I was using Armbian in my OrangePi-PC from 1yr back. At that time I remembered that on first login Armbian resized the partition to full sd-card size.

Recently I erased everything regarding corrupted card & downloaded latest Armbian. But after the first boot I saw that there has a 160MB unallocated space. So armbian not resized the partition fully.
Is there has anything new in the v5.20 Or system needs this 160MB unallocated space for anything??

Should I now resize manually so that the remaining 160MB can be taken into root partition? Will it lead to any issue??

Those are features not bugs - SD cards can be bad at the end of the space and for cloning purposes - not all 8GB cards are 8GB in size ... check our forum for detail explanation.

I'm using a 16GB card, of which 14.9GB is usable. So I can make a parition of 14.9GB max. But Armbian making a partition of 14.8GB, 160MB is unallocated.

Ok if it is a feature then I have no problem with that. Thanks for reply....

And I was trying to find explanations in the forum. But unable to find proper material. Can you provide link of the material you was refering ?
