Space issues with live persistent f20?

I dedicated 50 gb to my live persistent OS but I get a message from it saying I only have 60 mb left. When I go onto disks the FAT partition is only 10% full. So I have only used like 5 gb. The / folder seems to only have 4 gb dedicated to it, but that doesn't even make sense because I gave way more space to the partition. The files app says that there are multiple partitions plugged into my computer but I have only made one. Most of these partitions have the same name -- the name I gave to my live persistent OS. I just want to know what is going on here and how to use the free space in the partition I dedicated to the OS.

Since it is a usb image it normally make it 4G or something did you resize it after it was created?

You need to run fdisk on you device so you can see it has the 50G you assigned to if not you can follow this and this as guide of how to do it.

Persistence is even an option these days? 21 and 22 dont have persistence. 20 is end of life. The live cd has almost ZERO space free for some reason. I dont even see a persistence option.Debian live cds must map some ram into the / partition somehow but the fedora live discs dont do this. BUG has already been filed.Saving to external media sometimes also fails as there is no place for temporary files to be placed.
