1. Expand Filesystem

If you installed Raspbian using the NOOBS installer, then you can ignore this section as the file system was expanded automatically during installation. However, if you imaged Raspbian directly to an SD card yourself, then part of the card will be unused; this can be any amount over 3GB.

Choosing this option will expand your installation to fill the rest of the SD card. You will need to reboot the Raspberry Pi to make this space available. Note there is no confirmation – selecting the option begins the partition expansion immediately.

  1. Start at the raspi-config main menu.
    Expand Filesystem

    Expand Filesystem

  2. Select Expand Filesystem. A message stating the Root partition has been resized. The filesystem will be enlarged upon next reboot will be displayed.
    Root partition has been resized. The filesys will be enlarged upon next reboot

    Root partition has been resized. The filesys will be enlarged upon next reboot

  3. Press Enter. The message will close.

When you reboot the Raspberry Pi, the file system will be automatically resized.

  1. I’m in the process of installing UniFi on a RasPi but will go to bed now (after 1AM) and finish tomorrow. Later I want to install it on an OrangePiPC if I can.
    Thanks for the info 🙂
