Thumbnails are the death of me again, filling up my 14GB /dev/vero-nand/root. I went through the procedure to delete and rebuild the thumbnail cache and database, but it filled up again immediately. Seems I have too many movies, TV shows, and albums!
Note all my media is on my Plex server which has about 140TB of storage. Nothing is stored locally on my Vero4K+ and I have no external media beyond a 32GB USB flash drive I use to backups my OSMC config.
My Vero4K+ boots off a 128GB SDCARD, so the simple idea is to expand this paltry partition to something larger. Only problem is…how? cat /etc/fstab says it’s an ext4 partition, so I tried various Windows utilities which claim to be able to resize ext4 partitions. However, these utilities only show one partition, a FAT partition of around 300MB. The rest of the card is listed as “unallocated” which, I suspect, is not correct. Then I tried a live boot of GParted and it showed the same thing.
What am I missing here? How can I get more space for thumbnails?
