View Full Version : [ubuntu] Home Folder Way Too Small

May 18th, 2008, 06:42 PM
Even though "df -h" says I have plenty of room, the program "Disk Usage Analyzer" thinks differently.

It says that my home folder is 60% full and only contains 4.1 GB. This is not good; my music will fill that up quickly.

Is "Disk Usage Analyzer" making a mistake?

If not, is there any way to make my home folder bigger so I can fit more music in it?

I think you may be misinterpreting the output. I believe it's telling you your home contains 4.1GB which is 60% of the total of all your usage, not 60% of available space.

For instance, mine says 99% but that's because my home has 388GB of files in it out of 392 total.
