I don't want to rush into conclusions, but I have this problem that I have not been able to solve.
This morning I found that my diskspace was full. After being mildly surprised, I went to erase a big portion of it (~60 GB). Interestingly, a couple of hours later the disk was full again and I definitely did not save as much.
As I deleted other directories, I noticed that the free space was not getting larger, but rather it remained constantly close to zero. There seemed to be a vino-server app which I killed.
Later, space got stable at around 1 GB. I analyzed the disk space with baobab and it showed that my home directory was full (df gives the same result), but on a closer inspection (check png file attached), the maximum directory has only 45 GB. The only place that baobab cannot access is .gvfs directory (running baobab on sudo)
So I am assuming that the remaining diskspace is located there. However, du states the directory has exactly 0 bytes.Code:** (baobab:2453): WARNING **: error in dir /home/roberto: Error stating file '/home/roberto/.gvfs': Permission denied
This problem has shown up in different form before, but none of the answers seem to help out in my case.
I'd appreciate any ideas to solve this.
