====Resize ""SaveFile""====
~It may be time to resize the ""SaveFile"" if the indicator (bottom right-hand size of [[Panels panel]]) has gone from green to amber, or even red.
~Check that any temporary files are cleaned out. #/root/# has various caches, for example [[firefox]], [[openoffice]], gnome-player, Adobe have temporary files. (large directories like ##.mozilla## folder, or files like ##libflashplayer## can be [[link symlinked]] out). If indicator went amber after installing [[PETs Pet]] packages then it is best to expand the ""SaveFile"".
~Look at the ##/initrd/pup_rw## folder to see what is in the save-file.

==Expanding ""SaveFile""==
~There is a tool for expand the ""SaveFile"" under - //PuppyMenu > Utility > Resize personal Storage file//
~Or go to - //PupControl > Drive > Resize Puppy File//

~Choose how much to expand the file, however it will only be activated on next startup. Ensure you restart with the file that needs to be expanded. This tool only allows you to expand the file, not decrease it.
