I'm starting to push the limit of my /home directory. My machine is Linux/Windows dual-boot. I need to keep Windows as the machine is not "officially" mine, and so might need to go back at some point to a Windows user. All my normal Windows access is via VirtualBox. I have made my Windows partitions as small as possible, and now have an empty D partition as follows:
It's the D* partition that I would like to add to my home directory. Is there an easy way of doing this, or am I looking at a complete re-install of openSUSE?
I have just installed 11.3 x64. The installation went fine and worked for the first few hours. I ran the online update tool, and now it cannot find grub unless the installation disc is inserted and I select the "boot from hard disc" option.
I have read about the problem of the root partition being back, but not sure that's it.
sda1 - swap sda2 - / sda3 - /home
There used to be a repair tool in the installation disks. I could not find that in this media. Is that still available?
I want to burn a 110MB iso image. When I right-click the file, select "Write to Disc" I got a popup saying: "Blank-CD-R: not enough free space". The same thing occurs with Brasero. The CD-R disc is blank, and I used the same drive unit to burn CDs and DVDs in the past.
Ive opensuse and windows on my laptop. I hardly use windows anymore but I would like to keep it. Im getting warning messages saying that I only have about 75 MB left on linux. Windows has lots of space available (especially the "d" partition which I use for storing stuff in like music and video) but I do not know how to "claim" that partition for for Suse.
I have been missing disc space in my / partion. Was 20Go.I deleted a unsed partition and then increase my / partition to 133 Go.Did this in yast and can see that the partition has this size. But when I restart my suse, the size of the partition remains to 20Go.
I have two 250 GB drives setup with hardware RAID 1. I had on sda and sdb: 20 GB swap, 20 GB /, 198 GB /srv all was good until I started to run out of space on 20 GB /. So I booted the server with Suse 11.3 live cd and reduced the size of 20 GB swap to 10 GB and 198 GB /srv to 150 GB on sda and sdb.
All good so far, then tried to increase 20 GB / to 60 GB, but the Partition setup says the Max Size can be 20 GB, I have checked and I have 42.88 GB of Unpartitioned space. I have rescanned, rebooted, Server is still running fine by the way, but the 42.88 GB of free space is not made available for the expansion of 20 GB /.
Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.
My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:
I have 160gb laptop. i installed vista in c primary partition which is 25gb and installed ubuntu in d primary partition which is 20gb. A remainig for my data. Now i tried to install CENT OS by formatting ubuntu. I inserted CENT OS DVD and restarted and i selected to delete my /dev/sda2 which is showing 20480mb and it shown me free space. but i tried to add partion /boot of 100mb it got added. but, when i am trying to add / of 3000mb in the remaining 20380mb free space it showing an error message that no free space is available.
See "10.4 synaptic package manager error" thread, for more details. Basically, I want to find a way to save my data. To do that, I need to figure out what exactly went wrong. Any of u who really wanna help, see that thread and the 1 mentioned in that thread, in order to extract a reason for all this madness from carefully examining every erroneous step.
find out the available and consumed Hard Disc memory through c/c++ program .I am using Dabian linux 2.6 I am able to get the physical memory size information by reading /proc fileI need to get information of HDD memory throug c/c
I installed Fedora 11 about a week ago. And all was going well until I woke up this morning, and started using it for a little bit. I noticed it was going painfully slow... (almost like Windows Vista >.<) and I started to look for a reason why. Turns out my free space in my filesystem is running out. I have a 500g hard drive, and for some reason my filesystem is only set to use 9gigs...
Why can I only use 9 gigs of my hard drive? And how can I increase that size to something less annoying so I don't have to delete stuff every few days? Also, I'm kinda new to Linux. So if this is a newb question, and you can link me somewhere to get the information, please do. I just spent an hour or so searching google, and using this forums search to no avail.
I currently dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04, before I came back on Ubuntu, I uninstall-ed many programs to free up some space. Before I restarted my computer to boot back into Ubuntu my Internal HD had 43.5GB of free space, and when I booted into Ubuntu I checked the free space and it only showed 7.9GB of free space, did I check the wrong thing? Is 'File System' the Ubuntu equivalent to the C: drive in Windows?
