    32 Gb SD card not fully used

    I install HS4-Pi in a 32Gb card but after first boot only see this information about file system.

    Where is the rest of the "free" space of the card?

    Code:
    [FONT=Courier New]root@HS4PiV2:~# df -h
    Filesystem     Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root      6.9G 3.1G 3.4G   48% /
    devtmpfs       459M    0 459M    0% /dev
    tmpfs          464M 8.0K 464M    1% /dev/shm
    tmpfs          464M  12M 452M    3% /run
    tmpfs          5.0M 4.0K 5.0M    1% /run/lock
    tmpfs          464M    0 464M    0% /sys/fs/cgroup
    /dev/mmcblk0p6  68M  52M 17M    77% /boot
    tmpfs           93M    0 93M     0% /run/user/0
    root@HS4PiV2:~#[/FONT]

    It's there, just not allocated to any of the filesystems.

    There's a great tool, rpi-clone that you can use to clone your running disk to a new one, larger or smaller (assuming sufficient free space).

      Being a developer, I don't understand how some one can sell a system, that advise us to use a 32Gb SD Card, and them only uses 16Gb.

      And we must try to find out the way to expand the file system to use the full 32Gb card.

      The guys from Homeseer must understand that when some one buys the software don't have to know how to expand the file system, they should include the filesystem expand on first boot. Imagine some one that buy a 128Gb card and them find out that only have 16Gb used in the card.

      So please make a tool to expand the file system because this is a sold software (expensive) and not open source, so us as clients expect that you solve this situations.

        That's gonna be tough to fit on an 8GB card ...

          Looks like HomeSeer needs to update the web pages to reflect that a 16GB card is the minimum requirement for HS4-Pi (and clean up the dead deer. )

          I have always used raspi-config to expand the file system.

            Late to the game but I followed the tutorial here to reclaim unallocated space on my HS4Pi image and it worked flawlessly (I was using a 32GB card):

            Hope it helps someone.

              Bumping this odler thread to the top. Would anyone have any details on how to do this? The link provided by DecaSeer is no longer functional. And the raspi-config option does not work. Thanks for the help.

                Google is your friend. "raspberry pi expand sd card" yields http://cagewebdev.com/raspberry-pi-e...f-the-sd-card/

                  This will not work on NOOBS. HomeSeer Pi image is based on NOOBS.

                    Ugh. Sorry about that. I've always used dd to make a copy and then gparted live to resize.

                        If you really need to expand NOOBS partition, follow this http://dracoy.com/2016/06/26/expandi...pre-installed/

                          If I upgrade from HS3 to HS4, will it update/resize to use the full 32GB?
