I have one 500GB HDD. I did not formated it, but have selected "Erase disk and install Ubuntu 18.04" option.

Now, when I open System Monitor it shows 70 partitions. And 490,7 GB one is shown 16 times.

What is happening?

  • "70 partitions"? Where? I see loop devices. Loop devices are NOT partitions; those are snaps. – Rinzwind Jul 7 '18 at 20:12
  • Hi Против Глобал! This are mainly snap devices. There consists a problem that more than 2 snaps are kept. See the following link: askubuntu.com/q/1047456/790920 – abu_bua Jul 7 '18 at 20:14
  • Thanks. Well, how could I have known? I don't even know what those "loop devices" are. Never heard of such thing. And you all talk about them like they are something obvious. I have been using Ubuntu since 11.10, and I have never seen this. It had always only been partitions. – Против Глобал Jul 8 '18 at 10:30
  • I did not find the solution on how to set it to show only partitions in system monitor. :/ – Против Глобал Jul 8 '18 at 10:33
  • Yup. that's the way it is nowadays. Use mount | grep /dev/sd in a terminal instead. – Fabby Jul 12 '18 at 19:55
