Ubuntu :: Disk Space Used Doesn't Match What Is Shown In Disk Usage Analyzer?

General :: Hidden Files In Disk Usage Analyzer?

Aug 18, 2010

How do I get Ubuntu's "Disk Usage Analyzer" to show me the hidden files?

It tells me my home dir uses 3GB, but only accounts for 525MB (the results of du -shc *). Can I get it to show me the other files that are using the space?

Debian Multimedia :: VirtualBox 4.0.2 Unsynced Disk Usage Analyzer And Df -h?

Jan 30, 2011

I have a problem with my partitions being shrunk after VirtualBox PUEL 4.0.2 install. I tried VB OSE, loaded XP Pro and all necessary programs and realized it does not support sharing of folders. I then removed it and installed PUEL with XP Pro and all the same programs. The USB would not work in PUEL so I removed it and installed it as root to see if it would access the USB's. Halfway through the install it hung and gave me a space error.I cannot get the space back from whatever VB did. I deleted the .vdi's and all VM's and reinstalled VB PUEL to see if I could recover it. Nope. Then I tried GPARTED to try and reset whatever is reading the sizes incorrectly.sudo df -Th gives me:

paul@mobile2:/$ sudo df -Th
[sudo] password for paul:

Software :: Deleting Directories With Baobab - Also Known As Disk Usage Analyzer

Jan 29, 2010

I noticed on a couple of my friend's computers, the baobab with Fedora and Arch Linux was able to delete folders by right clicking on them. The Baobab with Ubuntu does not have that feature. I then looked at then obtained the source code and ran ./configure --help, and saw nothing about enabling that feature.

Fedora :: Hidden Disk Space Usage \ Can't Figure Out Where The Runaway Usage Is?

Dec 10, 2010

I'm running into a problem where my system is running out of disk space on the root partition, but I can't figure out where the runaway usage is. I've had a stable system for a couple of years now, and it just ran out of space. I cleaned some files up to get the system workable again, but can't find the big usage area, and I'm getting conflicting results.For example, when I do a df it says I'm using 44GB out of 58 GB:

[root@Zion ~]# df -h

Ubuntu Installation :: Change The Disk Space Usage?

Apr 21, 2010

well I went to wubi-installer, and installed Ubuntu, and I love it, I don't want to go back to windows 7, but anyways, I set Ubuntu to my D: Drive, (200GB Space) and I installed Steam (Steampowered.com) to get my games on Ubuntu. I installed all of my games, but here is a big problem, I can't figure out how to use more than 30GB on Ubuntu, it just doesn't work. I got GParted, and the D: drive is set to 195 GB (200, but Ubuntu used 5GB)

General :: Use Find To Select Users With A Certain Amount Of Disk Space Usage?

May 16, 2011

I want to find all users shown in the /home/ directory whose disk consumption is more than 500MB. The following command works as expected.

cd /home/ && du */ -hs
68K ajay/
902M john/
250M websites/

From the above example, only 902M john/ should be returned.

How can I make the find command output the same results?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Show Disk Full - Analyzer Says 140 GB Free

Dec 21, 2010

I have a problem on my installation of Ubuntu 10.10: it shows 0kb space remaining in nautilus. When I delete files (also out of Trash) it shows there is again space, but within minutes this free space is full again. When I look in Disk Usage Analyzer it says there is 140 GB available and it is impossible that the complete partition of 190 GB is full. But I cannot save or download anything anymore and the system is not very responsive. So it seems to act as if the disk is completely full.

Ubuntu :: Disk Full - Can't Free Any Disk Space

Jan 2, 2010

I'm running mythbuntu 9.04 and am having an issue with disk space.

I try 'rm' various log files but the space I free up lasts less than a minute before the disk reports as being full once more.

df -Th | sort gives:


/dev/sda1 ext3 8.3G 7.9G 0 100% /
/dev/sda6 ext3 138G 125G 6.3G 96% /music
/dev/sda7 xfs 783G 617G 167G 79% /videos
/dev/sdb2 xfs 344G 242G 103G 71% /recordings


There's nothing enormous in /var/log and my trash and the root trash are empty.

why size and used fields are not the same despite 100% usage being reported on sda1..

General :: Disk Utility And Df Show Different Disk Space ?

Nov 18, 2010

I don't understand disk sizes in Linux. I have a 500GB drive. It's ext4. I have run "tune2fs -m 0" on it to reserve the amount of space reserved for root to 0.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 that comes with a Disk Utility. When I run "System->Administration->Disk Utility (palimpsest)" the disk shows up as 500GB (see picture). But when I run df -h it shows up as 459GB. So, I don't understand the discrepancy.

