How to use system capacity is strange.

When I put 119GB SD card with OS installed in Raspberry Pi, for some reason 94GB was used as system capacity from the beginning. I think it strange to use 94 GB on the system. Does anyhow have any good ideas because I want to use 4 to 5 GB out of 94 GB as the system storage and use the remaining capacity as the user capacity?

    The system size is 2GB, there is an unallocated space on your microSD card.
    You can use Gparted to extend/resize your data partition to be able to make use of that unallocated space.

  • The installer can't currently create the userdata partition to always fill up all remaining space on the SD card. So it will create a smaller partition and everything that is left unused is shown by Android as "used".

    As roxette suggests, you can use a tool like gparted to expand the last partition to fill up the card.

  • HI @schake,
    Is there any new release coming soon?.

  • Yes, it will be today with a bunch of bugfixes (GPU memory leaks, update problems, video playback, security patches and others). We also have an idea for module-based extensions, which will probably enable VNC support. But that will probably take a couple of weeks.

  • Thanks Igor,
    I will wait till VNC is fixed. :smile:

    thank you for your answer. How can I deal with this case? There was not unallocated capacity.

    That red circle with the exclamation mark on your data partition means that you have an unallocated space on that partition.

    I had that too as in previous screenshot but it's now fixed.

    Can you double click on your data partition then post a screenshot?

    By the way, that screenshot you posted is after you expanded your data partition?

    The screenshot you posted is the screenshot before extending the data partition.
    When I tried to take a screenshot as I was told by roxette, I found a document to be a hint at the lower left, so I was able to solve it when I ran it. Thank you very much.@roxette @schake
