Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drive Space Planning For 10.04 LTS?

Oct 16, 2010

When I install and update software on Ubuntu, what is the location of those installation files. I'm going to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with 30 GB and wanna update huge collection of software. Is it enough or I need more space?

My plan is :
boot = 130MB
swap = 4096 MB
/ = 26000MB

Should I need separation of root(/). Like: /user, /tmp etc. If, then which media needs more space?? OR what should be the best choice?

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drive With 0 Space On It

Jan 24, 2010

I downloaded the Ubuntu installer for windows and it gave me a pop-up saying:
256MB of memory are required for installation. Only 233MB are available. Installation may fail in such circumstances. Do you wish to continue anyway?
This is an odd situation because when I finished installation of Ubuntu the first time (I uninstalled it,) it wasn't responsive and said my hard drive had 0 space on it. I still have about 23GB left on my disk. How do I clear out space so the installation can work properly?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Lose Space From Portioning The Hard Drive?

Mar 10, 2010

I need to install Ubuntu inside of Windows XP, but the installer ask me to enter an (installation size) that should vary between 3 to 30GBs. I have an internal hard disk of 60GBs with 30GBs free. My question is if I allocated 30GBs for Ubuntu, would I be able to use this space in both Windows and Ubuntu? The only reason that I'm using the Wubi method is because I don't wand to lose space from portioning the hard drive.

Installation :: Changing The Hard Drive Space On Windows XP And Ubuntu 9.04 Partitions?

Sep 14, 2009

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my latop. I have an older 80 gig HP laptop with Windows XP. Currently, i have XP as the NTFS drive and it takes up about 72 gigs of space, the swap drive for ubuntu is about 256 MB and the ext-3 drive is 2.5 gigs. However, i have no more hard drive space to run or instal any programs on Ubuntu. So what i need to do is decrease the NTFS drive as i still have over 30 gigs of free space on my laptop and increase the ext3 drive to about 10 or 15 gigs and increase the swap drive?

Ubuntu :: Running Out Of Hard Drive Space

Jun 13, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto my laptop and then upgraded it to Ubuntu 10.4. I've added some software packages along the way, such as MythTV and several smaller apps, but have not gone crazy in adding apps. I have a 160GB hard drive.I ran out of disk space recording a World Cup game and was surprised. I deleted all of the MythTV recordings and ran Computer Janitor and now I have only about 50GB of free space! It is not my primary computer, so I don't have a bunch of videos, music, pr pictures on it.

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.4 to a USB flash drive and it has only 3.7GB occupied on the drive.Any recommendations of why I have over 100GB on the hard drive and any cures on how to clear out unneeded files?

Hardware :: USB Hard Drive - Out Of Space

Sep 10, 2010

I added a 250Gig external USB drive to an old laptop I'm running Ubuntu 6.06 on so I can transfer some big files. It was NSTF and did mount but would only mount as read only. I changed the partition to ext3 with mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1. I was copying right along when about 680 Megs I get a message i'm out of space. A df doesn't show my usb drive. fstab doesn't show it either. Nothing under fdisk -l either. I can list change to the mount /mnt/usbdrive just fine and get a list. Did I miss a step somewhere when I partitioned? How can I tell how much space is on that drive? I try to do everything with a command line.

Ubuntu :: Planning On Using The Rest As A Data Drive?

Apr 13, 2011

I will admit i dont know how partitions work in ubuntu. I installed 10.10 on a fresh disk with just 40gb for the OS. I was planning on using the rest as a data drive.

[Code]...

If i go places > computer i do see a drive "250GB harddisk: 189gb filesystem"... I assume this is the free space mounted. However, inside that folder is "lost & found" with a x on it and i dont have permissions to write to the folder/space. I'm just looking for some advice on how i can use/access this free space. I have gparted live cd and i've tried several things but 2bh i don't know what i am doing.

Ubuntu :: Merge Hard Drive Space Without Reinstalling 9.04?

Mar 10, 2010

I currently have Ubuntu 9.04 installed on my HP Pavilion A1213W alongside Windows XP. Problem is, I no longer need the XP partition (finally) but I would like to reclaim the rest of the hard drive for Ubuntu.

I'm planning on wiping the XP partition with GParted and then (hopefully) I can merge the unallocated space with my existing 9.04 partition without having to reinstall Ubuntu and lose all my stuff. Is there a way to do this? I have nothing to back my hard drive up to other than a 2 gig flash drive.

Ubuntu :: Wubi Lost Hard Drive Space?

May 2, 2010

I installed Wubi 9.10 on my windows 7 net-book and it failed to install, so I found a tutorial and tried again to install Wubi. My problem now is it failed a second time now because I did two attempts of 30 gig installs I am missing 60 gigs hard drive space and cant figure out how to recover the lost space. I have uninstalled Wubi / Ubuntu from programs but still no recovery. It needs to be recovered so I can dual boot properly given that I use Ubuntu and Windows

Ubuntu :: Taking Up Extra Space In Hard Drive?

Jan 9, 2011

How much space does Ubuntu 10.04 take?

I have a 320 GB HDD I use for data apart from the regular HDD for the OS. Of course when you go to format it, it's actually 298GB. So I made a 248 GB partition, ext4 for ubuntu data, and a 50GB partition for Windows.

It shows as 248.01 GiB in size in GParted, with 217.27 GiB used. 30.75GiB unused.

When I go to Computer, right click on the partition, click Properties, it says Total capacity 244.1 GB, 18.3 GB free, 225.8 GB Used.

So:

1) Why does GParted show it as 248GB and the Properties as 244 GB?

2) More importantly: Why does Gparted show I've used 217.27 GBs, while the Properties show I've used 225.8 GB? What's going on there?

Ubuntu :: 1tb Hard Drive Free Space Gone (10.10 64bit)

Feb 9, 2011

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?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Partition Hard Drive But There Is No Free Space Available?

Feb 24, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Re-sized An Iso With K9copy - Missing Hard Drive Space

Sep 18, 2010

This is not a huge deal but I have missing hard drive space, I re-sized an iso with k9copy I then used mv to move it to the other iso like so:

Code: mv this.iso that.iso which moved and renamed it, however I did not get any drive space back by effectively "deleting" the first iso. So my question is do I have an unnamed iso file floating around that cannot be deleted?

Fedora :: Unable To Use Free Space In Hard Drive.

Jul 28, 2009

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.

find out the total amount of free unused partition space in a hard drive?

reason:

-- 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.

Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.
