    Angry Hard Drive Space!???

    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!!

    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

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    Code:
    df -h
    32-bit, 64-bit conflict is not considered as both the OS run independent of each other

    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.
