Hello, I recently used a 32 gb micro SD card to install a os on my raspberry pi. After I did so, my card says it has only 238 MB left. I have deleted all files. Please Help!

Perhaps Linux reformatted the drive and Windows can't understand Linux drives.

Hi Wertyyz,

Are you trying to use the SD card on a PC? Please open Disk Management and check if the card has a correct file format or if there is some unallocated space marked with black line. The best thing to do is to format the SD card and check if the correct capacity will be recognized. As xpcman said, this may be a common formatting problem when using more than one OS.

Hope this helps
