I'm running Arch on a 32 GB partition I made from free space on one of my HDDs (I have two). At first I thought I would rarely use it, but now I'm using it daily and I shrank my Windows D: drive by 100GB, thus generating 100GB of free space. I formatted it and did mkfs to install ext3 file system on it. Now I want to use that free space as an extended /home and /usr partition.
On my desktop it says I have a 206GB File System, and I look at the properties for it, and it has space. However, when I try to download something, whether its from a browser, apt-get, or whatever, it says I don't have enough disk space!
I checked the normal 'File System' mount, and that one only has a few kb's free. Any way to get it to use the 206GB one?
Without installing or downloading anything the free space on my file system is dropping by about 100 megs/minute. Not long ago I freed up 7GB after free space ran out last night and already its back down to 2.7GB.
I have a VPS with a company on the web. I installed ngetty and as a result reclaimed 105MB on the VPS. The VPS instantly show the additional 105MB free space. Now, several days later, the VPS is down to 56MB of free space. I have purged all logs and other data files that periodically increase their size, but the purge doesn't make a dent in the free space loss.
Hello! I am having an issue with free space. I am currently using an older model dell with an 80GB HDD. I have confirmed this with gparted but when I open up the file manager it says I only have 23 GiB in free space available. I need access to much more free space than that. Any help?
