    Hard disk space Problems. **PLEASE HELP**

    I have ChrUbuntu 12.04 for ChromeOS. When installing Ubuntu I gave my laptop 10 GB of memory. I then realized that that was not enough after installing different programs. I don't understand why it says I don't have enough space when I have a 305 GB Hard Drive. I mounted that and everything but it didn't work. I tried to repartition my disk but that didn't work either. I also wiped my computer, did a powerwash in ChromeOS then reinstalled Ubuntu, but it did not ask me for a memory amount. I have tried really everything in my power to try to get more memory but I honestly can't. Could someone explain to me how I could get that memory back like I'm a VERY stupid person. I know tons about computers and I'm good at terminal (just not reading the help sections, I just can't do it its too confusing) and I can edit files pretty well and I know my way around. Could someone please help me?

    Hi raedentraut24.

    Could you open a terminal, and post the results of these commands?
    Code:
    df -h
    
    df -i
    
    sudo fdisk -l
    
    mount -l
    Regards.

    I've changed your thread title a bit since your question is about hard disk space, not memory.

    Re: Hard disk space Problems. **PLEASE HELP**

    You still have 4.2G available on your root partition. That's enough for lots of software.

    I would recommend:
    • migrate your home to the /dev/sda1 partition, and then mount it as /home, and
    • using a live media, like the Ubuntu installation CD/USB, increase the size of the root partition to something like 25G.

    Let us know if you need more help with that.
    Regards.
