Here is an output of the 'du -sh *' command I performed as root on '/'.
Code: Select all
root / # du -sh * 0 bin 0 boot 0 dev 20M etc du: cannot access 'home/guest/.gvfs': Permission denied 2.8G home 3.8M include 0 lib 0 lib64 du: cannot access 'mnt/live/proc/8342/task/8342/fd/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access 'mnt/live/proc/8342/task/8342/fdinfo/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access 'mnt/live/proc/8342/fd/4': No such file or directory du: cannot access 'mnt/live/proc/8342/fdinfo/4': No such file or directory 5.8G mnt 0 opt 53K root 608K run 0 sbin 0 srv 6.4M tmp 2.1G usr 212M var
Also, my laptop is suppose to have 1TB of storage space, so I expected a total size of at least 950 GiB. What took up almost 90 GiB of space?
Sorry if these are basic questions, but I just cannot seem to wrap my head around this.
On a side note, what are those errors I am getting? If such files or directories do not exist, how does 'du -sh *' even know that its suppose to search for them? What kind of wtichcraft is this? If it doesn't exist in the first place, how do you even know about it?
