I have done everything I know about, and now I'm completely lost.
I'm getting an error on my Storage partition. The drive is a ntfs, and I'm using
ntfs-3g, the disk is being shared between my Windows and my Linux partitions.
But I don't think that any of that should be an issue though.
I started off with the obvious
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 772G 434G 339G 57% /media/Storage
The partition that is of interest is
/dev/sda3 -- the partition labeled
It seems I'm only using 57%.
I then booted into my Windows partition and ran a
chkdsk e: /r on the drive. It did find and correct some errors. However, it didn't fix the 'no space left on disk' error.
After some googling, I notice a lot of people with the same problem found a solution that deals with inodes, so I check that
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on /dev/sda3 340M 414K 339M 1% /media/Storage
/dev/sda3 is only using 1% of inodes, and according to @grawity. NTFS won't have problems with inodes since the space is dynamically allocated.
I ran a
dmesg, but there doesn't seem to be anything obviously wrong, nothing that I can tell, but I'm not very familiar with the contents.

I was requested to look at
ntfs-3g --version since apparently there used to be a bug where it would report 'no space left on device', but that was an older version.
ntfs-3g 2012.1.15AR.1 external FUSE 28
ntfs fragmentation does not seem to be the problem as it only had a 5% fragmentation. The partition was defragmented regardless.
As requested this is the output of a
