I am running Ubuntu 20.10 LTS on a dual boot with Windows 10.
The other day I had the wonderful idea to run a data recovery utility... Long story short is I filled up my hard drive and now Ubuntu won't start.
When booting into Ubuntu, I get some error akin to "Community MySQL won't start". Researching that alluded to issues about not enough disk space, and since I recently filled up my hard drive, I'm guessing MySql doesn't start due to a full disk.
Booting into windows, I cannot give my Linux partition more space.
I can boot into GRUB, although I can't find much use for it. Doing the "Clean" option doesn't seem to do anything. I have two kernels available - 5-8.53 and 5-8.55.
My last idea before posting this question is to create a boot disk. I created a boot disk for 20.10, but that doesn't seem to work... Do I need to use a different distro than what I have currently?
I believe I do not have a boot partition. This is my first linux box, and i didn't know what a boot partition was until 10 minutes ago.
I just need to delete one folder from my Linux partition. What is the easiest way to do that without booting into the OS? Please and thank you.
