Wubi Device /dev/loop0 Full – How to Get More Space


$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/loop0       17G   15G  838M  95% /
udev            1.9G  4.0K  1.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs           762M  928K  761M   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none            1.9G  940K  1.9G   1% /run/shm
/dev/sda5       196G   18G  178G   9% /host
/dev/mmcblk0p1  7.4G  365M  7.1G   5% /media/3064-6365
/dev/sdb1       961M  157M  805M  17% /media/44C7-E9E7
/dev/sdc1       932G  8.4G  924G   1% /media/My Book
/dev/sda2       100M   25M   76M  25% /media/SYSTEM RESERVED
/dev/sda3       240G   42G  199G  18% /media/Gateway

Above is terminal output. I realize that I can not down load files because of the low space on /dev/loop0. But, I do not know how to fix. Would like to use part of /dev/sda5, and /dev/sda3 is Windows 7; /dev/sdc1 is an ext. HD.

I think you are running Ubuntu with wubi. Is that true?

If so, please refer to How can I check how much space there is left on WUBI versus how much space it takes on my HDD? for information about what you can do when you are short on space.

There's a link on that question to the wubi guide here.

For resizing the space available you should refer to this.
