    Storage issue

    Hello everyone

    my problem is that my file explorer says that there's only 1.5 gb free space. however, in windows, i've more than 100 gb of free space. i tried to enlarge my partition using gparted but gparted only shows the /dev/sda1 on host wich is the windows partition that uses the whole disk. does anyone know how to enlarge my linux partition? i'm using ubuntu 10.04 installed using wubi.

    fdisk -l:
    Code:
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xfc2b36ae
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1       30402   244196352    7  HPFS/NTFS
    df -h
    Code:
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0             17G   15G  1.2G  93% /
    none                  998M  296K  998M   1% /dev
    none                 1003M  1.6M 1001M   1% /dev/shm
    none                 1003M  196K 1002M   1% /var/run
    none                 1003M     0 1003M   0% /var/lock
    none                 1003M     0 1003M   0% /lib/init/rw
    /dev/sda1             233G  101G  133G  44% /host

    I guess this is a wubi install and not a dual boot (so no other partitions). I don't know if it's possible to resize a wubi install (it's my impression that it's not possible).

    You can post the output of
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    and
    Code:
    df -h
    So somebody can verify.
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.

    Can't help you with wubi. You might be able to cleanup a bit

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    Try a search:
    resize wubi installed ubuntu

    Just the friendly advise to make backups first (data in both windows and ubuntu)
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.
