Please can someone help, i have a 16gb sd card and when i install octopi-stretch-lite-0.15.1 with Etcher it only uses 24mb of the card,how do i get it to use the full card??
please can someone help.
You may login via SSH and use
Advanced Options -> Expand Filesystem
More info you can find here. Advanced Options -> Expand Filesystem
But how you come to just 24 MB used of the SD card?
OctoPi.zip (0.15.1) alone is 567 MB.
If it was installed properly per the instructions, then there should be two partitions on that microSD. If you insert it into either a Windows/OSX computer though, you'll only see the first tiny boot partition but not the other
Expand Filesystem as suggested will expand that second partition but you still won't be able to see it unless you're running Raspbian or you've mounted that into a Linux box of some kind.
Remote into the Raspberry Pi and run
df -h to see what's what.
pi@octopi:~ $ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/root 7.1G 3.0G 3.8G 44% / devtmpfs 434M 0 434M 0% /dev tmpfs 438M 0 438M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 438M 6.2M 432M 2% /run tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 438M 0 438M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/mmcblk0p1 42M 22M 20M 54% /boot tmpfs 88M 8.0K 88M 1% /run/user/1000
In my case, I'm staring at 7.1GB on an 8GB microSD. Notice how the
/boot paritition then is that mysterious 42MB partition.
@Ewald_Ikemann It's no longer necessary to manually expand the filesystem, octopi has a script that does it for you on the first boot.
