not enough room left after installation

Asked by Piet van der Lugt on 2009-02-11

After installation of 8.10 on my laptop I have almost no room left. I reserved 12 GB and only 540 MB left now. My desktop used only almost 7 GB.
When I look in systemmonitor I see:
/dev/sda5/ ext 3 11.9GB free 543 MB
/dev/sda1/media/disk/fuseblk/ 94.3 GB free 49,6 GB
It look like Ubuntu imported several Windows files. I have Vista besides Ubuntu.
How can I create more room for Ubuntu?

Maybe you have used the option import Users files from Vista.

So these files are duplicated now, i mean you have it on Vista and Ubuntu,
simply delete the imported files in your Ubuntu personal folder, and use it from Vista's partition.

And if you want to re-size partitions boot your pc using the Ubuntu live install cd and use gparted...

So open, from Live cd, Gnome menu: System → Administration → Partition Editor

Hope this helps

Dear sir,

Thanks for your advice. I solved the problem by deleting user files and
using them from the windows partition.

Thanks a lot.
