    Exclamation Insufficient Hard drive Space?

    I'm currently trying to install World of Warcraft on Ubuntu 12.10, and I finally got my computer to go to the install screen, but when I click install, it says
    There is insufficient space on your hard drive. Please clear some space or select a different drive and try again. 22.0GB required.
    I don't have a clue as to why this is showing. I'm almost positive that I have more than a few hundred gigs in my Ubuntu partition. Any help would be great, Thanks in advance.

    Wow, thats one big game. Anyhow; take a look at your HDD space.

    Open a terminal and enter:

    df -h

    I've tried everything I know to do, so if anyone has ANY suggestions, PLEASE let me know. Do you think I could have to do a fresh install of Ubuntu again? I also can't copy things withing my system. I tried copying a file from a CD and it says "There is not enough space on the destination. Try to remove files to make space." Gosh, what can I do?

    I was assuming that /dev/sda3 was my Ubuntu partition, but I was most likely wrong...
    No, but I'll check on it.

    What you appear to have is a wubi install (ubuntu inside windows). If this is what you have, a wubi install is limited to 30G max and you have only 4.2G left open.

    You could run WoW on Windows and install it there.
    Or split up the Partition and install Ubuntu natively if you want to use it as a OS in future. The option to "take" space from your Windows Partition is given during the Ubuntu setup.
