I recently got a 32GB microSD card for Christmas, and I have formatted it with NOOBS and Raspbian, but when I look at the contents in the LXDE file manager, I notice it says 24GB free of 27.8GB
First off, I know that it doesn't take 8GB of data to store Raspbian - I've done it on ~3GB before on a 4GB sd card. If NOOBS is allocating the other 5GB to it, how can I reduce this? I have not installed any other programs or connected to any WiFi, but I have added a third user (besides root and pi)
I am familiar with the disclaimer that 'actual memory size may be smaller' on a memory card, but it appears that a good ~5GB is unaccounted for. Why is this?
