To begin, I've downloaded "Raspbian Wheezy" on an SD card using Win32 Disk Imager on Windows 7. Once I "added" the Raspbian .img file onto my SD card, I noticed my SD card had dropped from the original capacity of 8GB to a meer 55MB. I thought that this was normal until I couldn't add any more directories into my Pi's SD card.
I know how to put my SD card back into it's original capacity (using this SD Formatter), but is there a way to download Raspbian onto my SD card without having any significant capacity loss? Thanks!
sudo raspi-configand choose the
expand_rootfsoption to expand your 2.93GB root partition to include all that currently unallocated space. After a reboot, you'll be able to use the rest of your SD card.
