SD Cards & formatting

The Good news is that The Banana Pi will defintely read and write the new SD/HC/XC cards. i have a 64GB one in mine, and it seems to work fine, but...

I am not sure if the entire card is partitioned for use. I used the Disks tool under preferences and saw that I seem to have 3 partitions:

Filesystem partition 1, 63MB FAT, /dev/mmcblk0p1
Filesystem Partition 2, 3.6GB Ext4, /dev/mmcblk0p2
Free space, 59GB, /dev/mmcblk0p0 (unallocated space)

The question is, will the "free space" be used, or do I have to partition it?
I assume that the other 2 partitions were created by the imaging process.
What do I need to do to access the SD card as one giant drive?
Is it possible (and easy) to span the free space onto one of the existing partitions?

Thanks!

Hi,

you can use the unallocated free space by enlarging /dev/mmcblk0p2. Under Linux this can be done (for instance) with gparted.
