Introduction:
In this tutorial we will explain how to expand the space in external micro SD card used by the file system in your BeagleBone Black.
 Why we are expanding the File System Partitions?
Generally storage devices needs some strucutre that allows the operating system to locate and create new files.This is done by using Partitions and File systems.
 
 A partition is a section of a storage device, which is formatted with a File System, onto which the operating system creates a directory structure.By expanding the File Systems in the micro SD card we can utilize the rest of the place for storage purpose.
Steps for Expanding the File Systems in External SD card Step 1:
Insert the SD card in to your Beaglebone Black and boot it.After login,open your terminal.First become a super user from the command prompt of your beagleboneblack OS.
$ sudo su
If you don‟t want to go super user mode just add „
sudo
 infront of all the commands which  we are going to use.
Step 2:
Ensure the available volumes on the SD card.Depending on your linux version it will show like this.I am running Debian with GUI(Debian installation steps click here)
