do the following:
open up a terminal (i.e. a command-line) and type there:
df -h > df.txt
This will show how much free space you have
and then this command:
cat /etc/fstab > fstab.txt
This will show how your disk(s) are partitioned.
Then cut and paste the contents of df.txt and fstab.txt into your reply.
