Filed under

HowTos

Here is the scenario. You have followed one of my guides for creating a Linux USB drive but not you want to use it again for a different purpose.

For whatever reason it only shows a small amount of disk space showing and it doesn't show up in Windows Explorer.

What can you do to fix it?

This guide takes you through the steps to getting the full disk space back. Let me be clear though that at no point did Linux break the USB drive. It just repartitioned it so that it can boot on a computer with the UEFI boot loader.

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
