Persaonal storage file is getting full


Hello and goog evening!

I always get the following statement on top of the dwsktop:

Warning: Personal storage file getting full, strongly recommend you resize it or delete files!

I run puppy from a 8 GB USB-Stick and there are 6.6 GB free on this drive.
How shall i resize and what delete?

From MENU-Utility select Resize Personal storage file.
You will be given an option of how much bigger you want it to be.
When you reboot, the pupsave file will be resized.
I have had a pupsave file that was around 3 gigs after a few resizes.

sorry, but i cant find this menu-top,
perhaps it is hidden in another menue-item?
There in the Menue Utility is a lot of Items, but nothing with "resize" in it....

What version of Puppy are you running?
I am running 4.3.1 and it and version 4.2.1 both have an option to Resize personal storage file.
You find it by clicking Menu then clicking on Utility and about 3/4 of the way down the list, there should be
Resize personal storage file.
That is the one to use to increase the size of your pupsave file.

Can you find that option?

Well, I am running 4.1.2......and I don't find this part. Now I think i will upgrade to 4.3.
But I love this Macpup version which I have. Is there a way to upgrade this macpup 4.1.2 to 4.3?
