    Are you seeing this in a partition you created for Android, or in a virtual computer?

    If you created a 500GB virtual drive on a virtual computer, it's 500GB large, whether you install anything to it or not.

    If you're seeing this from inside a partition on which Android is mounted (using a terminal app to get to Linux). something is wrong, but if you created a 500GB partition, that's how large it is - again, whether you install Android to it or not. (The same thing if you just installed it to the hard drive as the only operating system - Linux, the OS in which Android is running, will use the entire drive.)

    Same questions:

    Did you install it on a partition or in a virtual machine.

    There's no way to answer it until we have that information.

    If you're installing it as the only OS on a 129GB SSD, it's going to take the entire 120GB. But if you install it on a virtual machine (in, say, Windows), you can allocate as much or as little space to it as you want. (Or you could partition the SSD and install it to one partition, and install other operating systems to other partitions.)

    you installed androidx86 either with fat32 or NTFS.
    You need to format to the native file system for Linux, EXT4

    Once you do it, install again, and you will see all the free space available.
