    I'm really glad you said to not upgrade. I was on the verge of doing just that. So thanks.

    I couldn't get an output for the df -hT|egrep '\''^/dev|[:/]/'\''' command.
    jess@ranha-system:~$ df -hT|egrep '\''^/dev|[:/]/'\'''
    jess@ranha-system:~$ df -hT|egrep '\''^/dev|[:/]/'\'''
    jess@ranha-system:~$

    When I put in your second ask I get this:

    Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    The root problem is still that / is 100% full.

    Is there a reason for having full backups every time? I thought the default in duplicity/deja-dup was to do full backups only once a month with daily incremental backups. A daily backup that takes more than 3-5 minutes is just too long. Anyway, like kpatz said, move those backup files out of your HOME. IMHO, never keep backups in HOME - keep them on separate physical disks, never on the same disk from where the backup was taken.

    duplicity is good in one way - the backup sets don't care about the underlying storage file system. The owner, group, permissions, and ACLs are included inside the backup set files, not in the file system like rsync backups use. This is good.

    Below is just extra info ....
    Something funky happening with the copy/paste of characters in my command, it seems. Probably a mix of issues on my side and in the forums. The main command is:
    Code:
    df -Th
    All the other stuff after that is to remove unwanted things in the output - like logical devices that don't impact storage at all.

    Code:
    lsblk -f
    shows some things, just in a different way, not the storage used, but other, often important, things.

    Please use code tags whenever posting anything from a terminal. That applies across all threads here. We are used to seeing that output and columns matter. Please.

    Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    This doesn't work for me either:
    Code:
    df -hT|egrep '\''^/dev|[:/]/'\'''
    Removing the extra single quotes and tweaking the regex a bit allows it to work (now I just get the lines with /dev/):
    Code:
    df -hT|egrep '^/(dev|[:/])/'
    Then to get rid of the loop mounts, I added another grep:
    Code:
    df -hT|egrep '^/(dev|[:/])/' | grep -v '/dev/loop'
    So try that last one.

    EDIT: The regex will also drop zfs mounts from the list. This doesn't matter in the OP's case since he doesn't have any zfs mounts, but if you don't want those stripped, use this instead:
    Code:
    df -hT|egrep '(^/(dev|[:/])/|zfs)' | grep -v '/dev/loop'

    I give up. I'd hoped to be helpful and I've failed terrible.

    We're down a rabbit hole that was solved 3-6 posts ago, right?

    Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    Looks like you copied one of your forum posts (one that had the output of a df command) into your terminal window and tried to execute it as commands. This doesn't work, and could cause harm depending on what was copied/pasted.

    The overall issue is the deja dup files in HOME. Move those somewhere else and you should be good to go. Ideally, put them on an external drive and store them elsewhere... that's what a backup is for.

    Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    Got it. I try to find logical places to put in code tags, but I'm just guessing as to where they should go.

    I have had problems with Deja Dup for years. Sometimes it works, more times not. A lot of the 92 Deja Dup files are partial backups and they won't restore. Most recently
    I figured out that I was attempting to store them in the wrong place. The automatic destination was set to a folder that would not work. This went on for years. Sometimes it
    worked, other times not. I'd try to figure it out, but was frustrated. I'd try to jigger it to work, but no way. And I'd move on to more productive tasks.
    If it looked like it was working, I'd let it be and hoped I wouldn't crash.
    Recently, I had the idea to change the destination folder to an external drive and it worked. Voila!
    I don't know how those media files got there.
    When I got the external drive and formatted it, that's when it split into so many small partitions. Again, it didn't impact my day-to-day use so I left them. I've looked at them many times with
    G-parted, but trusted my ignorance to leave everything alone. Murphy's law rules my world. If it's possible to mess up something important it will.

    Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    Looks like you're pasting output into the terminal window again.

    Step by step, do this:

    1. Copy and paste THIS command from my post into your terminal:
    Code:
    df -hT|egrep '(^/(dev|[:/])/|zfs)' | grep -v '/dev/loop'
    You should get a bunch of stuff in your terminal that looks a bunch of lines like:

    Code:
    /dev/sda8 6889472 1796562 5092910 27% /media/jess/a2aad275-090f-490e-a903-e4b68f52eb19
    2. Highlight those lines with the mouse, then copy this output from your terminal (right click, choose Copy). Do not paste it into the terminal, or click the middle button on your mouse while it's over the terminal or you'll get all those errors.

    3. Reply to this thread, and paste the output into the reply box (or middle click to paste, in the reply box). Add [code] and [/code] around the output after pasting, or if you use Advanced Reply, highlight the output you pasted and click the button that looks like a #. This will add the code tags to whatever you highlighted.

    Click Preview Post and make sure it looks correct. Then click Submit Reply.

    EDIT: I see this in your mis-pasted terminal post:
    Code:
    /dev/sda9 4808704 299470 4509234 7% /
    Did you move your deja files out of HOME? Looks like you have plenty of free space on root now!

    Hey. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
    Too much going on here. I've gone a little goofy today.
