I am new to raspberry pi as well as Rachel Pi, I have installed the 64gb image on the 128gb card hoping to add more files to it. Currently that is not possible, please i need help to expand the space on the sd card to allow me add more files or modules.
Thank you very much.
You may want to look into Gparted (via bootable USB created with LinuxLive USB creator)
One alternative is here.
Once you connect to the RPI as described above:
Expand the partition
- Check the space: df -h
Pay attention to the available space
- Open config: sudo raspi-config
- Choose: expand root_fs and hit enter and then select finish.
- Restart device and reconnect.
- Connect back to the pi device after it has restarted
- Check the space: df -h (available space should change)
Thank you very much Charlie, I will follow the instructions given and get back to you.
This works !!! Thank you very much.

I’m glad it worked. Best Wishes–
I downloaded the 64gb image to 256gb sd card. Idea was to add more modules but I could never boot the pi with 64gb image on 256gb. Did anyone try this? Any suggestions?
What model of Raspberry Pi are you using?
