Just posted a thread in the Ubuntu forums:
OK so last night I was doing an rsync backup, as you do on a Thursday evening, and rsync stalled saying something about not enough memory…
So I had a look at my filesystems (/ partition for OS; and /home partition for my stuff) and it says that /dev/sda1 is 100% full.
result is machine is grinding to a halt, and apps are shutting down…
df command in terminal says the same thing.
however, when i use “Properties” (right click on directory names) it shows the whole of / as only 5.2GB, on a 14.4 partition…
touch /forcefsk => doesn’t seem to have done anything:
i don’t seem to have any masive log files:
googling for “/dev/sda1 full” doesn’t seem to yield much
so something is fishy methinks… and I’m wondering if any of the fine people here could help?
