What happens when your SSD is full?


I am new here and new to BTC so I apologize off the bat for dumb questions.

I am adding funds to my Umbrel and beginning to learn how to create lightning channels. I then wondered what happens to my Wallet, Lightning Nodes, etc…if my hard drive that stores a copy of the block chain fills up? Is there a particular process that needs to be followed to fix that or is it as simple as buying a larger hard drive and just swapping it out? I do not have this problem now but as the block chain grows I was wondering what the solution for that is without losing any of my funds or causing issues with my node.

-Thank you

Not sure about a Ras Pi, but with a normal linux system:

Make a Clonezilla booter: https://clonezilla.org/liveusb.php

  1. Using clonezilla, backup your disk to an external USB drive
  2. . Install a larger hard drive in your node
  3. Using clonezilla, restore data to new hard drive
  4. Using GParted or similar utility, resize partition to use up larger space Example: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man8/resize2fs.8.html

These instructions may not be exact. Not for the faint of heart.
