file system full (trash)

Post#1 by fi5ban » 12 Feb 2014, 19:05

I not sure if this is a bug or not?

I ran in to an issue I was testing "dd command " and it wrote a file to root I killed the job before it finished. It put the file in the trash under /mnt/live/memory/changes/"not sure the rest"
then when rebooted no space to boot till I found the temp and deleted it

Thanks

Code: Select all

df -h /mnt/live/memory/changes/
This will tell you how much space you have. Without more info I would say it is not a bug.

This is the quote from the bug report category info:

Sorry for short note on what happen will try more detail (what I get for staying up late with Porteus :oops:

I was running "dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=~/backup.img" of course this was writing to my root on my 12g usb drive and when I realized this I killed the process but it had got to about 9g when terminated it. after that it said I was out of space. I booted to a fresh and ran disk analyzer on it and found in "/mnt/live/memory/changes/.Trash-0/files" the backup.img. (hidden files view)

I tried empty trash both in guest and root sign on, but was empty. This also happened when tried doing an make_iso.sh and it failed. I ended up booting fresh and going in and manually deleting the files which then all was fine space was back????
