SD Disk Space on Raspbian Jessie

The older Raspbian distributions required that you expand the root file system to the maximum on the SD card.

That looks like it’s taken care of automatically with Jessie. If I run:

$ df -k
Filesystem      1K-blocks    Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root        15119432 3969928  10475472  28% /
devtmpfs           437052       0    437052   0% /dev
tmpfs              441384   32344    409040   8% /dev/shm
tmpfs              441384    6064    435320   2% /run
tmpfs                5120       4      5116   1% /run/lock
tmpfs              441384       0    441384   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/mmcblk0p1      63503   20756     42747  33% /boot
tmpfs               88280       0     88280   0% /run/user/1000

It shows that /dev/root has all the 16GB SD allocated to it.

I ran

$ sudo raspi-config

And selected Advanced Options > Expand Root Filesystem, then rebooted. Then I ran again df -k, and the result was about the same.
