I took my whole SSD when installing Linus MINT, is it possible to create new partitions on the SSD afterwards without making MINT unusable, the SSD has 1TB

you need a space between the "df" and the "-h"

You need the dash "-" before the h.

df is a standard Linux utility. All Linux distro's I am aware have it. It is usually a part of core-utils.

df -h

Looks like / is 916G, that is taking up most of your room. But everything else is mounted under /
so you have 852GB available in your linux system.

YES sure but I want to separate the Linus system, from the new partition, now ,so 1 partition Linus MINT 20,3 a partition data.
But the Linux system does not need 852 GB
so I would like to reduce the Linux system to 70GB.

Before you partition your SSD look at this...https://www.thetechwire.com/should-i-partition-my-ssd/
I stopped partitioning Drives years ago, instead of partitions I create folders.

As the article says...Partitioning a hard disk drive or HDD has been common practice for years to increase performance and efficiency....years ago 32bit and a limit of 4GB of Ram might need it but modern computers are very different today so performance and efficiency isn't an issue.

Thanks for your answer, I have looked at the page, I can also understand it, since Linus does use the folder downloade in Home, and if you create other folders in the Linus partition, the creation of a backup of Linus will take longer, since there is more data on the Linus partition.

This is my 500GB SSD which has Linux Mint installed...note there's only one partition created by the installer...


I don't create partitions as the reason for doing so is lost in history. My Virtualbox folder is 85GB and others are bigger. As for back ups...I can create an image with Foxclone..https://foxclone.com/. in about 20 to 25 minutes.

I still create partitions. At the very least usually home and var. If it's just my personal computer, home doesn't matter so much.
When a lot of users are on the system, I have had /home fill up. If you keep it as a separate file syem, its not a big deal, but if you just mount it under / your drive can fill up. When that happens, you can't ssh to the system, it locks up and it's sometimes difficult to get things back in order.

/var is where most of your log files go. Usually they pruned every week or month or so often. But every now and then, things get so messed up that log files start coming out your ears and /var fills up also. Again, if it's just mounted under / and it fills up, bad things can happen.
