Hi @John_Davis!

You may login via SSH and use sudo raspi-config
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 ext4-formatted one.

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.
