Ok, so today i installed ubuntu 10.10 (im loving itt!!!!) I partitioned my drive so i have 60gb free for ubuntu (ps my dual boot is windows 7 (C) ubuntu (U) (C | U)) and now i go into windows 7 and it tells me on drive U: (ubuntu) i have 60 gb of free space. but when i launch ubuntu and click: Places > Computer > Right-click on File System > Click properties. it tells me i have 13 gb free space? i really need my 60gb of space. PLEASE HELP ME!! :mad:

My Setup is:
Ubuntu 32-Bit 10.10
Packard Bell Laptop

Just to let you know I have 64-bit windows 7 and 32-bit ubuntu this might be the problem...? Anyway, leave answers below!


EDIT--
I now have 64bit ubuntu and i realised my space was different becuase when i installed it i put it at the normal 17gb i later realised this is not how much space you want the setup to fill, but how much space is on your partition! thanks for the help anyway guys ;)

I doubt if Windows 7 will be unable to calculate the exact disk space on an ext3/ext4 filesystem as it doesn't support any of them natively.

You need to post more details. Please post the output of


sudo fdisk -l


df -h

32-bit, 64-bit conflict is not considered as both the OS run independent of each other :-)

Sorry, i dont get all this "code" stuff and what to do with it could you explain it to me? and i tried uninstalling ubuntu and remaking the partition to have 70gb but ubuntu still says 13gb!

go to terminal from Application > Accessories > Terminal

And then run those two commands one by one. Copy the output from terminal and paste in http://paste.ubuntu.com and share the link here.

No need to paste it somewhere else. Just paste the output here directly in your post.

outcome:

sudo fdisk -l = hussain@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for hussain:

df -h = hussain@ubuntu:~$ df -h

WAIT! I go to Apps > Accessories > Disk Usage Analyser. And it says i have 64.1 gb left! but i go back to computer right click file system and it still says 13gb. WTF? whats wrong with my ubuntu. i love linux and need more space could anyone explain whats going on and which ones right. remember i said before i dual-boot to windows 7 and it tell me i have 64.1gb so.... is the file system wrong. or is the disk usage space app wrong? im so confused! :(
