Having some issues and any help given really needs to be in laymans terms. New to linux
Got a 2TB hard drive and used balena etcher to flash the iso on it (i know its a large amount but the 2TB was the only hard drive I’ve had, and really wanted to switch to linux because privacy on windows isn’t good.)
Let the whole process complete didnt interrupt it or anything.
Used the 2tb hard drive to install EndOs iso
Try to download something to it and it wont let me
Look up multiple fixes and nothings working
Really lost at what to do, especially because im running out of my internal hard drive space from steam summer sale.
When checking im told the external hard drive has 1.7 TB of storage space that is open and can be used so i don’t really know what the problem is.
Thank you all for your help, and thank you so much for the warm welcome! everything went fine and i can now use my 2TB for steam games and everything is running smoothly. Thank you all for the help, and thank you for treating someone new to linux with such kindness!
Nothing wrong with etcher. Never ever had an issue with it! I only use it on Windoze now because on EndeavourOS i use popsicle. I would never use Rufus and i don’t use dd. Etcher worked for me also on EndeavourOS until i switched to popsicle.
