I have installed Fedora with lvm Luks just now. i gave the /home partition 340 GB of space, when i start into the new Fedora with Luks password and trying to upload my saved dokument on /home partition. Its says clear that i dont have more 300 something MB in disk-space, why is that when i made a home partition with 340 GB. later on i discovered that every folder dont have more then 300 something MB. Beloved and educated Fedora User's, what am i doing wrong? Just migrated from GNU Debian to Fedora, tho about give it a try! Btw, is Linux from Scratch building impossible with Fedora? Sincerly: ex Debian User

There is not enough space on the destination. Try to remove files to make space. There is 27.7 GB available, but 142.7 GB is required.

That message is self explanatory. You have 27 or so Gb free in /home and you are trying to save a 142 Gb file. Add space to /home or delete 120+ Gb of files you do not need. Use du and df -h to identify space and size of files.

but i made a patition on 347 gig only for /home, i am giving the correct pass for encryption hard drive. So something is not right?

If you need help, post the partition information requested in my first comment - output of du - you can pastebin the information.
