While copying files from an older version of Ubuntu I keep getting this error message
'There is not enough space on the destination. Try to remove files to make space.'
with additional info
'There is 2.1 GB available, but 30.2 GB is required.'

How do I make the 'receiving' folder big enough to accept what I'm copying?

Add another storage device to your system for additional disk space or resize one of your disk partitions using GParted (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gparted) if possible.

used gparted live to format a partition which had I THINK an old 9.04 distro on it. However, when I reboot I get
"Error File not found.
Grub Rescue> -"
I've obviously screwed something - but what do I do now? Help please.

Okay, so if you formatted the partition where you had the file, it's gone now. Other than that, do you still have a working Ubuntu system to boot up with?

Yes, I have a full 11.10 on HDD and also the .iso on CD and USB stick.
