I downloaded GParted so I could create a seperate partition. /dev/sda1 fat16, boot/efi. /dev/sda2 ext4 /boot. /dev/sda3 fedora_new-host-3. I have a 500 gb internal hard drive. An Asus X55c Notebook that came with windows 8. Well sda3 says I have 468gb and 468gb is used There is no unallocated space and I cannot shrink the volume to create any. How is this possible? I only have about 65 gigabytes of stuff on my computer however I cannot access it to create a new partition or anything.

please post screenshot of gparted and verfy that you have dynamic partitions on windows8 if you have you will not be able to shrink space

Sorry, have been to busy to get on for the last week. I found my issue. Reinstalled fedora using a standard partition. I had chosen LVM in the initial install. This fixed my problem.
