I ran out of disk space the other day (quite common on this particular computer). As usual I started to delete files and directories to restore a bit of space.
However this time the file system still reports that I don't have any disk space available.
Here's what df reports:
replicant:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/md1 687G 672G 0 100% / tmpfs 250M 0 250M 0% /lib/init/rw udev 10M 716K 9.4M 7% /dev tmpfs 250M 0 250M 0% /dev/shm overflow 1.0M 1.0M 0 100% /tmp
If I'm calculating this right I should have approximately 15GB available on
/. Can anyone explain this to me? It's not just
df calculating this incorrectly because I can't create files or anything on the file system.
I'm running ext3 on Debian 5.0.
