Raspberry is not detecting extra space from new SD card

Sun Feb 10, 2019 6:53 pm

So I recently got a new sdcard and I upgraded from 8GB to 32GB, but when I do df -h it doesn't show that it has expanded. I have NOOBS on a Raspberry Pi Model B+

If anyone has suggestions on how to fix this, please tell me.

what does sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda show? did the expand function expand the partition to use the whole disk?

How did you copy the card?

If you are running the Desktop version of Raspbian, I suggest you try the included SD Card Copier, as it handles different sized cards for you.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
