Hi Folks, I am using 16.04 LTS Ubuntu Gnome. Somehow using PhotoRec my system got a little screwed up. It eventually went into the "login cycle" where it just keeps asking you to enter your login from the shell.
In any case. I was able to recover to a reasonable sense of normal from the Advanced Ubuntu Boot option. But here is what happened: It suggested I free up space, so I used the "Free Space" option. Back to normal boot I went. But it seems like all the deleted items (old kernerls etc.) were put into a newly created partition. Is this normal? I tried moving items to the trash, but they just reappear. The file system in gParted says "unknown" for this partition.
1) Can I safely delete this partition or
2) How can I delete the individual files within it and reclaim my disk space?
OS is on an SSD dual booted with Win 7, so I don't have infinite space to work with!
Thanks in advance!
