Raspberry Pi, External Hard Drives, Latest Update Failed

Hi all,

I’m using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and love it and OSMC. I have a powered external hard drive attached and have been putting movies and TV shows on that. However on playback the video will freeze up occasional for half a minute or so and my wife gets annoyed. Because of that I have been putting them on the MicroSD card and they play flawlessly.

A few days ago I went to install the latest OSMC update. It then told me I had 0MB left and couldn’t install it. I just thought it would revert to the old version but it didn’t - I just kept getting the sad face. I tried looking at the MicroSD card on my PC but couldn’t see the videos I had uploaded to it so couldn’t free up any room.

Anyway, I did a clean install. Not a big deal because I must have done a hundred of them before.

I did test a USB non-powered external hard drive and it seems to work fine.

My question is if there is a way in OSMC (I use the Confluence skin) to see how much space on the MicroSD card has been used?


Check under Settings -> System Info

Thanks, Sam!
