Debian Configuration :: Missing Disk Space / Get It Back?

Feb 19, 2010

I seem to have a major discrepancy between what df reports and what du reports. df tells me that I am using 20G, but I am only able to find 9.5G using du. What follows are the ls -l of root, a df of my system, and the du for every directory in root that is not a symbolic link, mnt, or proc. I would appreciate any suggestions on where to look for the remaining 10.5G that seems to have disappeared.
I am running under VM Player code...

Debian :: : Get Back Disk Space Warning?

Jul 25, 2011

I have made two partitions / and /home . / is where all the packages and other stuff lives and /home is where user i.e. my data lives. I am sure everybody knows the 'disk space is less' warning dialog box when either we install too many packages or when we download many things. Now the last time it happened by mistake I clicked on do not show more warnings. Now I want to have that warning dialog box back. looked at System > Preferences submenu as well as System > Administration but have not been able to find any info. on the same.

45GB ext3 /dev/sda3 - / Debian squeeze

Ubuntu :: Missing Disk Space With Vuze?

Jun 13, 2010

I use vuze. I added some torrents to it, but some time after i removed them using vuze's interface. I did these steps:

1. Right button click
2. Remove and
3. Remove both

After doing this, there was no change in my free disk space and some bizare things started to happen. Here is a screenshot about free disk space confusion that is happening. The partition is ext3. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? How can i fix this? Does anyone experienced the same problem?

Here is a screenshot showing differences in free space displayed by nautilus and df.

Ubuntu :: Reclaim My Missing Disk Space?

Aug 18, 2010

I started getting this warning that my Home partition disk space was running low, so I ran a disk space analyzer which only told me that I was using about 650 MB. Since I had 5 GB allocated to the home partition, I knew that something was not right. After manually going through all of the primary subdirectories on home, I found the culprit, namely an unexecuted game installation directory taking up about 4.5 GB. So I deleted the files, but then I didn't get my disk space back. I rebooted, no change. I ran this program called sfill, part of Secure Delete, which is supposed to wipe the directory 38 times and totally clean everything off. Still, no change. Any ideas how to reclaim my disk space?

General :: Where Is The Missing Disk Space On Software Raid

Nov 3, 2010

Purchased (4) 2TiB Drives (actual disk space) and created a RAID5 array expecting to have 6TB of useable disk space, however actual useable space is 5.46TiB.

So, the question is where did the disk space go?

First off, I can say for certainty the disks actual useable is verified at 2TB each have mounted and formated on a non-linux system (OSX).

Disks - 2TB Per disk, Tested HFS, Actual 2TB Useable
root@server:/server# fdisk -l 2>/dev/null | egrep "sd[hijk]" | grep Disk
Disk /dev/sdh: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes
Disk /dev/sdj: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove The Installation And Get The Disk Space Back?

Sep 1, 2011

I have never had to do this before But I'm giving my laptop to my mother when my new one arrives and I need to remove the ubuntu installation and get the disk space back.

A few months ago the install stopped working. I can't remember what the error said... and tbh I can't be bothered to reboot twice to read it, but it has to be removed now anyways.

Had a look in windows to see if I can do anything in the disk manager, but it appears I can't. Oh wise ones, please, which path should one take?

Debian :: Dev SDA1 Causes Low Disk Space

Jun 28, 2010

My problem: 1GB-capacity dev SDA1 got filled up to 100% and made system unusable in less than one month. No downloads or updates were made during this period of time. I don't know which files/programs would be safe to delete since it all seem to be system files.

Here is a screen-shot that might shed some light on what is happening

Aug 8, 2010

When i backup my /etc-directory with rsync it is 1.7MB big.I checked etc. It is about 65MB.Oh...I figured out that the most big dir under /etc is "alternatives", say 55MBI unpacked the etc_backup.tar.gz. It is about 65MB.I pack it back together: 1.7MB.btw: if i do ls -hl i always get 4.0K . To check the size of directories i need to use a filemanager. That sucks. A tip?

Debian :: Determine Amount Of Unused Hard Disk Space?

Jan 1, 2011

I am using LVM2 and have shrinked my /home partition and extended my / partition but I'm not sure if I used all the free space when growing my / partition. How can I find out? I prefer using the terminal if there is a graphical way to do this but I would like to know both ways if there are two ways.

