I am running Ubuntu 12.04 I have been running it on this lap top since I bought it last spring a year give or take a few weeks ..

it does have windows installed thoughI have never booted or used windows since I have had the computer ..

this HP haslike a 700 GB HD though I only freed and formated like 50 or 60 GB for Ubuntu when I installed it , it has been having odd behaviour such as seeming to slow to a stop dark screen the side bar scrolls but nothing else goes till things go back to normal not sure if this is a simptom of the laptop disk space getting nearer to full or not Today this after noon out of no where I get a notice that says somrething like disk near full 1.5 gb space left empty trash to continue ..

i am pretty good with Ubuntu but no expert yet so I have no clue how to confirm disk space , conky I load shows only less then 25% of the space is used not sure if that is an honest scale or is off for what ever reason either way I only fomated 50 or 60 gig the reast of the 700GB disk is empty never used and wiindow and recovery partition ..

my question if the disk is full is there any way to just open more space without starting over I really dont care if windows gets messed up I have never used it ..

I am thinking also some how I have got things so I am getting beta updates I receive what I believe is a huge number of updates weekly the last few months and the lap top has been having strange behaviour running hard at times ..

is it possble to fix the disk space with out a reinstall , info that could be handy is I only have 2 patitions for ubuntu main partition and a swap .
