No hard disk space where I have 150gb unused in /dev/sda5
 
I am running on fedora 13 (dont ask me why!)and when ever I am switching on my computer it tells me there is only 1gb left on the computer. but when I check /dev/sda5 has about 150gb free space. How do I claim this space?

If you open a terminal window and enter
Code:

df -h
what does that show you?

hurryi 06-28-2012 09:18 AM

Could you provide the output of the following commands?
df -h
fdisk -l

as /dev/sda5 is a partition and we have no idea about the filesystem(s) created or not created on it

Can you post the exact error message for "it tells me there is only 1gb left "?

EDDY1 06-29-2012 02:04 AM

/home is 77Gig, 72Gig used, you either have a lot of data, Downloads or refuse to empty trash.

edit

After examining your / has a lot of space, but your /home is getting full, either get rid of unnecessary files or resize using live-cd

Angoni6 06-29-2012 02:09 AM

The message is "The volume 'home' has only 1.8gb disk space remaining. You can free some space by removing removing programs or files or by moving files to another disk or partion"

@ Eddy Yes my home is the one which is full but my hard disk is around 250gb. In this case I am only using 78gb of that. I want to use the whole lot

EDDY1 06-29-2012 02:14 AM

If everything on /home is important use gparted-live & shrink sda2 from the right, move sda3 to the left, grow extended sda4 to the left, then grow sda5 to left filling sda4

You can find out what's taking mob space using du -sh /dev/sda5

Ireally don't think you have a use for 151 Gig /
