Raspberry Pi with Kali 2.0 and Expand SD Drive Space

Have extra space on your micro SD card but are not seeing it. No big deal, simply run the commands below to expand your drive space.

root@kali:~# df -h

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs          2.9G  1.5G  1.2G  56% /
/dev/root       2.9G  1.5G  1.2G  56% /
devtmpfs        460M     0  460M   0% /dev
tmpfs            93M  468K   93M   1% /run
tmpfs           5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
tmpfs           186M     0  186M   0% /run/shm

See above how only 1.2G of space is being used.

root@kali:~# wget
root@kali:~# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 28.8 GiB, 30908350464 bytes, 60367872 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x000cdbaa

Device         Boot  Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/mmcblk0p1           1   125000   125000   61M  c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/mmcblk0p2      125001 60366847 60241847 28.7G 83 Linux

Most likely via fdisk -l the starting sector of partition 2 will be “125001”. The script provided above has already made the adjustment.

root@kali:~# chmod +x
root@kali:~# sh
root@kali:~# df -h

/dev/root        29G  4.4G   23G  17% /

tmpfs            75M     0   75M   0% /run/user/1000

root@kali:~# reboot
