View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Disk Size

July 2nd, 2012, 07:17 PM
Hi there,
Hope someone can help. I have Windows 2008 running Hyper-V and I have installed Ubuntu as a virtual machine. On the virtual machine, i have mounted an external USB drive.

On the Windows side, it shows the size of the Ubuntu hard drive to be about 70GB. I know that the external drive has about 60GB of data on this.

My question is that, does Ubuntu add the external drive to it and therefore shows us the size of the actual installation + that of the mounted drive? Hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.

Hey ashkot,

I'm not quite sure what you mean. If you could answer these, it would better help myself and others:

1) What size is the external hard drive?
2) What size does Windows report Ubuntu to be?
