Saving music library in SD
#1
Hi all,
 I have started using this wonderful software.
I haven't found any thread about it and I would appreciate getting help.
The SD card I have used for installation is a 64GB which leaves around 60GB free.
The command df -h only shows the partitions /boot and /root leaving the rest as unused space.
Is it possible expanding the system for using the 64GB? Should I create and format a new partition on the unused space?
I have tried the last mentioned option with Gparted, in a Ubuntu computer but Moode still does not recognize it.
Any ideas?
Thanks

On the System config page you will find the "File system" setting under System modifications. Set it to EXPAND and reboot. Now the /root system will include the formerly free 60GB.

Note: I do not recommend you store your music on the uSD card. If you reimage moOde onto the card (as, for example, because you install a new version*) you'll lose the collection. I do recommend using a USB drive of some sort or a NAS.

*sometimes a new version can be installed in-place as an update to the previous one, but not always.

Thanks for your advice!
In that case I think that using a 64GB SD is a waste of space since as far as I have seen Moode won't grow so big.
I think a 8GB SD is more than enough.
Thanks again!

I think 8GB is the "sweet spot" but around here the 8GB cards have disappeared from store shelves, forced out by the demand for ever larger-capacity (hence more expensive!) cards.  The only caveat is that the card be good quality. Bargain-basement priced cards cause more trouble than they are worth.
