I have a 16 GB SD card, but apparently I am already out of space! I ran ncdu / and apparently I am only using 2.5 GB. How is this possible? There is no way that the OS (Raspbian) is taking up the remaining 13.5 gigs.

    You can't have expanded the filesysystem to use the full card. What does df -h report? – joan Sep 20 '14 at 16:29

It sounds like you have not expanded the install to fill the entire SD card capacity, running raspi-config and choosing the "Expand Filesystem" option should do the trick.

  • Yes this works. Had a 16gb newly created raspbian card and only had 8% disk space left before expanding the filesystem. – Guus Nov 16 '15 at 14:49
