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?

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...

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
Disk /dev/sdk: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes

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:

Hardware :: Reduced Disk Space / Use The Total Amount Of Space?

Aug 25, 2009

OS: RHEL AS 5 64-bit

HDD:300 GB Hardware mirror (HP blade bl460c)

While installing OS, in partition window after OS file system structure I've left 277 GB. But after installation it shows Size - 255GB and available disk space is 242 GB.

Isn't it weired? How can I use the total amount of space in Linux? I need the whole 277GB exactly. What should be my workaround?

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:

Question: Why is Disk Utility showing me something different than "df"?

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Space - Failes On A "E: Write Error - Write (28 No Space Left On Device)"

Jan 4, 2011

df -h [URL] I did the following command to find everything is in /usr or /var, then tracked it down to /usr/lib and /usr/share as the main offenders, but out of all the directories none are more than 1mb or so.

du -sh /* | sort -gr | head -n 5

I tried to uninstall firefox, which is what got me in this mess in the first place, the log claims it will remove ~240 mb but failes on a "E: Write error - write (28 No space left on device)" [URL] If I could juggle something onto an external hard drive so I can uninstall firefox I would be out of the wood. Failing that I believe a new install is in order.

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 :: Missing Space On Itouch?

May 18, 2010

Normally, when ever I have an issue with ubuntu (which, for me, is often; I'm quite new), theres generally an error message to google, but such is not the case this time. So, I finally got my itouch to sync with gtkpod, but I accidentally messed up the process and didn't do the first sync properly, which meant the Firewire GUID wasn't properly set up, which then means every time I try to add music, it takes up space, but isn't recognized by the device. Well, I ended up find out and fixing the problem, but now my ipod has about 1g of music on it that is not recognized by my ipod, and thus, very hard to find and delete. Is there a way to get my space back, without formatting the itouch?

Ubuntu :: 41GB Of Space Missing / Why Is So?

Sep 25, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu 10.04 since it came out and I was just wondering why 41GB of space is missing. You see, I did a complete repartition and reformat of my 320GB hard disk (already tried ext3 and ext4) and assigned 2GB for swap, 10GB for /, and 308GB for /home. Thing is, when I check the available disk space of, say, Videos or Documents (which, I understand, are contained in /home), only around 267GB of space is available. If I run the Disk Utility program it reports the capacities correctly (2GB, 10GB and 308GB). This didn't happen with Ubuntu 9.10. Where did my 41GB go and how can I get it back? I don't think it's accounted for by the differences in the way the OS counts bytes (powers of 2 or actual number of bytes), because 41GB is a big chunk of 308GB.

Software :: Space Missing From Ext4 Filesystem Ubuntu 10.10

Dec 26, 2010

I have a 6x1TB RAID5 set up for testing on ubuntu created with mdadm and formatted with an ext4 fs.

This is being shared over CIFS for windows clients. When looking at the fs from both the file box and the clients, it says 4.47TiB total capacity, and 4.24TiB free space. The only folder is Lost+Found which is empty.

I don't have much experience in Linux filesystems as of yet and I don't understand where this 300 gigs has gone!

Is it something to do with journaling?

Server :: /usr Missing Free Space?

Aug 23, 2010

just some time ago, my /usr partition's used space is started to increase rapidly, and currently it reached 17.5GB. We put /usr as a separate partition (/dev/sda2)

So when we do "df" this is the result:

/dev/sda2 20315844 17612628 1654576 92% /usr

But what makes me puzzled is if I do "du", I only get 4.3GB instead of 20GB as "df" reported.

# du -csh /usr
4.3G /usr
4.3G total

So I'm missing approx 13GB here. My question is:where does my 13GB missing?

Ubuntu :: Get More Disk Space For U11.04?

Jun 11, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 (with wubi) and selected that I wanted 10 GB of disk space for Ubuntu.

There are two things I want to do now, so two questions:

1. How do I delete Windows OS from my computer? It's a new computer so I am sure I want to delete and I did not download anything but a few things on it.

2. After I do that, how do I set Ubuntu so that it's not still at 10 GB of disk space.

Ubuntu :: Re-sized An Iso With K9copy - Missing Hard Drive Space

Sep 18, 2010

This is not a huge deal but I have missing hard drive space, I re-sized an iso with k9copy I then used mv to move it to the other iso like so:

Code: mv this.iso that.iso which moved and renamed it, however I did not get any drive space back by effectively "deleting" the first iso. So my question is do I have an unnamed iso file floating around that cannot be deleted?

Ubuntu :: My Disk Keeps Running Out Of Space

Apr 27, 2010

A few days ago, I got a message that stated I had zero bytes of disk space left.Odd, I thought, but I had been doing video transcribing and thought that may be the issue.I moved a video (4 GB) off the hard drive to an external drive and then went about my business.This morning, I got the message again. I enclosed a screen shot. I moved a few more items off my hard drive - but then was soon out of space again. (Less than an hour later.)I logged in as root and poked around. I noticed that /var/archives had almost 60 GB of data in .tar.gz files.I moved them off to an external drive and am okay for now.

Ubuntu :: Extract ISO With Low Disk Space?

Jun 25, 2010

I've got a slicehost VPS with 10GB disk space, and I'm trying to extract a 6.4gb ISO file. Between the ISO and the OS i've got just 761MB to play with. Is there anyway to extract files from within the ISO without needing another 6.4gb?

I've tried mounting the ISO as read/write so I could move files instead of copy, but did not have any luck. See here and here.

Should I just give up, download the iso, then re-upload the files? 6.4gb represents a long time over dsl.

The result is the same with the graphical "Disk Usage Analyzer." However, Under System>Administration>Disk Utility the correct number is displayed.
