We had our Samba server (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) share fill up the other day, but when I went to look at it I could't see any of the shares have too much on them.
We have 5 group shares and then each user has an individual share.
One user has 22 GB of stuff. A few others have 10-20 MB of stuff and everyone else's are empty.
So maybe like 26 GB total.
I deleted a few files yesterday and freed up about 250 MB of space. Today when I checked it it was completely full again and I deleted some older files and freed up about 170 MB of stuff, but I can watch it slowly creep down in free space.
I keep running a
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 241690180 229340500 169200 100% / varrun 257632 260 257372 1% /var/run varlock 257632 0 257632 0% /var/lock udev 257632 72 257560 1% /dev devshm 257632 52 257580 1% /dev/shm lrm 257632 40000 217632 16% /lib/modules/2.6.24-28-generic
What can I do to try to hunt down what's taking up so much of my HDD? (I'm fairly new to Unix in general so I apologize if this is not well explained.)
After running a
sudo du -sch * I got the following.
root@MON-PDC:/# sudo du -sch * 5.2M bin 106M boot 0 cdrom 136K dev 16M etc du: cannot access `home/administrator/.gvfs': Permission denied 216G home 4.0K initrd 0 initrd.img 0 initrd.img.old 767M lib 16K lost+found 12K media 4.0K mnt 4.0K opt du: cannot access `proc/7311/task/7311/fd/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access `proc/7311/task/7311/fdinfo/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access `proc/7311/fd/3': No such file or directory du: cannot access `proc/7311/fdinfo/3': No such file or directory 0 proc 436K root 6.8M sbin 4.0K srv 0 sys 100K tmp 2.0G usr 492M var 0 vmlinuz 0 vmlinuz.old 219G total
I noticed that Home is taking up 216 GB.
So I checked that out the home directory and there is a user that shows as 209 GB of data.
But when I run the
du -sch * command from under his dir I get only 23 GB of data.
What am I missing?
