    I have a very full boot folder/partion, is it possible to resize it or remove some of the files that are in there? There are three of each of the files in there. \i am assuming they are previous versions and can be removed, but dont want to incase I do something serious, just for a change.

    I have included a screenshot of what I have got, any advice would be appreciated.

    You can remove a few of your old kernel images, that should free up quite a bit of space for you.

    run:
    Code:
    uname -a
    You can see what kernel version you're running right now, with that knowlegde you can safely delete the other kernel versions (or in doubt, just move the files to some other directory)

    after that run
    Code:
    update-grub

    Hey cheers for the replies guys, my boot folder has gone down from 100% to 57%. And more importantly everything still works :)