I've just downloaded 10.10, made install USB, removed the partition that used 10.04 (have home on an other partition), started the installation but the choice "install using free space" is removed from the installation. How can I install 10.10 using the free space on harddrive? WHY did they remove the choice "install using free space"
I have a small issue with a 1tb sata drive I've just instlled. It was brand new, and I've install maverick 64bit on it, now I'm a little puzzled about the amount of free space there is on the drive. If I open nautilus it shows the amount of free space in the bottom left section of the screen (see picture-1) This seems a little odd to me, where the hell has all the space gone? my entire home directory is a total of 40.3gb (see picture-2)
I've done some looking about and I can't seem to find out where the space has gone, I had a look at the drive using gparted and this is what I got (see picture-3) If you look at the pictures it seems I'm missing about 320 gb or so, any guesses to where the hell it's gone?
I want to install Ubuntu Karmic Koala using only 12gb of space for the os itself and the rest of my hard drive for free space. How do I do this? I do not have any other os on my computer at all and I do not have access to any other os.Right now my ubuntu installation is taking up 72gb of my hard drive. I have barely any free space.
I just installed a new hard drive with OS X on my iMac G5 PowerPC. The drive size is 1TB. OS X Leopard is currently only using about 80 gigs of that space. For some reason, at the disk preparation from my live PowerPC Ubuntu install, the entire bar is green with only 8kb of (white) free space. I want to partition the computer to add Ubuntu to it, but I don't want to risk partitioning my hard drive and losing any data affiliated with the current o/s installed on it (OS X Leopard). What is the best way to go about doing this? A manual partition?
i installed quake 4 with id software's run file and copied the pk4 files to the folder but anyways, when i deleted the game, the free hard drive space didn't come back. i had 20 gig free before install and when i installed it, i had 18 gig free but then i deleted it and i still have about 18 gig free. it didn't free up any space when i deleted it.
I have problem with my hard drive on Debian. I connected my hard drive as a local drive (NFS) in to Mac OS. Later i deleted some files on that hard drive from my mac but the free space didnt change. It looks like these files moved in to trash or something but i dont know where is it.
I have AMD athlon 64 processor, Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Disk, ASUS A8VMX mother board.With this configuration, I can Install FC7 without any error. But all the latest releases after FC7 is not detecting my Hard disk. Is there any solution to solve this problem? Actually I'm searching for a solution when the FC8 released. Now I have all the later releases from FC8 to FC11 DVD except FC9. But none is working .
find out the total amount of free unused partition space in a hard drive?
-- when i use fdisk to create a new partition; its hard to tell how much free space is available. -- tried searching the net but found no answers. some suggested using cfdisk. -- i don't have cfdisk installed on the centos 5.3 server. i don't think its bundled in the distro any more.
I am trying to create an empty file based on the remaining hard disk space. The problem is that when I create a file that is 1 GB large, the df command shows the remaining space to be only 12 kb smaller than it was before the file was created.

I had Vista on my laptop and then started dual booting with windows.downloaded ubuntu today and installed but just not feeling it. i have looked in add remove programs but its not there. can someone point me in the right direction. How do i remove ubuntu including the grub screen and free the space up on the hard disk because i'm missing 25gb.
I dont want to wipe the whole drive, and i don't want to delete only particular files. I want to completely destroy all data in free space.I've found some articles about secure-delete package for linux that would allow erasing freespace with the command 'sfill,' but I can't find it in the repositories nor through google. This would be ideal but it seems maybe it's debian only.
I am dual booting winxp and opensuse 11.2 on a 80gb harddrive with 3 partitions. first primary conatins xp, second logical and active contains opensuse and third primary holds data. i want to create another partition after /dev/sda3 using the free space from /dev/sda3.can u advise me if it is possible? and if yes, what do i need to consider. here is the output of fdisk -l
Code: Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x285adb1d
I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.
