I am going to install Raspbian with NOOBS. I have read several places that it is good to expand the root file system. Do I need to do this if I install Raspbian with NOOBS?

If you install raspbian with NOOBS you can try to expand it, but the command in raspi-config will say, that it is already expandend because you probably used Noobs.

So the answer is: No, you don't have to do it.


You will still need to expand the file system. It can be done under the config menu accessed by

sudo raspi-config

and selecting the corresponding option. It's pretty painless.
