Hi there, after much searching I can't seem to find anybody else with this problem!
I run a dual boot machine between Win XP and FC6, with an 80GB SATA hard drive. Recently, with all the software stability enchancements in FC, I decided to make my system primarily Fedora, so resized my NTFS partition to about 30GB, leaving a 3.7GB FAT partition, where I keep the Fedora CD iso images for install purposes.
I then used the lvm gui in fedora to add the unused space to my volume group.
Finally, I used a knoppix live CD to run lvextend, increasing my LogVol00 (which should contain my whole filesystem) to take up the rest of the disk.
I should now have 46.56GB of total space available to fedora, and indeed lvm seems to think i do;
LV VG Attr LSize Origin Snap% Move Log Copy%
LogVol00 VolGroup00 -wi-ao 46.56G
LogVol01 VolGroup00 -wi-ao 1.00G
However, df shows this;
[root@aibr ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
8.0G 6.2G 1.4G 83% /
/dev/sda3 99M 16M 78M 17% /boot
tmpfs 252M 0 252M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 26G 24G 2.3G 92% /ntfs
It seems that everything else on the system agrees that I only have 3GB left, as when I tried to copy a 7GB backup file over it told me I didn't have enough space.
Where has my space gone?!
Sorry if this is something really obvious, but I just can't understand why I'm getting two different results!
Many thanks in advance.
