    No free space

    Hello. This is my first time at this. I have installed 9.04 as a dual boot system. When i made the partition I allocated 100gb to Ubuntu. I have just tried to save a project to my desktop and for some reason I only have 900meg available. I checked all other folders and found that I only have 900meg available to all of them. There is a volume that has 94gb available but I do not have permission to write to it. i have been through all the permissions and granted myself access but I still cannot access the free space. I am as NEW as they come, any help would be greatly appreaciated.

    Re: No free space

    It looks to me as if Ubuntu has been installed and mounted on the wrong partition than what you wanted.

    Did you run this off of a live cd? It must be run off of your host system for (at least) me to interpret it correctly.

    Re: No free space

    when i type in the terminal:

    Code:
    df -h
    I get:

    Code:
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

    /dev/sda3              80G   33G   43G  44% /home
    see how i used the CODE tag? It makes reading the output a lot easier You can just copy and paste it from the terminal here. highlight the data and click on the CODE tag.

    Re: No free space

    I downloaded the ISO from ubuntu main page and installed it . If I run Windows and go into c: I have 850+ gb. I also have an external hard drive connected to the system which is 1tb as well. The hard drive was on my dersktop and i could access it but for some reason it no longer is there. I can see it in the menu places but I cannot mount it.

    I wrote you instructions on how to quote text and code up a few messages above this.


    i noticed you had two swap partitions. You only need on of those if any at all

    also i noticed you had a /host. did you install ubuntu from within windows? if so then you installed ubuntu within your windows C: and not into its own partition that you made for it. if you want to install ubuntu into its own partition, you must boot from the LiveCD and start the installation from there.
