I don't really know where to post this, so bear with me as i find my way around the forums please.

I went to go put my music into my music folder, but i only have 1gb free space. I have looked at the properties, but no luck finding anything out. Anyone know why it is only allowing me to have 1gb? I have a 500gb hard drive, and 140 allocated to ubuntu.

Can we see the output of
df -hTin terminal please. It will show the size of partitions, the current use and available space.

I am confused!! Are you running that command from a live CD/USB? That is how it appears to be according to your output.

Are you sure you actually installed ubuntu to a hard disk? Can you now show the output please of
sudo fdisk -l(lower case L at the end) either from a live version or a hard disk install, both will give the info I'm looking for.

Given the above, you have installed it using WUBI, where the Ubuntu "disk" is a file inside the windows drive. From your previous post, it looks like it's only 17GB. Which is fine for the OS of an Ubuntu install, but you'll need to keep music etc on another partition. You can perfectly well leave it where it is in the windows file system and access it from Ubuntu.

Did you mean to install it that way?

Wubi is not a full partitioned install. It is just a file running inside a windows NTFS partition to give you an extended test on whether you like Ubuntu or not. It is easy then to uninstall as you can just delete the file or uninstall like a windows program (which it is not).

wubi has limits on how large it can be:

Agostino: Wubi actually wasn’t designed to do long-term installations. The main aim was really to let people try out Ubuntu with confidence. Normally, users that start with Wubi tend to upgrade to a full installation to a dedicated partition at the next release cycle.
