I don’t know if root ‘owned’ the 51GB partition prior to the upgrade to

Right now it is 51GB of space I can’t begin to utilize, and I would like
it as mine for future use.
Is there anyway I can get ownership of that 51GB partition changed to my
Is this partition mounted as something?
If not, fire up YaST Partitioner and then select the drive, eg sda and
you should see the partitions in the right hand side, highlight your
partition and select ‘edit’. Here you can format, suggest xfs and the
set the mount point eg I use /data and then in the fstab options give
it a name eg data (This is what I use) and finish.
So now you should see something like;
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 223.6G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 260M 0 part /boot/efi
├─sda2 8:2 0 40G 0 part /
├─sda3 8:3 0 175.3G 0 part /data
└─sda4 8:4 0 8G 0 part [SWAP]
What I do is then as root user create folders and change ownership to
my user from the command line, eg;
chown <username>:users Downloads
During an upgrade/re-install I then do the same naming setup via the
expert partitioner, BUT don’t format, just set the mount point /data
and name data.
