The WSL disk image has grown to fill the host
C:/ drive due to too many large docker builds.
The virtual partition needs to be shrunk, the process below can be used. Thanks to this comment on Github.
The path to the virtual disk was found via WinDirStat:
In a Windows command line terminal shutdown WSL.
wsl --shutdown wsl --unmount wsl -l --verbose NAME STATE VERSION * Ubuntu Stopped 2
Then run the partition tool.
This opens a new window.
