After a fresh install of Ubuntu mate my home directory only has 230MB but I have 50GB available. How can I fix this problem ?

    Are you sure you installed something? From the mounting info above it feels like you use Ubuntu from live CD/DVD – wk. Feb 21 at 13:23
  • Did you remove the LiveUSB when you rebooted? – user535733 Feb 21 at 13:32
  • Yes, I don't have anything plugged in. I installed Ubuntu 3 days ago but didn't had the time to test it. It's dual boot if it helps. I created a 60GB+ partition just for Ubuntu and installed it there. – Parch Feb 21 at 14:18

    Does this answer your question? Check how space is distributed on a Linux system – N0rbert Feb 21 at 16:21