Debian Configuration :: No Space Left On Device

Mar 15, 2016

Debian Version: 8.3 (Jessie) KDE (although this is NOT a desktop issue)
Basic Hardware:
Gigabyte Motherboard GA-970A-D3P
AMD 8350 CPU (8 cores)
32 GB DDR3 RAM
120GB SSD SATA-6GB/s
750 WD Black SATA-6GB/s

I am getting "Error: No space left on device" regularly during updates or installs, but why. Here is data on the disks, filesystems, etc...

Code: Select all df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1        81G   27G   50G  35% /
devtmpfs         16G     0   16G   0% /dev
tmpfs            16G   76K   16G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs            16G   18M   16G   1% /run

[code]...

Seems very doubtful that inodes are the killer.I have googled and followed all the threads, and search these forums and found nothing that fits - every answer there was focused on avaiolable space and inodes..And to make the cheese even more binding, the issue has cropped up on another 8.3 system with far more disk space (larger hard drives) and lots more unused inodes

Code: Select alldf -h
Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/dm-0                         907G  6.6G  855G   1% /
udev                               10M     0   10M   0% /dev
tmpfs                             995M  9.2M  986M   1% /run
tmpfs                             2.5G   76K  2.5G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs                             5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock

Debian :: Squeeze Will Not Show Free And Used Disk Space On EXT4 Drive

Feb 23, 2011

This weekend, I installed Debian Squeeze on my server. I've formatted all the hard disks to EXT4, and I'm using kernel version 2.6.32-686-bigmem.When I tried to install the program saidar, it surprised me why it does not show my hard drives under 'mountpoint' [URL] <-- Saidar screenshot) as I could when I ran with Debian Lenny with the same kernel, but where the hard drives were formatted in EXT3. My laptop which has Ubuntu 10.04 as OS and the hard drive is formatted in EXT4 can easily show the hard drive in saidar.
I also tried to install PHP SysInfo on the Debian computer, but it does not bother to show anything on the hard disks

I tried to check fstab file and I can see that Debian uses UUID to identify the hard drives, but I've tried to change it to something with /dev/sdx, but it did not help either.[URL] (fstab file)

I know that Debian squeeze is very new, but it would be nice if someone could give me a hint what might be wrong, because I am a little tired of all time to use 'du-hs' command To find out how much space is spent on the various drives, since the command is a little slow, since hard disks are well filled.

I've looked in fstab and indeed the writer is there and /dev/ only has my other 2 drives cdrom1 and cdrom. i can trace them back to sr0 and sr1 but, there is no sr2, or anything else to find out what my drive is called. what can i do to find out?

Edit: booting under the old kernel image see's them recognized as hda, hdc, hdd. image 2.6.26, the backport is 2.6.32

Slackware :: Disk Space Lost- Root Partition Has Very Little Space Left

Jan 31, 2010

Today I was installing a lot of software since I'm just setting up my Slackware system again after a fresh install, and I realized that my root partition has very little space left.

Here is the output of df -h:


Code:

As you can see, I have a 20G (19G here for some reason) root partition, 8G /var, and 86G of /home. I thought this would be plenty since many recent recommendations for / are 10-15G. Now, though, 17G are used up for some reason! How is this possible? I thought a full slackware install only had about 4G of software! I don't have any music or movies or any crazy huge files that I know of, and those would be in my /home directory anyway. Is there any way I can see which files are taking up all this space?

If it's necessary to allocate more space to my / partition, is it still possible to boot up a GParted live Cd, shrink /home a bit, move some partitions to the right, and expand my root partition? I would REALLY prefer I don't have to reinstall since I just spent a ton of time setting up my system again, but if worst comes to worst ... :'-(

In case you're curious, here's my /etc/fstab:

Debian Hardware :: Missing Disk \ Cannot Access It During The Live Usb?

Aug 11, 2011

I do not have the machine personally but a friend of mine says her netbook with Linux detects the disk in the bios, but can not access it during the live usb. (but it worked previously). I have confirmed this with fdisk as fdisk detects the other devices as /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc, so it knows there is supposed to be a /dev/sda, but it is not there.

