When I execute lsblk, I get: NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT xvda 202:0 0 40G 0 disk ??xvda1 202:1 0 40G 0 part / But when I execute df -h –total, I get: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 488M 0 488M 0% /dev tmpfs 100M 3.1M 97M 4% /run /dev/xvda1 20G 20G 0 100% / tmpfs 496M 0 496M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 496M 0 496M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user/1000 total 21G 20G 1.7G 93% - Where is the missing 20G ?
