I am a new Linux user (deep breaths everyone) and I went through the guided install of Elementary OS Loki 0.4 alongside Win 10 somewhat successfully. The issue is that upon creating the new partitions for the file system I think that there have been some extra partitions thrown in.
I started with 125GB of free space on my HDD before the partitioning, although I was only able to adjust the amount of data for the separate OS and root partitions from only 100GB of free space. Using the file browser shows that there are in fact three devices named file system, 20GB Volume and 30GB Volume.
These extra partitions have only a few folders within that contain files (namely bin, root, dev and etc) of ~700MB each, so I'm not sure if these folders have important files on them or not.
Should I run Linux from a USB drive and remove these partitions if they are not important? I wouldn't mind some extra space for the root folder since I'm only left with 70GB of space.
Does anyone know if this is a known issue? Cheers.
EDIT - GParted shows that I have 3 of the ext4 partitions and one swap partition. All together these add up 27.97GB(/media/jackson/6b929d58-cea2-4e00-829d-9221249f11dc) + 18.70GB(/media/jackson/52c47ec7-fdab-410e-b2f6-520bac22485f) + 74.44GB(/) + 3.89GB(Swap) = 125GB.
