    Re: Value of reserved blocks is sometimes changed

    Can you please post the output of
    Code:
    du -sh | grep -v snap
    lsblk -fmap | grep -v snap
    so we can see what partitions and sizes you actually have.

    @raleigh3
    With my apologies, please can you also post the output of
    Code:
    df -h | grep -v snap
    However, we can see that you do indeed have a single 2TB partition for Linux, and a 300G external drive.
    At the moment, I expect to see that 2TB is, as you say, 2% full which would leave me wondering what this is all about.
    Please can you explain how you set the reserved blocks to 1%, and how you see their usage (post command and output if possible). It's not that we're doubting what you say, but it eliminates the possibility of misunderstandings.

    Re: Value of reserved blocks is sometimes changed

    [QUOTE=raleigh3;13978913]Does this refer to my 2 Tbytes of space on my hard drive or the reserved blocks being used up?

    Re-read #9 above. It is about full file systems. That's what df and df -i show.

    Technically speaking, directories don't fill up - well, beyond just having so many files that access becomes slow. File systems do fill up. Directories with over about 400 files get slower and slower as more files are added. That's just the nature of having to retrieve and display information on so much file information. When working on directories with 100,000+ files, normal commands just don't work. They break. Best to build a directory tree.

    IMHO, having / over about 25G is a poor storage design choice. Keep the OS separate from all data. A Unix OS will never need over 100G of storage, no matter how bloated the OS may be. Keep the data separate from the OS.
