls -l /mnt/please_mount_here
    The 1st line is to become super user or root user
    2nd line is to create a subdirectory
    3rd line is to mount a hardware on the specified subdirectory
    4th line is to list the files in details.
