  • How exactly did you free up the space? If you deleted something, what did you delete? You stated using a liveusb, you can use that to recover some files from the disk in the meantime. – Kryštof Píštěk Jun 13 '17 at 16:10
  • i free up the space by draging the partition bar from right to left @KryštofPíštěk – Vaibhav Mandlik Jun 14 '17 at 17:14
  • Did you drag the whole partition, or just a bar which shows how big it is? – Kryštof Píštěk Jun 14 '17 at 17:17
  • I drag it half of the partition @Kryštof Píštěk – Vaibhav Mandlik Jun 17 '17 at 10:27
