16GB Storage Limit ?



  • Does Ubuntu Touch have a storage limit of 16GB ? I ask because the PineTab that came preinstalled with Ubuntu Touch only shows 16GB storage even though it comes with 64GB. When I installed the latest images of Ubuntu Touch on my Pinephone Braveheart on a 128GB Micro SD it also only sees a total of 16GB storage. Has anybody else noticed this issue ? Anybody out there with phones north of 16GB storage have it see the correct amount ?



  • There was a recent update on the Pinephone which is related to storage. Probably this will fix the issue on the Pinetab as well so try to switch to devel and see. I am not sure though how in sync the developments for the Pinephone and PInetab though.
    Also, I think the PInetab only has 32GB 🙂
    EDIT: Sorry, I was thinking of the convergence edition of the PInephone 😅



  • @PublicLewdness My Nexus 5 is the 32GB model and it's seeing 31.7GB so there isn't a 16GB limit.



  • @PublicLewdness
    You have to resize the user partition the same way one can do for raspberry pi.
    When you flash your SD card it's done with a default value then you'll have to adjust to the actual size of the sd card.



  • @AppLee
    I was going to suggest, the UT download ,expands to 14.7g when extracted , + what's on the device already = 16g as per the phones.
    So ...........

    I switched my PineTab to the development channel and it sees the correct size now. Thanks !
