Solved: Have 41.0 GB Of Free Space But.

A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. I took a screenshot for whatever it might reveal (see below) The grub menu only shows the 12.04 install but not the 14.04 at all.

You can then change owner:group with the terminal command. Advertisements do not imply our endorsement of that product or service. If it went pear-shaped, this would only be the second HDD failure of my life. Also, FWIIW, the file browser/Places shows the UUID of the device at the very top of its little window when you click on it after mounting, and if you right-click it https://forums.techguy.org/threads/solved-have-41-0-gb-of-free-space-but.974420/

Never had a problem before. This example is to reset /home to typical defaults, but I use same permissions & ownership for all my data partitions. Then deleted all other partitions except sda2 (with 12.04 on it).

  1. Co-incidental that you should post as I am in process of following your very instructions as to data location.
  2. I know malnutrition recommended that it be removed on my laptop to save space, don't remember if I also removed that function on this desktop, but it's not showing in the

oldfredMarch 15th, 2016, 01:50 PMWhen you say mode, do you mean boot mode or UEFI or BIOS. Or try the latest MATE version 15.10, or even MATE 16.04 beta1.

If the Ubuntu 12.04 boots, that seems like a good sign, and the problem is isolated to the booting of Ubuntu MATE. https://pchelpforum.net/threads/free-space-on-ssd-c-drive-drops-about-10-15-gb-every-hour-win-7-pro-sp1-64-bit.14453/ About an hour later free space now 149 GB. Also, " set ownership & permissions" sets my knees trembling. As it went through the RAID drive checking it showed the CD/DVD, but still will not boot the Live CD or the 12.04 that it normally shows in grub.

How much RAM and what video card? New motherboard supports the new M.2 form factor. Comments are # or older code, perhaps my other system. Easier with Boot-Repair in that case, but you could also use Boot-Repair and its advanced options from any of your working installs.

In the indexing options box, click Modify and uncheck any SSDs you may have. If not, what else would be helpful? As soon as I can get U Mate installed, if ever, I will get another HDD (if needed) and try it with a reinstall.

It has done this 1 time(s).

But you really cannot go back to old install as programs will convert data to newer version, but may not work in older version. Should be AHCI, not IDE nor RAID.

Do you mean that during an additional install (different version, distro, upgrade, etc), and using Something Else, you would identify the /home partition on the HDD as the location of /home What mode are drives set then? No problem about focus. Also how does one know if it is BIOS or UEFI?

To the extent that what I do now makes the next upgrade go easier, that is very important. This morning, I attempted to wake up the computer, but it would not come to life. Then the separate data partition is better and can be mounted in each install. For my own use I found repeating the steps with each install repetitive, so saved my history of commands into a bash file.

So, with reluctance to quit, but being realistic, I would just like to thank all those who have tried to help me through this, especially OldFred, DennisN, SeijiSensei, and grahammechanical (and I think that sda has GPT (GUID partition table) and not MSDOS partitioning. oldfredMarch 21st, 2016, 02:03 PMI normally use grub to directly boot the ISO with its loopmount, bit more advanced.

Ubuntu MATE is an excellent choice. oldfredMarch 20th, 2016, 02:26 PMThe Boot-Repair Summary report dumps most of the info you want on boot. Most of reasons for installer not showing Windows, any partition type error http://www.rodsbooks.com/missing-parts/index.htmlAFAIK, windows has never been installed on either the SSD or the HDD. If you want your three installs, you should just use 25GB for / (root) and a shared data partition.
