Hi @stryds. Welcome to the forum!

By far, the easiest way may be to reinstall Qubes. Unless you only have a problem in a specific qube (aka. AppVM) - in which case you can look into the backup and restoration tool.

I’m not sure I understand by this.

When you do a fresh install you have the option to create space on the
drive by deleting existing partitions. Don’t try to do this from within
Formatting the drive like this wont affect your BIOS, heads or