Debian Configuration :: Static IP Switching Back To DHCP

Jul 15, 2010

I'm new to the forum and actually to Debian as well. Have been running Ubuntu for the past few years. Just setup a small Dell laptop to use as a Squeezebox and Print server. It's been up 6 days without a hitch as far as serving music to the squeezebox and printing. The problem is that it loses it's static IP, so as long as I look it up and change the radio Squeezebox and printer definitions around on the clients everything keeps working.

Does anyone have any ideas?If the connection drops for some reason and the system has to re-initialize the connection, shouldn't it use the /etc/network/interfaces file and get back to the static IP that it is configured for?If anyone has any ideas of why this could be happening or have a solution, I would really appreciate the help.

Debian Configuration :: Squid3 Access.log Size Too Big - Run Out Free Space

Mar 17, 2011

i have successfully set up squid3 with squeeze using guide on this forum viewtopic.php?f=16&t=59301 . The only problem that i have is the size of /var/log/access.log is too big and keep increasing so i run out of free space. The size of it always the same size as my free space hard disk (so it make me run out of free space in just one day, it can have size to 30 Gb ) right now , the only workaround i make is using crontab to rm access.log every hour . I'm sure this is not the right solution . Does anybody know the correct workaround about this ? I have searching in google but seems havent yet have luck with this .

Debian Configuration :: Partitioning The Four Individual Drives To Get Maximum Performance / Space From Them?

Jan 25, 2011

I've got 4 identical 1 TB drives and would like to use them in a software RAID configuration on my home server. I'm running Debian Linux using 'mdadm' utility to manage the software RAID. I don't know how much I've read is fact or dated or even false so I decided I would ask here to get help from people who know more about this than I do. This is essentially just a file server machine to store all my data so being that I've got four identical SATA hard drives, I was thinking about doing RAID level 5. I guess I'll start here and ask if that is the recommended level of RAID. I think RAID level 5 will be fine for my general server usage. My second issue is partitioning the four individual drives to get maximum performance / space from them. Basically just asking here how would you or you recommend I partition the drives? I was thinking about doing three seperate partitions per drive:

/dev/sda1 = 4 GB (swap)/dev/sda2 = 1 GB (/boot)/dev/sda3 = 995 GB (/Now from that partition schema above, obviously all the types will be 'fd' for RAID and the partition for /boot is going to be bootable. My confusion is that I read Grub doesn't support booting from RAID 5 since Grub can't handle disk assembly. If /dev/sdx2 (sda2, sdb2, sdc2, sdd2) are partitioned for /boot (bootable), how would you guys configure this RAID to match up equally? I don't think I do a RAID level 1 on 4 identical partitions, right?

Debian Configuration :: Dpkg Report No Space Left On /usr With >1GiB Free

Jul 1, 2011

Command "sudo aptitude install oxygen-icon-theme" return following error:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/oxygen-icon-theme_4%3a4.6.2-2_all.deb (--unpack):
unable to install new version of `/usr/share/icons/oxygen/22x22/apps/preferences-desktop-default-applications.png': No space left on device

[Code]....

As far as I can see oxygen-icon-theme unpacks only in /usr/share, beyond it I can think of only /tmp, /var or /var/tmp that it may use, all of which have plenty more than those ~40 MiB that it supposed to occupy unpacked. All btrfs filesystems were formatted with "-d single -m single". System is Debian Sid 64-bit with linux-image-3.0.0-rc5-amd64.

why dpkg may have trouble unpacking this package?

Debian Configuration :: Server Missing About 300mb Of Ram

Mar 15, 2010

I downloaded the most recent version of debian and isntalled it. Everything went really well there. Until i issued free -m on the box. It would appear that the server is missing about 300mb of ram which is okay for i figured perhaps the video card / sound was taking that amount of ram for it'self. it was not until i installed Xen and I found a bigger problem with memory and my system. for what ever reason when I attempt to create a domU with 512mb of ram, i need to add 19MB more ram so that when i issue free -m from within the domU it will show a total of 512. worse yet is that when i raise the total up to 1024 for 1gb or domU ram, i need to addd 28mb or ram. and add 28mb of ram PER GB i wish to add to the domU.
