    Question Ubuntu 11.04. How much disk space does it take up once it's installed?

    How much disk space does Ubuntu 11.04 take up once installed?

    A default installation will be about 2.2 to 2.4 GB, but you'll need more hard disc space than that. I believe the 11.04 installer won't install to something less than 4GB - if I remember correctly.

    How much space were you thinking of making the Ubuntu root partition?

    I forgot to say it's already installed. Windows 7 used to be there but I replaced it with Ubuntu 11.04.

    I installed it off the CD and Ubuntu is all I have on the hard drive period. My HDD is 160GB.

    I'm just wondering how much it takes up now that it's there.

    Open System Monitor. (System menu in classic gnome, or from the shutdown button -> System Settings in Unity). Click on the File Systems tab. That will give you the size and usage of each of your mounted partitions.

    Here's what it shows:




    It shows 126.3GB used. I presume the operating system itself isn't that big, or is it?

    When you say Windows 7 used to be on there, how did you remove it ?

    is this a fresh install or you been using it for a while

    I booted with the Ubuntu CD and hit 'install'. When done, Windows 7 was gone and Ubuntu was there.

    I did this about 5-6 days ago.

    I am thinking that the Windows directory and its files are still there possibly.

    Or you have downloaded lots of files in the last 5-6 days

    Well, I certainly haven't downloaded lots of files.

    I have a boot CD and I could use that and see if anything besides Ubuntu is on there. It has various utilities and a Windows-like explorer on it so I can see.

    I'm wondering something. Earlier I tried to make a clone backup and did it wrong. It never got saved to the portable hard drive and I had wondered if by accident it got saved onto Ubuntu somewhere. But the question is WHERE. I wonder if that's where the space went. How can I look for that though...

    why do you need to do that, just browse your / with nautilus.

    See if anything like a windows directory is there or any folders from your previous installation
