50GB node, but df only sees 25GB...

Howdy folks,

My node "CentOS 7, Linode 2GB: 1 CPU, 50GB Storage, 2GB RAM" says it has 50GB of storage, but when I do df -h I see

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda 25G 22G 1.9G 93% /

Where's the other 25GB?

It looks like you have unallocated disk space on your plan, in which case the quick fix is to do the following in Cloud Manager:

  1. Power off your Linode
  2. Navigate to Advanced > Disks > Resize
  3. Set the disk size to the maximum amount and click Resize
  4. Once the resize is completed, Power on your Linode

Hope this helps!
