Above is terminal output. I realize that I can not down load files because of the low space on /dev/loop0. But, I do not know how to fix. Would like to use part of /dev/sda5, and /dev/sda3 is Windows 7; /dev/sdc1 is an ext. HD.

You should add a small description of what you have running there, especially details about the loop partition. The output of sudo losetup -a would certainly be helpful. –  bseibold Aug 9 '12 at 6:53
    
$ sudo losetup -a [sudo] password for owner: /dev/loop0: [0805]:81 (/host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk) $ By the way what does this do? –  John Nicholson Aug 9 '12 at 14:39
    
There's a similar question at askubuntu.com/questions/2465/… but comments say that newer information is available at various links. –  John S Gruber Aug 9 '12 at 19:06
    
Ran: sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean gksu baobab This gave me: $ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/loop0 17G 13G 3.1G 81% / ...(skip others) owner@ubuntu:~$ So, I gained 20%, I would like to gain another 60% by moving thing to other locations. I was not sure where to start with wubi , however I now know that it was installed because of the comments with the above commands. But, I did not know what to do still. I then read the comments from John S. Gruber. –  John Nicholson Aug 9 '12 at 23:17

I think you are running Ubuntu with wubi. Is that true?

If so, please refer to How can I check how much space there is left on WUBI versus how much space it takes on my HDD? for information about what you can do when you are short on space.

There's a link on that question to the wubi guide here.

For resizing the space available you should refer to this.

wubi not sure. How to check for it? –  John Nicholson Aug 9 '12 at 17:12
    
I went to the "How can I check how..." page, Ran: sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean and Ran: gksu baobab and the other commmand line commands. –  John Nicholson Aug 9 '12 at 18:38
    
Were you able to free up some space? re: wubi. It doesn't look like you booted from an Ubuntu Live CD or memory stick to install Ubuntu. Did you install Ubuntu by downloading and executing the wubi program to install Ubuntu while executing Windows? –  John S Gruber Aug 9 '12 at 18:39

I've added a couple of links to my answer that may help. It would be best if you could mention what you have now done to your queston along with the new size numbers. –  John S Gruber Aug 9 '12 at 18:54