When I run df I get the following:

Software :: Backup Size Limiting - BackInTime Doesn't Have An Option To Limit Disk Space Used

Oct 15, 2010

I have BackInTime backing up my computer to a RAID cluster. The problem is that BackInTime doesn't have an option to limit disk space used. I also use this drive as a fileserver, and need to be able to keep some space open for that.

Is there a way that I can limit the amount of space a specific folder can take up? Alternately, is it possible to create a disk image that will only take up the amount of space in the image, but can automatically expand to a certain size? It would work similar to the Mac SpaseBundle format.

General :: Windows 7 Disk Management Utility Doesn't Show Disk With Ext3 Partition

Oct 10, 2010

I have a 2 TB disk in an external SATA dock, formatted with a single ext3 (Linux) partition, which doesn't show up in the Windows 7 Computer Management->Disk Management utility, even as a raw/blank disk. I've verified that there's nothing wrong with the disk by connecting it to my Linux machine and mounting it, and I've verified that the dock is functioning properly by connecting a different FAT32-formatted disk, which mounts flawlessly as expected.I realize that I can't actually read the ext3 partition without additional software (e.g., Ext3IFS), but why doesn't the disk show up at all? Is there some sort of stupid anti-Linux filter built in? Is there any way to force Windows to recognize the disk, so that I can at the very least use direct block access with it?

Background: I want to clone an identical 2 TB disk onto this one. Due to my hardware layout, it's much easier to have the source disk attached to one machine and the destination disk connected to another, and do the clone over the network (the network is not a bottleneck with switched gigabit ethernet), than it is to hook them both up to one machine.(1) I did this once before when both machines were running Linux, but I've since upgraded the destination machine and decided to switch back to Windows for regular desktop use. I've got Cygwin installed, and have verified that the same basic method (dd + nc) will work, but I can't do anything if Windows doesn't even consider the destination disk to exist.I only have one eSATA port on each machine. Opening them up just to do this clone is a rather large annoyance. Also, since this is my backup disk, I'd like to eventually automate the cloning from the active disk to another one that I regularly swap with a third disk that I store off-site.

Ubuntu :: Resize Entire /root (root.disk) Virtual Disk Space?

Jan 25, 2011

I'm running out of space in wubi. Online wubi help didn't help much since they suggest creating extra virtual disk space(similar to having a diffrent partition i guess) .None of them speak about increasing the size of /root disk space(or root.disk). I store all files in space shared with windows or external disk and use ubuntu only to install and use softwares and browsing. So how do increase the available space for installing more softwares?

Ubuntu :: No Free Space , File Size Doesn't Match / Fix It?

Feb 17, 2011

In trying to solve a friend's lack of foresight, i have currently disabled my system.
I was using dd_rescue to make a copy of a drive with a corrupt and unfixable Partition Table. I was a fool, and had a drive mounted to /media/Storage, but ran the backup to /media/storage.
Thus, dd_rescue completely filled my primary drive before informing me that there was a problem.
I don't really trust myself with command line work, so I foolishly sudo'ed nautilus and deleted the folder /media/storage.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize it, but the available space on the drive still read 0bytes.
I tried Terminal work to do a sudo apt-get clean command, but for some inane reason, the laptop screen won't support the display setting for the Terminal login, so I just had to hope that I was doing it right.
I wasn't, and decided to try working from a Live CD so I could see what I was doing.
the folder /root/.Trash/ doesn't exist on Ubuntu's install drive, and I can't figure out why the properties of the drive say "contents: 241310 files, 3.7 GB" but also "Total capacity: 52.8 GB. Free space: 0 bytes"

Any suggestions on how I can get this to shake out?

Ubuntu :: Lvm Volume Shown In Test Disk But Not The Partitions

Jan 29, 2011

I have 2 hdd

lvm was created in 2nd partition type primary.

yesterday i had deleted all partitions in the first drive of windows only from ubuntu disk utility. today i went to install windows and the partition space was shown as [139gb] , i thought this is the first hard disk. But my guess is windows must have taken the free space on my home partition inside lvm[ 150gb which roughly translates to 139 GiB.

SO first i deleted the whole partition of 139gb which was shown different in unallocated space as a slight less figure and then i created a 30gb partition on that space shown and went ahead, windows post creation again showed 139gb and then gave a message on next window that partition does not contain data to install windows xp. Strange i thought, this becoz next screen before the format partition as ntfs is all to be shown. Then i just felt something fishy and rebooted and then ubuntu of 2nd hdd is not booting.

I ran test disk from gparted live cd and i find td recovered the boot drive but not the 2nd primary partition in which lvm [root,home,swap] is created. It shows the lvm as 279gb. But not the 3 logical partitions inside it.

Now when i boot post the grub menu i get the following message

This disk contains all my data and the first drive was also wiped out full. test disk is not able to get anything on that windows drive.........

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:


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:
