Unable to use entirety of hard drive for storage

for some reason my fresh nextcloud installation is not using the entirety of my servers hard drive to store files. I have a 3tb hard drive and nextcloud says that there is only 1GB of space remaining. anyone know why this is happening?

I installed nextcloud using the snap package.

this is also a fresh ubuntu 18 machine.

Just login as admin and go to users. You can configure the storage space that every user can use. Just configure “unlimited” if desired.

Nextcloud itself does not show the actual hdd space but the configured storage space.

i did that, currently i am the only user and the admin one.

i am set to unlimted, but i still cannot upload more than 1GB of data.

this is what the monitoring page of my server reads if this helps.

Thats strange… Do you have multiple partitions / mount points? Nextcloud might only show the free space on the partition that contains the data directory.

This command lists all mount points with the free space on it: df -h

here is the output of that command

when installing ubuntu i did choose the option to partition a whole drive and setup LVM, would that have cause a problem?

also i only have the one physical drive in the server

Maybe it’s a problem with your partition settings.

I fixed the problem. It was a problem with my partition settings. Not a next cloud problem, just a me problem

Can you explain exactly what you did? I am having the same issue here. :frowning:

If you check screenshot from above, partitions were not correctly set. There was no 3TB partition, only small ones. If you have the same issue, please post here output of following commands:

df -h

and

lsblk

dfh lsblk

It is easy :slight_smile:
You have 16 GB SD card mounted as root /and it is 100% being used (16GB of 16GB).
Your 3.7 TB HDD is mounted under /media/SATAHD, but seems that you set nextcloud data folder to be on your SD Card, or just used defaults.
Just move your data folder to your HDD and change the config of NC to the new location. Default seems to be/var/snap/nextcloud/common/ what is on your SD card, not HDD.

Thanks so much for this! As a noob to nextcloud/linux though, I wasn’t sure what commands in ubuntu exactly accomplish these, specifically when moving my data folder and changing my config?

Not sure if this was what you were talking about but I found this: HowTo: Change / Move data directory after installation

Sorry for a long response time, I think in your case it should be exact this one:

Basically you need to move you data to /media/SATAHD. Probably your data folder is under /var/snap/nextcloud/common/nextcloud/data you have to move it to something like /media/SATAHD/data or /media/SATAHD/nextcloud/data. This is valid when you install NC via snap.

I have the same issue my NCDATA is 1.5 and i have harddisk with 3TB

I’m having a similar issue: nextcloud uses 200 GB out of 1 TB. But the output looks a bit different.

Here is my output:

It looks like its mounted on the right place right? But where are the other 730 GB?

Thanks!

As per above:

How? I have no mount point.

Do not really catch what you mean.

Based on your screenshot, looks like you need to extend your LVM logical volume mounted under root. Be careful with partitions under root. You need to execute something like this to extend it to e.g. 500Gb, please read more about.

lvextend -L500G /dev/vg-ubuntu/volume

Tanks I’ll try it!
