factgasm Posted August 14, 2013 Share Posted August 14, 2013 I am a newbie at this so please go easy. I just bought a brand new Sandisk 32GB USB Cruzer Blade and then followed the instructions on ubuntu.com for making it a bootable USB. I followed the instructions exactly. All that worked perfectly, however on booting from the USB drive I noticed that there is only 1.1GB for room which Ubuntu will allow me to use on it. Forgive my naivety, but I would have expected more memory available than that given its a 32GB drive? What do I have to do increase the available space? I have looked at Gparted but I don't think that partitions is the issue. Can the Ubuntu installed on that USB actually make use of all 32GB or just a small fraction of it? I was hoping to have Ubuntu on this USB, then a vitual machine with Linux Mint 15 inside with hacking tools within that. I saw somewhere that the maximum is 4GB. Is that right? If so, then that is not much use. Your help is much appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
