- How do I free up disk space? 18 answers
I've recently just installed Ubuntu 16 as a dualboot with Windows 10. I gave the partion around 20Gb when asked during the install process. I haven't really used it all that much yet now I can't download or even do some basic commands as there is no space available.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 7.8G 0 7.8G 0% /dev tmpfs 1.6G 9.5M 1.6G 1% /run /dev/sda6 5.8G 5.8G 0 100% / tmpfs 7.8G 21M 7.8G 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 7.8G 0 7.8G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda8 9.8G 1.1G 8.3G 11% /home /dev/sda1 256M 51M 206M 20% /boot/efi tmpfs 1.6G 64K 1.6G 1% /run/user/1000 /dev/sda3 209G 113G 97G 54% /media/myfullname/TIH0435382
I see that my "/" directory is full but I'm just wondering why it is so small relative to the amount assigned and how that works given my "/home" is relatively empty in comparison. Can I change it to use my /home directory for downloads?
If anyone could help me fix this it would be much appreciated.
