ubuntu took dard disk space strangely...

Asked by Mr. MInhaj on 2009-08-13

i re-installed ubuntu 9.04 today.
Before installing i formatted the 43GB target drive(where ubuntu is going to be installed) to made it is empty.
After installing ubuntu i saw that 39 GB is free in Filesystem .
But the most strange thing is that, after reboot i saw that only 22 GB free space, I installed no packages or copied no data.
HOW IT POSSIBLE ?

you could use baobab to see where all the space went. if really no space was taken up, use gparted to check the space assigned to each distribution. keep in mind though that you probably have some swap partition as well that takes up space.

let me know what you've found out :-)

thanks ANDREA,
baobab and g-parted showed that no additional spaces are used, my tension gone.
Great thanks.
