Cent OS 7 File System recognize expanded root

Graywalker asked:

I have expanded the disk for / – and it is MOSTLY recognized.
For example – Applications / Utilities / Disks sees all 84GB, but Applications / Utilities / Disk Useage Analyzer only sees the old 49GB. So, some things know that “/” has been expanded, some don’t. (See screenshots)

How to get EVERYTHING access to the space?

Disks_Screenshot – Sees all 84 GB

DUA_SS_1 – Sees all 84 GB

DUA_SS_2 – Doesn’t see the expanded space?

My answer:


You expanded your filesystem correctly. The “49GB” you are concerned about is the space currently used on the filesystem by files under /, not the total space.
