Use unused partition as storage
« on: October 24, 2016, 02:56:13 AM »
Hi,

I'm new to Askozia and am trying to finalize the setup. Askozia is installed (direct media installation through an iMac) on a 250GB SSD. I noticed only 1 small partition was installed during the installation. How can I use the available size of the HDD as Storage Disk?

This is NOT recommended since you need to save config and storage everytime you update. Please remember this.
You can press ESC to get into the integrator panel. Then use the magic button "use storage from unused space".
Reminder: creating storage of a large drive can take quite some time.

Goseph,

I'm confused. Does this mean I better run Askozia from a USB stick and use the HDD as storage disk?

That's correct.  Safer route as will not mistake upgrade and lose your config.

As if you upgrade,  have to do the partition over again and re-upload config & storage
