General Help & Advice / Re: Cloning my HDD
« on: June 06, 2015, 11:34:39 pm »
Hi, Mark

Don't get too excited it's a much reduced version of Acronis 2013 but it does clone a disk which is all I needed.

Also you have to have a WD HDD installed in order to download the file - which by chance I did.

I believe Seagate also offer a version of Acronis in the same way.

Regards,

Doug.

Peppermint 5 was superb but if Peppermint 6 is "better" well wow!!

Well done to Mark not just for P6 but for all the help he puts out too.

Looking forward to trying it soon.

Just thought I'd update this thread to a conclusion have now "cloned" my 160gig to a new 500gig disk using Acronis True image. (free copy from WD website)

Went without a hitch and now planning to update my wife's laptop in similar fashion.

Thanks to everyone for the advice given on this topic.

Erm...

Quote from: Mark
I gather the Windows version used the 8GB SSD to house a recovery image .. so you could set the 32GB SSD back to the factory defaults.

was an explanation of why they had 2 SSD's, not instructions to reset to factory defaults ;)

If I were you I'd start a new topic, but draw attention to this one ;)

was in answer to wether you should reoppen this topic when Peppermint 6 was released :)

Hi, Mark

Slightly puzzled by this post probably me being dim.

I asked why it had two SSD's and you explained the reason. Fully understood no intention of re-setting and no point in trying to anyway. ;D

You suggested I wait for P6 and you would talk me through the set up using all the space available. Also fully understood just acknowledging your kind offer and saying I'll wait and start a new topic as and when P6 is released.  ;D

Maybe my rapidly approaching senility is approaching faster than I thought!!!

Hi, Mark

Thanks again.

I'll leave well alone until P6 is released if I start to tinker something will surely go wrong!!

Cheers, Doug.

Yup, looks like you were only using the 8GB SSD, the 32GB wasn't being mounted at all.

When Peppermint 6 comes out, we'll talk you through an installation that utilises both SSD's giving you loads more space.

Thanks, Mark

Appreciate your help very much and looking forward to P6 being released.

Am surprised to discover there are two SSD's in this netbook do you know why Asus fit two?

Anyway thanks again.

Regards, Doug.

PS Should I re-open this thread when P6 is released?

Hi, guys

Hope the output above helps.

The netbook is an Asus EEEpc and was/is the Linux version which last year I got rid of and installed P4 and then P5.

As far as I recall it has a 40 gig SSD but how it is configured I have no idea.  I assumed when I installed P4/5 that it
would format the SSD and there would be two partitions but it seems not maybe?

Anyway thanks for your interest hope the output helps.

Regards, Doug

Peppermint / Re: Software updater - no space?
« on: May 10, 2015, 02:08:38 pm »
Sezo/Mark

Does the output above make things clear? Not really sure what it means myself.

Does it basically mean I would be better advised to buy a new and bigger SSD (say 60gig) or would that make no difference and if there is only one SSD why cannot I re-format it and then re-size the partitions when installing P6 - is the SSD physically split in some way?

Mark. Thanks for the explanation of how space is used up I had sort of assumed that was what happened but you have expanded my limited understanding
significantly.

Cheers, Doug.

Mark ,

Your last post went in just as i posted this!!!

I installed P5 from a USB stick but I have nothing attached or plugged in at all - nothing.

I'm showing my ignorance I know but looking at the output there seemed to be two or three different "things" partitions or whatever they are which
I found very puzzling.

Doug.

Hi, Mark

Thanks for your help and expertise I would be lost without it,  for sure!!

I assume then that each time an update is done i'm using up free space but not removing old files at the same time thus i'll be back in tthe same boat over time?

If I install P6 as you suggest during that process  could I size the partitions to give me more space for P6?  I think the SSD is 30 or 40 gig.

How do I check the size of the partitions now and is the above feasible or am I completely off the plot with my thinking?

Cheers, Doug.
