    Re: Disk full

    Have you emptied trash?
    And if using sudo , emptied root's trash which can be difficult to do?

    Post this:

    df -H

    Re: Disk full

    2 hardrives.. Sda which the maindrive and a second harddrive Sdb... Mounted sdb1 partion onto media folder.. Media/hardrive2... Ran rsync to copy changes from sda to sdb1 via folder media/hardrive2 mounted folder... Rsync would complete and the Ubuntu os would unmount hardrive2 folder...Then we would remount media/hardrive2... However we were not aware that when we remount the old mount was still there and the rsync files were copied into hardrive2 folder... The os overlays or 'hides' the first folder and writes to the second folder.. This is what I suspect has taken up the space.. Based on my reading... I have tried mount - - bind which did show one folder under mrdia/hardrive2 mount with info on it.. Which I unmount... However the hard drive sda says still full.... I suspect that remount multiple times cause multiple overlays.. Which I cannot seem to locate in media/hardrive2 via bind mount... Please help
