Installed NCP straight to SSD, I let raspi-config expand root filesystem, nothing happens

I started a new NCP installation straight to a 1 TB SSD. (1.54.0, later upgraded to 1.54.2)

Everything works but I can’t use my entire disk. I tried to expand root filesystem with raspi-config. I get no error message, but nothing happens after reboot. I used Raspberry Pi Imager to put the Image on my disk, without any settings.

Now I used the same disk on my old installation, without a hitch, so it is fine.

lsblk gives me this.

Hello, this is perfectly normal because usable space is always less. See https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/1-tb-931-gb-hard-drive/

Thanks, but it’s only using a quarter of a gig from 1 TB. Which wasn’t the case in my last installation with the same disk.

I was thinking that I perhaps could move the Nextcloud installation to /dev/sda2

But then, why isn’t it so straight out of the box?

I found that I can move the directory in ncp-config, but aren’t all directories on the same partition (/dev/sda1)?

My friend,

I am sorry! I misunderstood. The partition is used, it just works differently than it did the last time I set up a server. Everything is fine!
